When a quality publishing house releases only one book a year, you know it will be a blockbuster.

That’s always been the case with award-winning Bard Press, which has brought out 18 business bestsellers over the past 25 years.

This year the business boutique imprint has tapped authors Ed O’Malley and Julia Fabris McBride. Their book, When Everyone Leads: The Toughest Challenges Get Seen and Solved, offers a revolutionary model that allows everyone to claim the mantle of “leader,” no matter how high up or low down they are on the organizational chart.

In When Everyone Leads, the authors lay out their five core tenets of leadership.

  1. Leadership is an activity, not a position
  2. Anyone can lead, anytime, anywhere
  3. Leadership starts with you and must engage others
  4. Leadership is risky
  5. Leadership is about your toughest challenges

Ed and Julia know the genuine mechanisms of leadership.

The two authors honed their insights into leadership at the Kansas Leadership Center, which they launched in 2007. Ed’s background was in government and politics. Julia was an actor turned leadership coach.

Working from the premise that the quality and quantity of leadership is the key determinant

to prosperity, health, and success for organizations and communities, under their guidance the Kansas Leadership Center has empowered more than 15,000 individuals to set aside outdated concepts of leadership and anoint themselves pathfinders.

As Ed and Julia explain to host and award-winning author Dean Rotbart, anyone can lead, anytime, anywhere. Is it your turn to step up?

_____

Bard Press — founded by the incomparable Ray Bard and now piloted by veteran author, literary agent, editor, and blogger Todd Sattersten — picks winners. Among its most-recognized titles:

The Gift of Struggle: Life-Changing Lessons About Leading by Bobby Herrera 

The ONE Thing: The Surprisingly Simple Truth Behind Extraordinary Results by Gary W. Keller and Jay Papasan

Little Red Book of Selling: 12.5 Principles of Sales Greatness by Jeffrey Gitomer

The Wizard of Ads: Turning Words into Magic and Dreamers into Millionaires by Roy Williams

When Everyone Leads will soon take its place among the pantheon of Bard Press success stories.

Jack and Patti Phillips, a husband and wife Ph.D. duo, lead the ROI Institute, which provides a scalable and systematic approach to program evaluation. Their proprietary ROI Methodology is the most used and implemented such system in the world, adopted by 27 governments and three-fourths of the FORTUNE 500.

The Phillipses have a combined five decades of experience evaluating the wisdom of investing in so-called “soft skills,” including employee training, human resources, community outreach, and DEI - Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.

Companies large and small pour hefty sums into these and similar programs, but do they get their money’s worth?

The Phillipses know the answer and in their latest book, Show the Value of What You Do, they make ROI Methodology accessible and easy to implement for every business owner and executive, whether assessing an existing program or planning new projects.

As host and award-winning journalist Dean Rotbart says, “At last when directors or supervisors demand, ‘Prove to me the value’ of your projects, you can do exactly that, thanks to Jack and Patti.”

Can you teach yourself and your colleagues to generate great ideas — ideas genuinely worth pursuing?

Robin Landa, an author and professor of design at Kean University in Union, New Jersey, has made a career studying where breakthrough ideas come from — so-called ideation —  and how anyone can conjure concepts that will be revolutionary.

Robin’s latest book is The New Art of Ideas: Unlock Your Creative Potential. In it, she identifies the required foundation of every good idea: Goal, Gap, and Gain - or what she terms the 3Gs.

Robin doesn’t promise that if you read her book, you or your employees will become the next Mark Twain, Albert Einstein, or Steve Jobs. But she doesn’t rule it out either.

Play along as host and award-winning author Dean Rotbart quizzes Robin — a Jeopardy enthusiast — on her mastery of various categories of creativity. And be sure your response is in the form of a question.
