<p>Praise for THE COURAGE PLAYBOOK</p> <p>“Gus Lee and I worked together 15 years ago. He refined my leadership values to three words—character, integrity and courage. I actively use them today in all endeavors. Courage is rarely discussed, but it is the most crucial. America was built on courage! <i>The Courage Playbook</i> goes in depth into how to find, strengthen and use it. An important read for all leaders.” <p><b>—ROSS PEROT, J<small>R</small>., Chairman, Hillwood</b> <p>“This is an important read for all of us. <i>The Courage Playbook’s</i> practical tools serve any person and any enterprise when difficulties become routine and fear is the intuitive response to handling complicated life situations. Lee reminds us that courage is the first essential in life, for it impacts how we treat others, our work and the world, and how we fundamentally see ourselves and the future. Without courage, all is struggle.” <p><b>—AMY TAN, author, artist, composer</b> <p>“Gus expands courage far beyond overcoming fear to overcoming anger, being open and accepting, shedding hatred and excuses and strengthening moral fiber. <i>The Courage Playbook</i> is a user’s manual for life, personal, corporate, or in partnerships. The tools, tips, examples, and answers are here. <i>The Courage Playbook</i> is clear and easy-to-follow and is actually an action plan for a better world.” <p><B>—D<small>R</small>. CHARLOTTE M. FARMER, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, Underwriter Laboratories, Inc.</b> <p>“I couldn’t put down Gus Lee’s new book. It’s a gripping personal trainer for life. It’s warm, witty and wickedly simple, and its specific actions help us move forward with less pain. Unlike short half-life leader training, practicing a few key behaviors produces a courageous life. Its GOs, NOs and his revolutionary Unconditional Positive Respect and Highest Moral Action are breathtaking kicks in the pants to end biases we secretly protect. It’s my forever courage-whisperer nightstand book to empower my better angels, overcome demons of fear and break the grip of the past. This punchy playbook gave me real tools to handle difficult clients and situations, help my teenage daughter contend with unknowns, and address our crisis of us vs. them. He gives us clear steps to a more meaningful, connected, and loving life. All it takes is a little courage.” <p><b>—SARA YING ROUNSAVILLE, Founder, Rounsaville & Associates, Executive Coach, former VP of Public Affairs and Communications, The San Francisco Foundation</b>
