Praise for Leadership by Choice

"Leadership is not just about what you do but what you can inspire, encourage, and empower others to do. This is why I encourage you to read Eric′s book. It′s a road map for making the right choices to lead more powerfully and effectively!"

Jon Gordon, bestselling author of The Energy Bus and Soup

"If your aim as a leader is to be more effective, influence and persuade others, and get better results in your position, this book will show you the way."

Brian Tracy, author of How the Best Leaders Lead

"Leadership, as Eric Papp points out, is always a choice. And that choice begins within, getting in touch with who you are, what you care about, and what you are willing to do. Make that choice to lead, AND read this book because it is full of wisdom (which is practical advice based upon experience). No matter where you are in your leadership journey, you′ll find some good ideas in this book that can make you an even better leader."

Barry Z. Posner, PhD, Accolti Professor of Leadership, Santa Clara University; coauthor of The Leadership Challenge, Credibility, and The Truth About Leadership

"If you have ever thought about leadership or consider yourself a leader, Leadership by Choice is a must–read. Eric does a great job at combining entertaining stories with practical applications you can use professionally and personally."

Jack Canfield, coauthor of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series and The Success Principles

"There are nuggets of fresh, practical wisdom in this book that can make you a better leader written by a guy in the trenches a trainer who has worked with thousands of managers."

Adrian Gostick, New York Times bestselling author of All In: How the Best Managers Create a Culture of Belief and Drive Big Results
