Testimonials about Big-Hearted Leadership from Fellow Leaders
“I’m excited and honored to recommend <em>Big-Hearted Leadership</em> to you. It’ll give you a basic form and technique for effective leadership. And it’ll inspire you to be a Big-Hearted Leader yourself. It’ll inspire you to care—about success and about people.”
“Donn’s hope—and I think he’s successful—is to give you a book that shows you how to be effective and caring at the same time. I’m happy to call Donn Sorensen a friend and colleague. I’m also happy to recommend this fine book, which shows that you can have the best of both worlds as a leader. You can be a caring, Big-Hearted Leader, because it is the right thing to do. And it’s good for business.”
“There is no better title for a book written by Donn Sorensen than <em>Big-Hearted Leadership</em>. From the time we both lived and worked in Springfield, Missouri to now, I have found him to be someone who possesses that rare combination of competency and compassion. Whether he’s presenting to his board of directors or playing golf to benefit kids in need, Donn knows how to be successful—and how to show people he cares. If you want to learn how a big heart and good business go hand-in-hand, read this book!”
“When Donn Sorensen approached me about supporting his charity, he wanted far more than my financial resources and business skills. He wanted my active involvement and—above all—a real investment of my heart and soul into the cause. That’s how Donn approaches his work as an executive. It’s the approach you’ll find in this book—and it’s effective and inspiring.”
I agree with Donn Sorensen: The best leaders possess a rare combination of effectiveness and empathy. They are good at what they do and committed to the good of people. In the same way, the best books provoke deep thought and provide practical steps to take action. Big-Hearted Leadership is exactly that kind of book.
“Ever since I founded our charity Care To Learn, Donn has been there. I first knew him as the businessman; as a leader, he is a visionary. He knows how to get things done and make things happen. In the midst of that success, I am more impressed with my friend who wakes up every day wanting to help people. Too many influential people get involved in charity work because they feel some sort of societal pressure or moral obligation. Not Donn; he lives it. He’s passionate about changing lives and when he really believes in a cause, he is all in! To borrow the phrase he uses in Big-Hearted Leadership, he is an incredible “force for good.”
