The 9 Secrets of Marine Corps Leadership You Must Know to Win in Business
By Wally Adamchik

No Yelling named one of the Best Business Books for Summer 2007 by Entrepreneur Magazine....

US Marines are known and respected the world over for their leadership ability. How do they do it? What do they know that enables them to be such successful leaders on active duty and then in the civilian sector? This book reveals the nine essential behaviors that make up the foundation of leadership. The experiences shared in over one hundred interviews with current and former Marines illustrate the importance of balancing the elements of influence and control. Each chapter is loaded with examples of what this leadership looks like, and how to do it in the trenches, on the shop floor, and in the office. While other books talk about having a strategy, NO YELLING shows you how to execute the strategy and accomplish the mission with your people.

"I have attended quite a few leadership seminars, and have tried to gather and relate things from each of them, but your hit all 3 of us with material that relates and for myself commands an internal level of accountability and responsibility in what I do at our company. "
