Sterken has gifted us all an inspiring read filled with valuable lessons. Bill is a true statesman who has always recognized the importance of governing for the greater good of all Texans. He has brought people together to solve complex issues facing our state government and worked with members based on their ability, rather than whether they had an "R" or a "D" behind their name. The humility and type of leadership he demonstrated during his years as a senator and Lt. Governor are sorely needed across our nation today.
He is, without a doubt, one of the greatest public servants in Texas' history. Core of Conviction.

Becoming a Leader is Becoming Yourself by Russ Moxley People yearn for leaders who are authentic, who show their own face and not a game face, who find and use their voice in appropriate ways and act with a tangible sense of integrity. Those who engage in the process of leadership want to do so as our true self. We are continually moving in and out of authenticity. We are present one moment and absent the next. There is no formula for being integral and authentic.
Becoming and being ourselves requires confidence and courage. Drawing on his 40 years in leadership training, Russ Moxley discusses the things we can do along the way—recognizing our strengths and limitations, speaking truth to power, trusting our companions—as we strive to fulfill our leadership potential.
