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.
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communities, under their guidance the Kansas Leadership Center has empowered more than 15,000 individuals to set aside outdated concepts of leadership and anoint themselves pathfinders.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
When Everyone Leads will soon take its place among the pantheon of Bard Press success stories.
