Triple Crown Leadership: Building Excellent, Ethical, and Enduring Organizations

By Gregg Vanourek, Bob Vanourek

Triple Crown Leadership teaches executives and managers how to protect their organizations values, reputation, and profitability by focusing not only on culture, but organizational character; seeking solutions to challenges from all levels of personnel; and skillfully blending a hard-edged demand for results with a soft-edged spirit of collaboration.
