Leadership In The New Normal

Leadership in the New Normal is a short course on how to be an effective leader in the 21st century. It describes modern leadership principles and techniques and illustrates them with stories from the author’s vast life experiences, mostly as a military leader. The book is geared to both leaders and those who aspire to be leaders in today’s world – in the fields of business, government, religion, military, academia, etc. The author, Lt. General Russel Honoré (U.S. Army, retired), emerged as a national hero and one of the U.S.’s best-known military leaders in 2005 after spearheading the Task Force responsible for the massive search-and-rescue mission and the restoration of order in New Orleans and the Mississippi Gulf Coast following Hurricane Katrina

Nods of approval for Gen. Russel Honoré’s New Book

Leadership in the New Normal

“I met General Honoré when most of America did, when he marched onto the scene and took control of a rapidly deteriorating post-Katrina New Orleans. He was the leader America needed: brave, disciplined, decisive and ready to ignore convention to get the job done. This book shows how to emulate his brand of leadership in whatever we do.”

— Ali Velshi, CNN Anchor & Chief Business Correspondent

“I had forgotten how much more famous retired Generals know about the future of civilization than diplomats, academics and politicians, and how much more they know about leadership development than many corporations and CEOs.”

— Jim Clifton, Chairman and CEO, The Gallup Organization

“Like Andrew Jackson, Gen. Honoré rode in to save New Orleans at a time of dire need. In this book he looks at the leadership lessons he learned from Hurricane Katrina and his years of service in the Army. He explains how we have to adopt new ways of communicating and commanding in a global era he calls the ‘New Normal.’”

— Walter Isaacson, President of the Aspen Institute
