Classic Management Philosophies for a New Generation of Leaders

For over 50 years “Lead the Field” has inspired established professional leaders and aspiring young scholars to pursue Earl Nightingale’s principles success into their business practice through creating and accomplishing their goals, while impacting and influencing change in others.

Readers will discover:

  • The power of words
  • The power of attitude
  • The power of goals
  • The power of commitment

Nightingale describes “success as a matter of following a common sense paradigm of rules and guidelines.”

Twelve chapters, twelve principles, and twelve exercises – a key to getting the most from your reading of “Lead the Field” is to invest an hour each day in completing and incorporating the results each exercise into your life action plans. I have already begun to include these exercises in my quiet morning contemplation hour.

I made a note of several of Nightingale’s definitive axioms: Purpose as volition to accomplish your goal. Our attitude can alter our mind. The idea that:  “We become what we think about,” and the concept that “When you accept responsibility for your attitude, you accept responsibility for your entire life.”

“Lead the Field” has inspired personal coaches, business consultants, and self-help authors in the formulation of their books, training curriculum, workshops, and seminars. A true classic.

A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review purposes. The opinions expressed are my own.
