Powerful leadership lessons from a trailblazing female colonel in the U.S. Army. When Jill Morgenthaler arrived at boot camp in 1975 as part of the inaugural class of women in the Army, she was one of 83 female cadets... on a base of 50,000 men. So she knows a thing or two about conquering obstacles. In The Courage to Take Command, Colonel Morgenthaler provides invaluable leadership lessons drawn from her three decades of military service - from her first days in ROTC to combat in some of the world´s most dangerous war zones. Ironically, the military taught her that leadership isn´t about ´´command and control´´. Rather, it requires a fine balance of reason and emotion, distance and familiarity, hard and soft power. Learn how to lead your team to success by: Being true to your vision - but being open to new ideas Tackling obstacles head-on - but using finesse to arrive at solutions Focusing on the mission - while protecting your people Projecting strong leadership presence - but serving every member of your team, especially the weakest and most vulnerable Maintaining team spirit - but refusing to tolerate mediocrity Accepting and embracing your fears - but never letting them control you Always having a plan - but also trusting your gut Expressing a healthy self-confidence - with a side of humility It took both a spine of steel and a smart sense of people for Morgenthaler to get where she did. Now she draws on the wisdom garnered from her experience to help you develop an authentic brand of leadership and succeed at all levels of any organization. The Courage to Take Command provides the strategies and tactics you need to follow through with your leadership vision, inspire your team, and execute your mission - even when the odds may seem overwhelming. 1.

Funny stories. Make-you-cry stories. All of them show us something about ourselves and our savior we can never forget. Kids have a way of saying things adults would never say and revealing profound - even biblical - truths in their unfiltered, unedited commentary on the world. In this inspiring audiobook, Jon Guager shares important lessons he learned about God by observing kids. Like the story of Joslynn’s tumble. When Joslynn was camping, she falls down the camper’s stairs to the horror of her watching grandparents. But when she stands up and declares, ´´Let’s try that again´´, Jon Gauger (Grandpa) notices how even though Joslynn had failed at something, she was kissed, hugged, and comforted by her family. Gauger reminds us that this is how God responds to us when we seemed to have failed ´´big time´´. Each anecdote teaches the Christian a familiar truth through a less familiar vehicle, making this giftable audiobook fresh and fun. PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jon Gauger.

American hero Louis Zamperini shares his wisdom, values, lessons, secrets, and other insights gleaned from his remarkable experiences in this powerful and inspiring book. Louis Zamperini´s struggle to survive the unimaginable - brought to life in his autobiography Devil at My Heels and in Laura Hillenbrand´s number one New York Times best-seller and its film adaptation, Unbroken - elevated him to his rightful place among our country´s greatest heroes. Now, Zamperini reveals the wisdom he learned along his incredible journey. Faced with one misfortune after another - a plane crash, the shark-filled waters of the Pacific, a brutal Japanese prisoner of war camp - Zamperini could have given up a thousand times. Instead, he chose to see every hardship as a challenge that he was determined to overcome. Enduring the perils of World War II, Zamperini continued to find adventure at every turn - from crashing weddings to facing down Frank Sinatra in a fight to getting mixed up in a bank robbery. Until his death at 97 he remained undaunted; happy, sharp-minded, and healthy, and continued to engage life to its fullest. In Don´t Give Up, Don’t Give In, he offers never-before told tales that embody his simple, yet essential secrets of success: how his relationship with God, his ever-positive attitude, his constant pursuit of accomplishment - and a healthy dose of mischief - have helped him lead a long and fulfilled life, lessons we can all use to transform our own. 1.
