This new model of human interaction has been chosen by Google to train the entire company worldwide (30,000 employees), is the #1 book for your career chosen by The Wall Street Journal's website, and is labeled 'phenomenal' by Lawyers' Weekly and 'brilliant' by Liza Oz of the Oprah network. Based on more than 20 years of research and practice among 30,000 people in 45 countries, Getting More concludes that finding and valuing the other party's emotions and perceptions creates far more value than the conventional wisdom of power and logic. It is intended to provide better agreements for everyone no matter what they negotiate - from jobs to kids to billion dollar deals to shopping. The book, a New York Times bestseller and #1 Wall Street Journal business best seller, is based on Professor Stuart Diamond's award-winning course at the Wharton Business School, where the course has been the most popular over 13 years. It challenges the conventional wisdom on every page, from 'win-win' to BATNA to rationality to the use of power. Companies have made billions of dollars so far using his new model and parents have gotten their 4-year-olds to willingly brush their teeth and go to bed. Prof. Diamond draws from his experience as a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist at The New York Times, Harvard-trained attorney, Wharton MBA, U.N. Consultant in many countries and manager and executive in many sectors, including technology, agriculture, medical services, finance, energy and aviation. 'The ROI from reading Getting More will make it the best investment you make this year,' says Rhys Dekle, the business development head of the Microsoft Games division, which produces X-Box. He added that the book was his team's best investment of the year too. The model was also used to quickly solve the 2008 Hollywood Writer's Strike. The advice is addressed through the insightful stories of more than 400 people who have used Prof. Diamond's tools with great success: A 20% savings on an item already on sale. An extra $300 million profit in a business. A woman from India getting out of her own arranged marriage. Better relationships with the family, including teenagers. Raises at work. Better jobs. Dealing with emotional situations. Meeting one's goals. Finding better things to trade. Solving cultural and political problems, sports conflicts, and ordinary arguments. The book is intended to be used in any situation. The most common response is 'life changing', beginning on page one. 'The most inspirational book I have read this year' said David Simon, an attorney in San Francisco, CA. 'This book can change the world,' says Craig Silverman, Investment Advisor, Long Island, NY

The Heart of Leadership: Becoming a Leader Peop...

“The most important leadership tool you have is not your education, your experience, or your know-how. It’s your heart. In this book, Mark provides a clear prescription for using yours to become the kind of leader people want to follow.” —Michael Hyatt, New York Times bestselling author and former CEO, Thomas Nelson Inc. “Mark once again demonstrates the power of a simple story well told. The Heart of Leadership will serve leaders around the world for decades to come.” —Dr. Henry Cloud, leadership consultant, psychologist, and bestselling author of Boundaries and Necessary Endings “ The Heart of Leadership is a delightfully surprising read. Mark Miller’s wisdom shines in his ability to convey profound truths simply and clearly. This book propels leadership beyond strategies and techniques to its most authentic form—who you are.” —Dan Rockwell, author and owner of the Leadership Freak blog, consultant, and pastor “Mark Miller has crafted a masterwork. Too many books on leadership are about selfishly getting ahead. This book addresses the leader’s heart. By addressing the heart, you do get ahead, but it’s a more satisfying journey.” —Nancy Duarte, author of Resonate and CEO, Duarte Designs “This book will help you reach your leadership potential, espousing good principles that most learn only through the school of hard knocks—and many never learn at all.” —Ron Wallace, former President, UPS International “Mark Miller has done it again! Another outstanding book—this time on the most important aspect of leadership: who you are as a leader. If you focus only on skills, you are ignoring 90 percent of what makes a great leader. —Jesse Lyn Stoner, coauthor of the international bestseller Full Steam Ahead! “ The Heart of Leadership addresses the primary stumbling block for leaders – themselves!   If you want to improve how you lead others, you must first improve how you lead yourself. This great little book shows you how. —Daniel S. Harkavy, CEO and Executive Coach, Building Champions, Inc. ' The Heart of Leadership extends and deepens the bestselling leadership models pioneered by Mark Miller.  This book is clear, compelling, and of real practical value. Keep it on hand  -- a small investment of time will yield a lifetime of dividends, in life as well as career.  —Jeff Rosensweig, Associate Professor of International Business and Finance and Director of Emory University’s Goizueta Business School and Global Perspectives Program ‘There's a difference between potential leaders with raw talent and great leaders with real influence. Mark's book reveals the foundational difference -- it's all about leadership character.” —Tony Morgan, author, Chief Strategic Officer and founder of TonyMorganLive.com “Mark Miller’s The Heart of Leadership immediately creates a place for personal discovery. As I read each page, I was no longer thinking of  “Blake” the main character, but myself. Blake’s journey of discovery became my own. This is about the “life” of leadership and how it reaches within and without having profound and long-lasting impact. It’s about being unselfishly driven and highly motivated. It is about how others within the workplace and within our lives benefit from our personal resolve to lead from the perspective that others matter.” —Clifton L. Taulbert, Author of Eight Habits of the Heart and President, The Freemount Corporation/Building Community Institute “There are so many buzzwords in business that claim to be the answer to all leadership woes. The truth is that leadership is all about the people, and to have success with people, read The Heart of Leadership, and watch your leadership soar to a whole new level.” —Todd Nielsen, author and COO
