quote from my latest book, Leaders Wanted

"When asked why the sabertooth tiger went extinct, we’re reminded that his mouth got him into trouble.  When tempted to say something mean, don’t.  When we’re tempted to say something untrue or unkind about someone, we should bite our tongue.  On the other hand, when the thought of saying or doing something nice enters our minds, we should go out of our way to do it."

--Jeffrey Denning, author of Leaders Wanted

The Art of Compassion, an excerpt from my book Leaders Wanted

"One of the most basic loving principles of humankind, one of the most beneficial elements each human being is capable of possessing, is the art of compassion.  Compassion is often developed or increased out of personal hardships.  More often than not, difficulty is the conduit for acquiring sympathy and compassion.  As we more fully understand and embrace the blessings of compassion, we gain gratitude that the suffering we experienced gave us something meaningful as a result.

First feedback from my new book, Leaders Wanted

I ordered the book immediately ... and it downloaded immediately. I am now 60 % through the book and it is a very well written book that everyone should read. Over my fifty years of military and law enforcement experience I was a personal witness to all of the forms of leadership or lack of it. I learned many of the examples you write of from both good and bad leaders. I tried very hard to use those techniques that you use as examples in my own commands and I agree with you that there is no substitute for personal integrity. Without integrity you are nothing but an empty suit.

I wish I had a copy of this book 50 years ago, It would have saved me from having to learn the lessons of leadership the hard way. Oh, and by the way, I'm still learning. Keep up the good work and I will recommend your book to everyone who will listen to me.
