Hardcore Leadership: 11 Master Lessons from My Airborne Ranger Uncle’s “Final Jump”
Military service has long been viewed as the steadied model of leadership. Those who’ve answered that call, yesteryear to current times, from ‘old soldier’ to modern-day warrior, have carried on this institution’s ultimate mission to support and defend freedom.
Then what can we, as leaders, learn from this historical model for dealing with today’s mission challenges, uniquely gleaning lessons from the life of an ‘old soldier’? For the late retired Command Sergeant Major, Vietnam Vet, Ranger Hall of Fame inductee and the Honorable Harris L. Parker, his oldest niece and fellow army veteran Deborah L. Parker approves his timeless message of leadership. Ensuring that he has not faded away, she honors the achievements of her late uncle, lovingly known as Hardcore to his family, with these eleven powerful lessons for those who find themselves in charge in their work, community, or home. Reporting on her uncle’s service to his country and purpose, as well as in leadership positions for their native Virginia county of Sussex, Parker overlays his noted wisdom, courage and vision with practical strategies to start your own leadership campaign.
Weaving in take-aways from her career and personal experiences in leadership development through her company The DPJ Training Group, Parker, also a retired reserve Lieutenant Colonel, has put together a thought-provoking book packed with memorable teaching anecdotes. Inspiring and informative in saluting her uncle’s biographical legacy, she makes the case for us all in Hardcore’s words, to ‘press on.’

Diplomacy and Diamonds: My Wars from the Ballroom to the Battlefield, The Real-Life Texas Socialite Behind Charlie Wilson's War
Nancy Dorman-Hickson is the co-author of Joanne King Herring's memoir.

Jacket description about Herring and the book:

She's been dirt poor; she's been filthy rich. Rich was more fun. She married three times, divorced twice, found her true love, and lost him to cancer. At twenty-one, she was told she would soon die. She lived. Doctors said she'd never be able to have children. She had 'em. She's bargained with God, dictators, and Democrats. She's partied with princes, presidents, premiers, Barbara Walters, Anwar Sadat, Margaret Thatcher, Tom Hanks, and Francisco Franco...though not all at the same time. She captivated powerful men with her feminine charm, and then persuaded them toward unlikely political alliances through her formidable intelligence. She waltzed with Prince Philip in Buckingham Palace, dressed in men's clothes and smuggled herself in a barrel across the Pakistani border, threw a Roman-themed party so extravagant it was featured in Life magazine, and survived a Soviet gunship attack in the mountains of Afghanistan.

Joanne Herring, the Houston socialite portrayed by Julia Roberts in the film Charlie Wilson's War, is far more colorful, funny, and likable than any screenwriter could have guessed. The former Texas television anchor is known for her improbable fight with the mujihadeen against the former Soviet Union. But her full story--with all its God, guns, and Gucci glory--has never been told. Born in the man's world of Texas in a time when women had limited choices, Joanne Herring blazed a trail with allies as unlikely as Charlie Wilson, Pierre Cardin, and President Ronald Reagan...and in so doing forged new paths for women in Pakistan, Afghanistan, and America.

The New Rules of Fitness Marketing features interviews with 25 successful fitness professionals who are using a variety of marketing tactics to attract clients and build their fitness businesses.

Each of the 14 chapters is packed with innovative and actionable ideas. And because each deals with one marketing-related topic, you can flip around in search of new ideas and best practices in the areas that interest you most.

Although the standards are here, there’s also some you may not have thought about like podcasting, becoming a fitness brand ambassador, partnering beyond the usual health professionals and so much more!

You don’t have to use an idea exactly the way someone else did, either. That’s why most chapters begin with “Key Points” summary and end with “Make It Your Own” suggestions. Reading what others are doing can spark an idea on how to tailor it for your business and clients.

No matter what your business model, you will hear from someone you can relate to in this book.
