"Use the good thoughts of wise people." -Tolstoy
The idea for this book was born 22 years ago when I began offering six brief leadership principles once a week by email under the title of "Thoughts While Shaving." I work on the "Thoughts" throughout the week, then every Sunday evening they are sent to a growing list of subscribers.
The book is the result of encouragement to consolidate these leadership principles into a convenient reference format. This has further led to the development of the Real Leaders Institute designed to give on-site leadership presentations with Real Leaders Digest as its publications arm.
“It will be an honor to add your book to my personal library. I have marked several of the passages for easy reference.”
- James L. Jones, Former National Security Adviser, Commandant of the Marine Corps
