“I had the pleasure and honor to work with Amy for a few years and personally witness her leadership style. While reading her book I was smiling and reminiscing on the many moments I observed her putting these practices in place. She was able to make others feel valued and understood because she was always asking great questions and creating space for dialogue. Amy is a natural leader and a great communicator. I encourage you to read and apply what she is sharing in this book. You will grow tremendously as a leader.”

“Another leadership book” this is not!  Amy Chambers has produced a tour de force of insight that any aspiring leader can implement immediately and garner results quickly.  Highly readable and written in a conversational tone, the book is a delightful contribution to the leadership literature because it is not merely descriptive of what leadership is, but it is prescriptive on how aspiring leaders can lead effectively.  Filled with realistic examples and brimming with encouragement, Chambers shows the reader how to leave behind your tired, old notions about leadership and shoot for the stars in bold new ways.  A command performance.  Bravo!

Early in her career, Amy had a boss who demanded she come to work while terribly sick with food poisoning, another boss who raised an eyebrow at her decision to take time off work to attend her grandmother’s funeral, and yet another boss who encouraged the team to behave unethically, lie, and fudge numbers. Eventually, Amy had an emotional breakdown due to the stress that she felt while working in these environments, and while taking a few months off from work to recover, Amy noticed that many others had similar stories of toxic bosses who not only didn’t coach or develop their people, but instead ignored or mistreated their people. She began to demand better leadership from subsequent bosses, and decided to go into leadership herself so that she could deliver an exceptional environment for others.

During the last 2 decades, Amy has held leadership roles at 6 different companies, as well as served in leadership roles on numerous boards. She consistently observed leadership in those organizations around her, and observed that some individuals at work were consistently happy, motivated, engaged, fiercely loyal, and regularly exceeded their results. She also noticed employees who weren’t any of these things. Then, she noticed a pattern: it always came down to the same one thing: LEADERSHIP.

Terrific and connected teams that were putting up terrific results always did so at the hands of great leadership. Unhappy teams that struggled to meet goals and deliver on results always suffered from a lack of great leadership. Amy observed that much of corporate America is experiencing a leadership crisis. It became Amy’s life work to truly understand the consistent and specific things that exceptional leaders truly DO on a daily basis; what makes them different than all the rest.

After much research and observation, Amy has narrowed the behaviors of exceptional leaders down to 7 practices that she called the 7 V.I.R.T.U.E.S. Whether you’re newly promoted into your first leadership role, a seasoned middle-manager, or an executive- if you’re a leader looking to achieve breakthrough performance- this book is for you. It will forever change how you view leadership. Not only does Amy share her 7-pracitce leadership framework, she shares her story as both a student and practitioner of leadership over the last 20 years. It’s a raw account of all the mistakes, failures, and successes Amy has witnessed in leadership over the years- both her own, and those around her. You’ll love the stories, and the people in them.

The 7 V.I.R.T.U.E.S of Leadership will transform how you engage, empower, and motivate people and help you to create consistent and sustainable results. It will provide the answers to your frustrations and challenges in leading a team.

For anyone looking to leave a legacy and change the lives of those around them- this book is a MUST-READ.
