Chicago, IL, July 30, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Outskirts Press, Inc. has published Linebacker in the Boardroom: Lessons in Life and Leadership by Marvin A. Russell. The author's most recent book to date is a 6 x 9 paperback in the business and economics leadership category and is available worldwide on book retailer websites such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Linebacker in the Boardroom is also available in a 6 x 9 hardback edition with jacket. The webpage at www.outskirtspress.com/linebackerintheboardroom was launched simultaneously with the book's publication.
This book is not a sports book, nor just a book about leadership, nor only about Russell’s time playing Notre Dame football. Linebacker in the Boardroom discusses the demand for excellence and accountability in all things we do. Russell talks about how those demands translate into lessons in our successes and failures in life.
This book has leadership at its foundation. It is a search for our leadership inspirations. It’s an examination of and a demand for personal and professional accountability, and shows how to search for individual opportunities to make a difference: what Russell calls Impact Zones. To help search for and define one’s Impact Zones, the author developed 3E Leadership: Essential, Exceptional, and Ethical Leadership™. It’s a model for behavioral competencies and tools to help transform a person into a high-performer.
On the field, in one’s cube, or in one’s office, on the factory shop floor, at a school desk, or in the boardroom, one can make an impact. Whether one views this book from a personal or professional perspective, whether one reads it as a member of a work team, a community-based organization, an athletic team, or religious group, whether one picks it up as the leader of a multi-billion-dollar company or as someone just starting out on a career journey, Russell’s thoughts and inspirations, successes and failures, philosophies and real-life experiences can and will have an impact on his readers.
Russell writes, “Welcome to the Impact Zone! Welcome to my world of 3E Leadership™! Become the Essential, Exceptional, and Ethical Leader!”
