H3 Leadership

H3 Leadership: Be Humble. Stay Hungry. Always Hustle. [Book Review] (Thomas Nelson, 2015)

Most leadership books focus on the “how” of leadership—how to set goals, how to instill vision, how to be successful. But Brad Lomenick’s new book offers a more basic beginning.

The leader’s heart.

Starting with humility, H3 Leadership urges leaders to make character priority before competency, and the book centers on essential habits of great leaders. Habits are what we choose, not what we’re born with. These choices include self-discovery, openness, meekness, conviction, and living out one’s calling.

With character as a leader’s bedrock, Brad builds upon it with “hungry.” That is, a leader must develop an appetite for what’s next and a “student” mentality that continues to learn and love what you’re doing with a willingness to take risks. Finally, the how—”hustle.” Adding the practical habits of a commitment to excellence, perseverance, execution, team building, and succession.

Brad wraps the book and its principles around his own journey of taking a much-needed sabbatical—and how it refocused his life.

What a refreshing book! I enjoyed the challenge of leading from the heart and not just from the “how.”
