There are so many books for leaders out there about WHY, having a WHY and being purpose-driven. These many great books currently available to you all share the cool stories. The usual popular ones about Southwest Airlines, Proctor & Gamble, Virgin and Sir Richard Branson, Apple and Steve Jobs and many of the other “big name companies and leaders”. They all re-enforce the need for a WHY and how powerful it is for your organization. We get it already, but HOW do you do that?

The purpose of this book is to be a tool for you. It is all the HOW TO. How to become a purpose-driven leader. How to lead people on purpose. How to build the invincible culture. How to drive innovation from the inside out. How to engage your team. How to empower your team. How to inspire your team to new levels of performance and productivity. How to break-down the hierarchical structures. How to, how to, how to…

Can you imagine a world where every business leads on purpose first? That’s a future I see. That is why my goal is…

to create and inspire 90 million purpose-driven leaders 

That’s a rough estimate globally of leaders there are with disengaged teams. If people are disengaged and unhappy at work, they take that home. This impacts their family life, social life, mental and physical well-being and more.

Can you imagine how much of the world’s problems are due to unhappy, unfulfilled people not engaged in their life’s best work? Meaningful work? Work that is meaning full? Purpose-driven leadership is the answer.

Together we can create a ripple effect that can shift the consciousness of billions of people! With this book, we can change disengagement to engagement and give empowerment and inspiration to allow people to do their life’s best work. Imagine everyone going home from work feeling happy.     

We spend so much money seeking to make leadership better, yet disengagement rates are rising and the leadership skills gap is widening everywhere around the world. That’s why I believe leadership is in crisis mode; it is BROKEN.

Look at the statistics from global surveys like DDI (Development Dimensions International) Global Leadership Forecast 2014|2015 Back then it suggested that $50 billion dollars was spent on leadership development around the globe.

“Why is leader quality going nowhere fast? Apparently, because leadership development efforts have stalled, despite the fact that it is estimated that some $50 billion a year is being spent on developing leaders worldwide.”
- Barbara Kellerman – The End of Leadership

Some studies show that in the USA alone, they spend $15 billion! How can we be spending so much money on leadership development, yet employee engagement studies show there are more people disengaged and actively disengaged over the previous years? WTF is going on?

Capability gaps are increasing. Culture and engagement and leadership development have become urgent priorities. Apparently building leadership remains paramount (please insert face palm here). Clearly something is wrong!

It is time to lead different...



“In my role as CEO of the Australian Institute of Management WA, I come across new books on leadership on a daily basis. What makes this book different? It is a book on leadership built on the author’s lifetime of experiences of working with others, and inspiring others to lead well. The messages are simple, practical and actionable. Whether you are an aspirant leader, an experienced mid-level manager or even an executive, Simplified will “stop you in your tracks”, and compel you to reflect on all aspects of your ongoing development as a leader. Simplified will break down the barriers and remove the obstacles that you have had in your journey to becoming a purposeful leader.”
Professor Gary Martin FAIM FACE
CEO, Australian Institute of Management WA

"When I choose who to listen to, firstly and most importantly, it’s about credibility. As a practitioner, Dave actually lives what he talks and writes about. I was so drawn to the book not by just the message, but the ease in which I can take the message away. The well crafted use of diagrams, models, bold text and powerful quotes that are relevant and resonate so strongly with me add to the simplicity. I can read the book from beginning to end or pick it up, read 2-3 pages, and take something meaningful away and implement. Many leadership books focus on why, this one gives you the how to. Unlike many other authors who like to complicate, a major strength of Dave's book is in his ability to simplify."
Peter Thurin, Founder of Blackbelt in Excellence
Australia's leading authority on personal performance & author of 'Be The Best You Can Be'

"Dave Clare has developed the ultimate guide for the "inspired leader" that wishes to create a meaningful legacy. A must read for global leaders."
#whyguy Gerry Visca, Inspiring 1 Million Whys - Inspirational Speaker | Transformational Novelist | Publisher 

"Dave Clare speaks and writes in clear, simple to understand and heartfelt truth! Thus his book "SIMPLIFIED" could not come at a better time in our world. People are bombarded with news, information and constant headlines. I believe what many are yearning is authentic, truthful, clear and meaningful leadership! Dave in life and through his writings truly exudes the path and benefits of "Servant Leadership" and "Doing well by doing Good." This book is for anyone interested in becoming a leader or being an even better one than you are now! Pick up this book and dive into great insights, lessons and messages that are sure to stir your mind and most of all your heart!"
Stephen D. Rodgers Consultant, #1 Amazon best selling author, International speaker, former Warren Buffet CEO, Current CEO Alchemy Advisors.

