"Mark's latest book Staring Down The Wolf is one of the best and most genuine books on leadership perspectives that I have read. His ability to relate his own trials and tribulations in successes and failures in his own leadership opportunities provide an outstanding perspective on what true leadership really is. In my current role, I spend every waking moment helping young men and women through a rigorous leadership journey, and every single facet of this book speaks to what people need to know about leadership and building winning teams. It reinforces everything that good leaders need and should know about being the best leader you can. His seven commitments provide an exceptional roadmap for every leader to set the conditions for success, regardless of what organization they are leading.
