There are thousands of books available on leadership, but few adequately address the issues that are at the root cause of this crisis. The symptoms may indeed be lack of trust, low employee engagement, and dysfunctional teams; however, the root cause of these symptoms is the character of the leader. The leadership failures in politics, businesses, and homes make it abundantly clear that these failures are rarely a result of a leader not knowing what they should do. The failure usually happens because something in the leader’s character prevents them from choosing to do the right thing.
If a leadership book does mention character, it tells readers they need to have character, but does not explain how to develop it. Becoming a Leader of Character aims to fill the gap in the leadership literature. Using personal examples from leading at West Point, in combat, and in business, the Andersons layout a simple, yet challenging workout plan designed to strengthen six habits of character that any reader can use to become a leader of character in any setting.
Each chapter ends with a list of achievable “exercises” designed to grow a leader’s character through consistency. Readers can also take a character assessment to determine the qualities they most need to work on, and focus more on those specific chapters. Becoming a Leader of Character is an essential tool that leaves each reader with a better understanding of how to develop their own character and the character of the people they lead at work and at home.
