My good friend and colleague, Bill Treasurer, is launching his new book with co-author John Havlik today!

The Leadership Killer: Reclaiming Humility in an Age of Arrogance aims to help aspiring, early-stage, and experienced leaders alike answer a critical question:

“How will I use my leadership power?”

Co-authored by globally renowned author and executive development trainer Bill Treasurer and retired U.S. Navy SEAL Captain John Havlik, this book unites civilian and military experiences to explore precisely why some good leaders go bad, so you can avoid their mistakes. With decades worth of insight drawn from leading elite military special operations teams, global companies and organizations, The Leadership Killer includes insightful stories and actionable strategies for becoming, and more importantly, staying, a more effective, confident and humble leader.

This book is perfect for individuals and groups navigating how to become better leaders. Whether you are a CEO or a manager in human resources, starting out in your career with a wish to hone your leadership skills, or are undergoing executive training for brand and nonprofit leadership, The Leadership Killer can help steer you in the right direction.

The Leadership Killer: Reclaiming Humility in an Age of Arrogance exposes hubris as the single most lethal leadership flaw. Being a good leader doesn’t require being a bad person, and if you know what to look out for, Treasurer and Havlik point out, you can keep your ego and hubris in check and become (and stay) a leader who is effective, successful, and good.

Today is launch day and if you'd like to purchase the book on Amazon you can click the link here!
