You may have noticed that many of our hero profiles have been removed from our blog. This is because they are now included in our new book entitled Heroic Leadership. This is our second book on heroes, and it offers a new conceptual framework for understanding heroes. It also integrates theories of leadership with theories of heroism.
Our new book includes one-hundred hero profiles that at one time filled the pages of this heroes blog. It pained us to remove those hero profiles but fortunately we still have plenty of content with plenty more on the way!
We love blogging about your heroes, so please do suggest some names for us to profile, or issues for us to address in commentary pieces. In the mean time, thanks so much for visiting us and for supporting today’s heroes.
