Discover Bernard’s Leadership Guidebook

The Skills of an Effective Leader is a self-help conversation with the reader about practical issues and valuable considerations that affect the quality of leadership. The book provides the reader with concepts and tools that will allow them to improve their understanding of leadership and their impact as a leader. It includes insights, principles, observations, concepts, and other useful information about leadership that not only informs but also instructs the reader on the role of the leader and the topic of leadership. Each reader will be challenged to examine the way they practice the “art of leadership.”

As a purchaser of the book, you will be extended an invitation to join our exclusive leadership learning community, a powerful resource to continue our learning conversation and engage with Bernard and others in learning about leadership. This community will provide a number of other resources to continuously broaden the conversation and extend your leadership learning beyond the book.
