Dr. Palmisano's Latest Book:

 

THE LITTLE RED BOOK OF LEADERSHIP LESSONS
published October 23, 2012 in hardcover and e-format (Kindle, iBooks, Nook, Kobo)
 
In the weeks following the presidential election, the question of what truly makes a good leader is on everyone's mind. Anyone can claim to be a leader in times of calm, but crisis situations separate the true visionaries from the false ones. Recent events in global affairs make it increasingly apparent that nations must cultivate and encourage true leaders—and eschew false ones—if they hope to survive. In the wake of the election, Americans are curious to see how our leaders in government will handle the economic and diplomatic challenges of leading our country.

Fortunately, effective leadership is a skill that can be taught, especially through the study of exemplary figures of the past. Donald J. Palmisano explores the vital qualities that every American should look for in a leader by gleaning lessons from great figures throughout history. By analyzing the wisdom of famous leaders, readers will learn about the importance of courage, persistence, decisiveness, and communication as the foundation of a strong leader. The Little Red Book of Leadership Lessons provides crucial advice for those who aspire to become effective leaders in any position.
 
This is a book of ideas; ideas devoted to leadership that promotes liberty.  It is a quotation book that contains 106 illustrations and photos with 96 in color. 
 
The multiple great reviews of the book include the excerpts from these 3 reviewers: 
 
"...a treasure trove of inspiration, wisdom and guidance.  This book deserves its rightful place next to Sun Tzu's Art of War - Yes, it is that good."
 
"This book is the perfect gift for young people--tomorrow's leaders--and I personally think should be on every teenager's desk. The rest of us will have the perspective to even better appreciate the relevance and importance of the principles that Dr. Palmisano has so carefully collected."
 
"Again Dr Palmisano has hit it out of the park. The book is a fast, timely read. The style from his previous books on leadership works very well in this new format. It is full of timely quotations that are both informative and reusable. He has added new leaders and their unique leadership talents. Well worth the price."

Money Talks
 
With all the talk of social media, employee happiness, and a self-actualized workplace, there’s still no denying that the economy weighs heavily on this category, and the economy is not in tip-top shape. As Skyhorse associate publisher Bill Wolfsthal puts it, “In this economy, everyone is looking for help. We’re trying to publish good books at a good price that will inspire people to succeed and give them the practical information they need to succeed.” Coming along these lines from the publisher is Donald J. Palmisano’s Little Red Book of Leadership Lessons (Oct.).
 
 

Dr. Palmisano's previous book:  ON LEADERSHIP

Expanded 2nd Edition
by Donald J. Palmisano

Foreword by Bobby Jindal, Governor of Louisiana

 

“This book is an
invaluable tool.”

─ Bill Frist, former U.S.
Senate Majority Leader

Every day, leaders around the world make decisions that affect millions of people. The results of these decisions are mixed. Sometimes—like when Nelson Mandela led the fight against apartheid—our leaders inspire positive change on a grand scale. But at other times—like when various leaders failed to respond adequately to Hurricane Katrina—poor leadership yields disastrous outcomes. Anyone can claim to be a leader in times of calm, but crisis situations sift the true visionaries from the false ones. Recent events in global affairs make it increasingly apparent that nations must cultivate and encourage true leaders and eschew false ones if they hope to survive.


Fortunately, effective leadership is a skill that can be taught, especially through the study of exemplary figures of the past and present. In each chapter of On Leadership, Dr. Donald J. Palmisano gives a guided analysis of real-life situations from which readers will learn detailed, practical methods and strategies for becoming leaders. This book provides crucial advice for people who aspire to become effective leaders in any position and serves as a guide for choosing true leaders on Election Day.
