"I have been a Lance Secretan fan and follower since we first met in 2010. Since then, I have read his books, learned from him, teamed up with him, and I have enjoyed so much the way he inspires others around him. 'The Bellwether Effect' is not just a great book for leaders who seek to inspire and become better partners with their colleagues, but it has also helped me to think about myself and the change I want to help achieve in Microsoft and the world. "

Cesar Cernuda, President, Microsoft, Latin America

"'The Bellwether Effect' not only provides terrific practical advice for leaders in rethinking routine, it also challenges leaders to be courageous in evolving the way they lead and manage teams. Like all previous generations of workers, today’s workforce is looking for leaders who inspire and teach, and for organizations that serve a bigger purpose beyond shareholder returns. This book is an insightful read that shows how each of us can be a force for change in work and life."

Bruce D. Broussard, President & CEO, Humana Inc.

Thank you, Lance, for your wisdom, which will enable leaders to bring about positive change within our corporations, communities, and the world.

The Bellwether Effect

The insights Lance brings to corporate culture and management are always unique, refreshing, and frequently uncomfortable for leaders to hear. This book is no exception. His list of eight ineffective things companies do could certainly be expanded, but these are right on point. Plenty of “ineffective” around. Makes you think. Michael B. McCallister, Retired Chairman and CEO Humana Learn more

One – The Art and Practice of Conscious Leadership

This little book is a bounty of inspiring messages and big ideas. It opens with some critical thinking about the separateness we often experience in an otherwise connected world, and it shows how a powerful desire for oneness is emerging (with some surprising conclusions about the role of technology in this process). Kirk C. Hoessle President of Alaska Wildland Adventures Learn more

Inspire! – What Great Leaders Do

Understanding the difference between “motivation” and “inspiration” can lead to a dramatic breakthrough for anyone in any kind of leadership role. After reading Secretan’s beautiful, yet practical book on the subject, I know I’ll never be the same. Despite all the training, seminars, mentoring, and observation of great leaders, I didn’t know the difference and I suspect most CEO’s don’t either.
