10TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION, REVISED AND UPDATED
In this new edition of their classic business fable, Ken Blanchard and Mark Miller get at the heart of what makes a leader successful. Newly promoted but struggling young executive Debbie Brewster asks her mentor the one question she desperately needs answered: “What is the secret of great leaders?” His reply—“great leaders serve”—flummoxes her, but over time he reveals the five fundamental ways that leaders succeed through service. Along the way she learns:

• Why great leaders seem preoccupied with the future
• How people on the team ultimately determine your success or failure
• What three arenas require continuous improvement
• Why true success in leadership has two essential components
• How to knowingly strengthen—or unwittingly destroy—leadership credibility

The tenth anniversary edition includes a leadership self-assessment so readers can measure to what extent they lead by serving and where they can improve. The authors also have added answers to the most frequently asked questions about how to apply the SERVE model in the real world.

As practical as it is uplifting, The Secret shares Blanchard’s and Miller’s wisdom about leadership in a form that anyone can easily understand and implement. This book will benefit not only those who read it but also the people who look to them for guidance and the organizations they serve.

  1. One Secret that is not Meant to Be Kept! Ken Blanchard and Mark Miller’s 10th Anniversary edition of The Secret is definitely not meant to be kept to yourself!An updated version of their classic business fable, The Secret captivates the reader through an intriguing narrative centered around the simple but profound secret: “great leaders serve.”Some of my earliest professional training was based on the writings of Ken Blanchard, and his works continue to both line my shelf and inform my leadership...

  2. Good Servant Leadership instruction A pretty good illustration of the importance of the Servant Leadership model in management. The writing style verges on being trite and cliche at times, but the book provides a realy good example of how the Servant Leadership model in implemented in practice and whatthat looks like in a company.

  3. An easy read with a simple and straightforward message. An easy read with a simple and straightforward message. I have read many self-help to management type books from my graduate school days to running various companies and never have found a more clear way to present its message! I plan to have all my five children read and study this book as a new step to being a good leader willing to serve others.
