In both the study and practice of leadership, there are common leadership principles, or tools if you will, that apply to leaders and aspiring leaders at all levels and across all walks of life, and they are not difficult concepts to grasp or put into practice, but really common sense.  They apply just as much to the shift supervisor at a fast food restaurant as they do to the chief executive officer of a multi-billion-dollar company.  The captain of a high school football team or the head coach of a NBA franchise can use these same tools, just as a captain flight commander or company commander or the commanding general of a warfighting command could use them.  The lessons in this book have the potential to inspire and motivate local city councilmen or councilwomen, or even elected federal officials in any nation throughout the world.  That is what this book is about—leadership lessons and tools that any inspired individual can use to become a leader, or become a better leader.