"Those of us who lead or have studied leadership and management over" the years or have experience in both know that leading people can be one of the most gratifying elements of our careers or businesses. This said, leading people can also be very challenging - because we have made it so or allowed it to get to that point. And in this day and age of looking to high profile global leaders as examples, the art and science of leadership has become complex. Leaders need help. This is your help! Read Simplified! It will help you to do just that - lead people in a simple common sense manner. After 30 plus years of leading and consulting I can honestly say that this is one of the easiest reads on leadership - and at the same time one of the most impactful reads you will come across as a leader, mentor, coach, manager or simply someone who wants to get it and develop more insights into leadership."
Donald Walling, President & CEO of the VisionScape Group of Companies

"Dave Clare is one of those rare individuals who can make the complicated simple and he delivers his leadership message with a huge amount of energy, drive and passion. Dave's advice is practical yet inspiring and his vision, uncompromising.  He has truly found the crossover of what he does best and what the world needs most and that's inspiring purpose-driven leaders."
Carrie Puzzar, Senior HR Manager & Founder - Carrie & Co.

Dave delivers a powerful “How to” Book that is a game-changer in the leadership development space. Simplified is true to its title and inside is the roadmap that will shape the generation of new leaders and help those who are trying to cultivate a positive culture, and engagement with their employees and partners. Finally someone removed the noise and lays out the process that hides in plain sight.
Christopher Cumby Serial Entrepreneur, Author • Host, Think Bold, Be Bold



Arthur Ashe said “Success is a journey, not a destination. The doing is often more important than the outcome.” 

The doing is where we learn.

Chapter One: Lead People. 

If you are going to lead people, it makes sense that you should understand people. You need to understand the process of human behaviour. How we got to be who we are and HOW TO become who we need to be.

Chapter Two: Lead Culture. 

Now we understand people as individuals, we need to understand how those people behave in organisations. Understanding HOW TO create organizational behaviour change is critical to build an invincible culture.

Chapter Three: Something, Someone and Someone. 

People want three things. We will work through the three “somes” and what you need to understand about each of these. Then we will look at HOW TO build a framework that encompasses all of them.

Chapter Four: Purpose Drives. 

What problem are you solving in the world? We will look at the importance of understanding WHY you are in business beyond making money. Then we will work out HOW TO use that to engage your employees.

Chapter Five: Values Guide. 

We’ll look beyond the common place corporate principles that are inherent in every business. We will learn HOW TO empower your team with a deeper understanding of the unique thinking your business possesses.

Chapter Six: Vision Inspires. 

What does the world you see look like? What is the contribution your business will make to that world by fulfilling your purpose through your values? Learn HOW TO use vision to inspire your team to do their best work.

Chapter Seven: Lead Strategy. 

Total alignment of your culture and strategy happens when you reverse engineer your vision. We will learn HOW TO create an aligned strategy that brings your vision into reality. Culture leads strategy.

Chapter Eight: Lead Structure. 

Businesses need to overhaul their structures and dismantle hierarchies to adapt and become innovative. We will learn HOW TO lead teams with a purpose-centric structure to empower innovation and build leaders.

Chapter Nine: Lead Service. 

If your customer service sucks it’s because your leadership sucks. What happens on the inside will find a way to manifest itself on the outside. We will learn HOW TO create an inside out customer experience model.

Chapter Ten: Lead Different. 

Leadership is in crisis mode around the world. Disengagement rates are on the rise. Our investment in developing leaders isn’t producing the expected results. It is time to lead different.

BONUS: Tools, Models & Formulas. 

I have included a few of my favourite resources for you as a bonus gift for purchasing this book.

