Colin Powell’s New Book – “It Worked for Me”

Colin Powell has written a new book that reveals lessons that shaped his life and career.  The book is titled, It Worked for Me.


The book is a collection of lessons and personal anecdotes that drove and guided the four-star general and former Secretary of State’s legendary career in public service.


Colin Powell is a world-class leader, speaker and American patriot.  He is one of the best, and most sought-after speakers in the world.  His grasp and knowledge of world affairs and world leaders is nothing less than amazing.


A number of years ago, I had the unique opportunity to spend 30 minutes one-on-one with Colin Powell.  No one else was in the room, just the General and myself.  It was one of the most memorable experiences of my life!  The man has “command presence” like no one I have ever met.  And yet he is kind, thoughtful, personable, and he listens!


The publisher of the new book called Mr. Powell “a truly inspirational figure.  Decades of public service have proven him to be an unparalleled leader, a man who commands respect in many fields.  His remarkable book distills his wisdom into memorable anecdotes and lessons, drawing from his life and career.”


The book will be available May 22 wherever best selling books are sold.  Buy the book and learn from a world-class leader.  Learn from a man who has earned the respect and admiration of millions of people around the world.  Learn from a man who clearly understands and practices Leadership Excellence!


If “it worked for Colin Powell,” I am guessing that, “it will work for you and me!”
