Triple Crown Leadership: The Book

This website is for leaders seeking a better way to lead

Welcome to a brand new world of leadership.

Here you will find transformational leadership practices for building “excellent, ethical, and enduring” organizations, the triple crown of leadership. We invite you to help us build a better brand of leadership. Implement our five transformational leadership practices in your organization. You’ll see the results with the engagement of your colleagues and on your bottom line.

If you already are an established leader, we will help you to achieve new levels of breakthrough performance. If you don’t have formal leadership authority, we will show you how to unleash your latent leader. Whatever formal leadership authority you may or may not have, you must lead yourself first.

Bob Vanourek and Gregg Vanourek are the co-authors of Triple Crown Leadership. Bob and Gregg are each available as a motivational guest speakers and leadership workshop facilitators. They will share new insights about leadership, teambuilding, and how shared values, vision, and purpose play a critical role in any organization. Both of them have been a keynote speaker, guest speaker, and leadership workshop facilitator for top corporations, associations, non-profits, and other organizations around the world.

Here you’ll find insights and tools from Triple Crown Leadership: Building Excellent, Ethical, and Enduring Organizations (winner of the 2013 International Book Awards, business: general).
