"Mark Miller's The Heart of Leadership immediately creates a place for personal discovery. As I read each page, I was no longer thinking of "Blake" the main character, but myself. Blake's journey of discovery became my own. This is about the "life" of leadership and how it reaches within and without having profound and long-lasting impact. It's about being unselfishly driven and highly motivated. It is about how others within the workplace and within our lives benefit from our personal resolve to lead from the perspective that others matter."
--Clifton L. Taulbert, Author of Eight Habits of the Heart and President, The Freemount Corporation/Building Community Institute
