Publisher's Summary

Millions of business professionals aspire to become effective leaders. But for hardworking, growth-oriented top performers who are always looking to improve and for rigorous thinkers who are never quite satisfied with the status quo, the true goal is the lifelong pursuit of excellence.

Leadership advisor Ryan Hawk has interviewed hundreds of the most productive achievers in the world on his acclaimed podcast, The Learning Leader Show, to discover the best practices for pursuing and sustaining excellence. He found a pattern of uncommon behaviors that set these stellar individuals apart. By following their examples, you will learn how to: commit to yourself and the process - and build purpose, focus, and discipline; develop resilience to face new challenges - and find inspiration for the long haul; seek guidance - and lead others to new heights; meet the moment - and make the most of every opportunity to excel; and create a trusted group of advisors - and become a lifelong learner. Packed with specific actions to take, experiments to run, and tools to analyze what works best for you, this uncompromisingly practical guide will inspire, challenge, support, and empower you to become your very best. Put mindsets into action and turn behaviors into habits with The Pursuit of Excellence.

A Renaissance of Dismissed and Forgotten Principle

The culture of 2022 seems to have lost its true potential through instant gratification and selfishness. Ryan reminds us of classical truths and principles that will help guide us back towards cultural decency. This book belongs in the top shelf of everyone's library.

The Pursuit of Excellence

Ryan Hawk’s “The Pursuit of Excellence” was well-narrated and intriguing. Thank you for the stories and insights of some of the top leaders. I felt like I got a cheat sheet into leadership and will use in my own leadership positions.
