In his book, The Leader's Pyramid, Joseph Garcia provides a leadership tool that is both easy to remember and easy to apply to most management situations. Garcia offers proven leadership success based on a challenging military career and while serving as a CFO for a national nonprofit and most recently as the "Katrina CFO" for FEMA in New Orleans for three years. Garcia's Leader's Pyramid tool has allowed him to do his part to meet extraordinary mission requirements in extraordinary places. The Leader's Pyramid is built and grounded on proven principles and is valuable to all types of leaders -- experienced manager or newly promoted supervisor. Joseph blends his "walked in a leader's shoes" perspective with extensive research and academic principles. He taught a Leadership course at the Air Force Academy and received his Executive Masters in Leadership from Georgetown University. His desired outcome for his readers is a balanced and consistent approach to leadership. Using the Leader's Pyramid construct has allowed Joseph to be consistent in how he reaches decisions, especially tough ones involving people concerns, because he follows the same decision-making process. At the same time, he has gained the proper balance in his leadership focus and actions since his Leader's Pyramid allocates a 60/30/10 percentage mix for the Mission, People, and Ego factors respectively. Proof of Garcia's "recipe for success" includes many organizational and individual awards, including the "Male Boss of the Year" through the Federal Women's Awards Program. Joseph builds the Leader's Pyramid with his readers one block at a time, using his wealth of personal experiences along with illustrating scenarios that helps explain and reinforce the Mission, People, and Ego components. Garcia even uses the Leader's Pyramid to advocate how to become a better spouse, parent, and well-rounded individual. Finally, his "pyramid maintenance tips" promote continuous professional and personal development. In short, Garcia takes his readers on an enjoyable learning journey throughout The Leader's Pyramid.

After he is welcomed by both the gorilla community and Gregory, their wise silverback leader, Charles begins observing, re?ecting, and learning not only from the gorillas, but also from the events taking place around him. While discovering how to lead more deliberately, demonstrate accountability, and ask the right questions, Charles encounters a branch chief, pumps wood at the fitness center, and learns how a neighboring tribe of elephants managed to partner with the gorilla community.

Krone der Schöpfung? Vor 100 000 Jahren war der Homo sapiens noch ein unbedeutendes Tier, das unauffällig in einem abgelegenen Winkel des afrikanischen Kontinents lebte. Unsere Vorfahren teilten sich den Planeten mit mindestens fünf weiteren menschlichen Spezies, und die Rolle, die sie im Ökosystem spielten, war nicht größer als die von Gorillas, Libellen oder Quallen. Vor 70 000 Jahren dann vollzog sich ein mysteriöser und rascher Wandel mit dem Homo sapiens, und es war vor allem die Beschaffenheit seines Gehirns, die ihn zum Herren des Planeten und zum Schrecken des Ökosystems werden ließ. Bis heute hat sich diese Vorherrschaft stetig zugespitzt: Der Mensch hat die Fähigkeit zu schöpferischem und zu zerstörerischem Handeln wie kein anderes Lebewesen. Anschaulich, unterhaltsam und stellenweise hochkomisch zeichnet Yuval Harari die Geschichte des Menschen nach und zeigt alle großen, aber auch alle ambivalenten Momente unserer Menschwerdung.
