RICHMOND, Va., June 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Bestselling author Sam Parker takes on mainstream leadership approaches in his just published book, Lead [simply]™. "It's time to wake up and start focusing on the real things that make a great leader," states Sam Parker

In a read that comes in under 30-minutes, he presents a simple framework that can be acted on immediately.  "Who has time to read a complicated matrix or mystery parable outlined in a thousand page book?" asks Parker. "It comes down to three simple things; Model. Connect. Involve."

The book outlines specific ideas on how to model the behavior you want to see, connect with the people you lead, and involve them as much as possible. "That's it," explains Parker. "That's your framework for leadership – your simple, day-to-day, in-the-trenches formula for creating that special team of people that does important and meaningful work...that cares to make things better...continually, every day."

A believer in the power of the little things, Mr. Parker's bestselling book, 212 the extra degree® has sold over a million copies around the world. He hopes Lead [simply] will help drive home the message that the simple things can have the biggest impact on making things better. "It's time for those in a leadership role to own the personal leadership accountability that leads to great results," states Sam. "Life is short. We're not here to fill or kill time."

The book is available online through GiveMore.com at www.GiveMore.com/LeadSimply.
