“Aspiring leaders will gain much from reading this book”
Colonel Tim Collins
“Chris does a masterful job of distilling the intricacies of leadership down to a
critical truth: “There isn’t good or bad leadership…You are leading or you are
not.” This important truth forces people to look at their approach to leadership
in a very honest light. He also encourages everyone to view themselves as a
potential leader because, as he reminds us, you do not have to be the best at
any particular skill to excel as a leader. Most importantly, Chris reminds us
that the evolution of our world has led us to a place where the keys to leadership
in business as well as the military include flexibility, the freedom to maneuver,
and mutual trust between leader and followers.”

“Leadership has never been about the rank, the position you hold, the title you
wear, time in grade, where you are in line, nor where you sit on the totem pole.
It is always about the example you set. When you set an example for
others to follow, people take notice. And you have made a difference.
Chris shares with you his extensive experience from the British military to clearly
emphasize the responsibility we all have to be great leaders for those around us.
‘The Leadership Secret’ is an excellent go-to for the person who cares
about developing a style of leadership that affects everyone, in all walks of life,
for all the right reasons.”

“A fresh view on the importance and key aspects of leadership. Statements are
brought to life by contemporary examples, often with a humorous touch, which
makes the book even more enjoyable to read. The linking of military and
business experience with own leadership skills and knowledge provides a solid
guide for what leadership is and should be about.”
