Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:

In today's fiercely competitive world, it takes more than "business as usual" to stay strong and stay ahead of the curve. It takes Triple Crown Leadership. Inspired by the most elusive championship in sports, the Triple Crown of horseracing, this compelling road map is designed for leaders at all levels, from supervisors to CEOs. If you want to win, you'll want this book.

Triple Crown Leadership provides helpful tools for any leader seeking a better way. The book shows you how to:
  • Be excellent (achieve exceptional performance), ethical (do the right thing), and enduring (stand the test of time)
  • Align your organization for peak performance
  • Instill a culture of character
  • Lead with both "steel" and "velvet"
  • Achieve impact and sustainability while maintaining high performance.
  • Turn your company around after a breakdown.
Based on the authors' experience and interviews with over sixty organizations in eleven countries, this book provides compelling leadership lessons from an array of enterprises, including Zappos, Google, eBay, Infosys, Xerox, Spotify, Mayo Clinic, KIPP, Ashoka, and more. Executives Bob and Gregg Vanourek—a dynamic father and son team—show you how to achieve high performance, integrity, and sustainability.

In horseracing, it takes more than speed for a horse like Secretariat to win the Triple Crown. In organizations, it takes both head and heart, commitment to an inspiring cause, steel and velvet leadership, stewardship, and alignment—the practices of triple crown leadership. Triple Crown Leadership also provides hard-hitting, practical advice on leading turnarounds, startups, and social ventures—and addresses the leadership needed from CEOs, boards, senior managers, and even people without authority.
