I am reading Common Sense Wisdom Vol.2 for a third time and wanted to express my gratitude and appreciation.
This book is clearly indispensable on my journey to improve my leadership capabilities and my ability to evolve as a husband, father, friend, colleague, partner and leader.
Thank you very much,
The Unwritten Resume is a great follow-on from Common Sense Wisdom Volume I. Pepper has the gift of being able to translate a lot of wisdom into a short practical guide for the busy executive. Invaluable!
Pepper de Callier offers enlightenment and wisdom, but above all he encourages, nudges us along, and gets us to a better place. He tells us it is okay to believe in ourselves and, very importantly, he epitomizes the term 'mentor'.
Knowing Pepper is a rare gift that happened to me 2 years ago; Pepper has become a genuine inspiration, a guide and a true friend for me. He made a difference in my life not because he told me what to do but to show me the way to discover my leadership capabilities and soft power skills. His book, Common Sense Wisdom is my companion wherever I go and I keep reading it over and over again.
Inteligence, honesty, passion, experience, wisdom, humanity, guidance, humility, focus...that's Pepper de Callier. Let him inspire you the same way as he always inspires me.
In order for a leader to bring out the best in others they must first commit to undertaking the journey to bring out the the best in themselves. Pepper’s common sense, practical, pragmatic and balanced approach has helped me on numerous occasions to focus on the right things for my personal journey. Now, he has chosen to share this approach in his books.
Pepper's unique life-journey from Indiana farm boy, barber, entrepreneur, publisher, search firm executive for boardrooms worldwide, writer and executive coach has given him a view of life from all angles. The combination of his work ethic, compassion, love, and common sense understanding of his fellow man are the foundation of his books. In this book and in person, Pepper reminds us of the importance of creating a human-link with those who look to us for leadership.
Pepper has an extremely unique ability of helping people understand their strengths and weaknesses and then effectively and easily educating them on how to use this knowledge and understanding to reach their full potential not only in careers, but personal lives, too.
When you collaborate with Pepper or read his books, you will understand why his recommendations are so effective: they are not a product of theory or imagination; they are based on his many years’ of experience. Pepper helps one realize that major changes are possible, but for them to be sustainable they must be based on self-awareness, a desire to grow, and common sense.
The Global challenges of the 21st century require a very different set of leadership skills for leaders at all levels, most of which are not taught in universities or MBA courses. Pepper de Callier’s excellent book will help you to fill this vital understanding- gap with a clear understanding of one of the most powerful tools at your disposal—your Unwritten Resume. Common Sense Wisdom Volume II: The Unwritten Resume is must reading for those who want to succeed in the 21st century.
