Leadership

A recent reader review of Leadership: Texas Hold ‘em Style: 

Raymond Foster has demonstrated his knowledge of leadership very thoroughly in this book. Coming from the LAPD, he draws upon his experience as a mid-level manager by using humor and anecdotes so aspiring supervisors and managers can develop their individual skills. I am a retired police captin from Newark, NJ and wish I had the book during the promotional testing process. Now, I am using the book in my consulting practice–very relevant, very practical and an easy read!” 

About the book

Using poker as analogy for leadership, Captain Andrew Harvey, CPD (ret.), Ed.D. and Lieutenant Raymond Foster, LAPD (ret.), MPA found the right mix of practical experience and academic credentials to write a definitive book for leaders. Working together, Harvey and Foster have written Leadership: Texas Hold em Style. Most often leaders find they are given a set of resources people, equipment, funds, experience and a mission. As Foster noted, “You’re dealt a certain hand. How you play that hand as a leader determines your success.”  

  • More than a book: A fun and entertaining journey through leadership that includes an interactive website to supplement knowledge gained from the book.
  • Proven and Tested: Not an academic approach to leadership, but rather a road-tested guide that has been developed through 50-years of author experience.
  • High Impact: Through the use of perspective, reflection, and knowledge, provides information that turns leadership potential into leadership practice.
  • Ease of Application: Theory is reinforced with real-life experience, which results in accessible and practical tools leaders can put to use immediately.
  • High Road Approach: Personal character and ethical beliefs are woven into each leadership approach, so leaders do the right thing for the right reasons.
  • Uses Game of Poker:  Rather than a dry approach that is all fact and no flavor, the game of poker is used as a lens through which to view leadership concepts.
