Lee aptly observes, and I agree, that Accountability is crucial to success and that Wise people welcome the guardrails that accountability provides to keep them on track and avoid going over the cliff. I would add: Wise ministries also welcome the guardrails. You will want to give this book to your leadership team to positively impact your organization! - Dan Busby, President - ECFA Engage with Honor is a winner all around! Lee Ellis has surpassed his last book, Leading with Honor, which I thoroughly treasured and quoted often in my own writings. Engage with Honor centers on what is lacking in leadership and organizations today building a culture of accountability. Accountability is a dimension of leadership that seems to have been lost and it is heartening to see it featured in this book. The principle of engaging with honor and his practical ideas on how to do it should be required reading for all managers, leaders, and those who aspire to be. - Archie B. Carroll, PhD, Professor of Management Emeritus - Terry College of Business, University of Georgia Once again, Lee has integrated his very personal life experiences as a Vietnam POW to provide very pertinent and valuable leadership lessons applicable for any leader!! I couldn t have anticipated the significant lessons embedded in the Courageous Accountability Model. Throughout the entire book, the lessons shared served as not only a refresher but a graduate level course in leadership as well. - Carol H. Burrell, President and CEO, Northeast Georgia Health System I can t think of a better person to write about engaging with honor than Lee Ellis. The lessons he learned in courageous accountability, as a combat pilot and POW in Vietnam, permeate this rich and rewarding book. Lee takes his wartime experiences and relates them to what leaders need to do today to powerfully engage those they lead with both honor and accountability. Every leader on every level needs to read this book to engage a culture where honor is lacking and needed more than ever before. - Dick Bruso, Founder of Heard Above The Noise [In Engage with Honor], you have taken a challenging time in your life [as a POW] and extracted the very best lessons from it that continue to build layers upon layers to offer greater perspective on our life s full journey. As we all know, it is the challenges in life that most define us. This book gives you a very practical look at how to rise above, embrace, and take ownership of them. - Janine Sijan Rozina, Sister of Vietnam POW Lance Sijan and Founder of Team Sijan "