"If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough"
- Albert Einstein

Any book on Leadership, culture and strategy would be considered a competitor by most others. In SIMPLIFIED, what you are getting in this book is a textbook, a workbook, and a storybook all in one. It’s a training program packed with value. It is filled it with every tool and model resource the author has for the reader. SIMPLIFIED is designed to deliver massive VALUE to the reader, in the shortest time possible. 

Leadership is in crisis mode, broken even. The worldwide statistics prove it. Obviously, something isn’t working. We are clearly missing the point when it comes to leadership. Therefore, please don’t be surprised if it seems that SIMPLIFIED is kicking dirt into the face of traditional leadership. 

Competitive titles for the space of leadership may be:

Start With Why - Simon Sinek
Extreme Ownership - Jocko Willink & Leif Babin
Good to Great - Jim Collins
The Truth About Leadership - James M. Kouzes and Barry Z. Posner
Delivering Happiness - Tony Hsieh
Culture Is Everything - Tristan White

This book, SIMPLIFIED, pairs back purpose-driven leadership to the fundamentals. the 20% that produces the 80%. It stays true to the basics of leading people. It is packed with HOW TO's and simple models. These other competitive books are more primarily words without tools.

To some, it may seem that SIMPLIFIED is unreasonable in the leadership development industry. It surely can’t be as simple as the book makes it out to be? 

The current trends in human resources, leadership development and even the coaching industry are frustrating and part of the problem. What we read on modern leadership these days is old principles re-hashed with new fancy titles to make them sound like something newly discovered. That is understood, but does it need to sound so complex? How many steps and laws of leadership are promoted these days? Can you imagine having to own twenty-one irrefutable laws for example? Or 67 success principles? Or 50 rules for being a great leader. Oh, dear lord. 

What SIMPLIFIED will share with the reader is learning from the fundamentals. Why? Because leadership is simple. You lead people. It's time to lead different.

Atmosphere Press logo Atmosphere Press

Atmosphere Press is an independent full-service publisher for books in genres ranging from non-fiction to fiction to poetry to children's picturebooks, with a special emphasis on being an author-friendly approach to getting a book into the world. We're professional, honest, and kind.

Here’s what we stand for:

Honesty: because our mission is to be author-friendly, that means always giving honest advice about the ins and outs of the authorial life. We are dedicated to sticking by one of our founding precepts: “if I were the author, what would I want to know?”

Transparency: publishing is rife with dodgy behavior, from predatory vanity presses who promise the moon to traditional presses who make book changes without the author’s permission. We’re dedicated to letting you see the wizard behind the curtain, so you can rest easy that everything’s on the up and up.

Professionalism: with decades of combined years of writing, editing, designing, and publishing experience, our staff knows the ins and outs of the industry, and will be responsive and helpful. And of course, we will only publish books that truly contribute something wonderful to the world.

Kindness: as an author-friendly press, we take the word “friendly” seriously. A good publisher shouldn’t be just a business partner, but should be full of people you’d want to invite to dinner. Whether it be making a good joke or allaying your worries about being an author, kindness is our hallmark.

Making Your Book Awesome: we really can’t settle for anything less. We want our authors and their readers to be blown away when they first hold that book in their hands. It needs to look good inside and out, and feel good to the touch. And, of course, the words need to be top-notch, and our editors are devoted to making that the case.

Gladiator Publishing Company logo Gladiator Publishing Company

Gladiator Publishing Co. has held a reputation in the Literary Industry for nearly 100 Years as a Writer-Loyal company. Nearly 100-years later, Gladiator Publishing Company still maintains that strong characteristic. We place our Authors publications first and foremost. You may hear many other "Publishing entities" state that they are "the first" to do this or the "originator/pioneer" of that. If everyone is using the same marketing, promotional, and advertising pipelines what makes them so original?

As the proud recipients of six-awards in 2018 for our innovative marketing techniques, media outreach, extremely low budget compared to the Global Industry Standard (72-83% cheaper), and an Author-inclusive style, it is no wonder we are the #1 Requested Publishing Service on the East Coast. We are staffed with industry-specific professionals that are dedicated to market and brand development.

Full Editing Services (substantive, copy, formatting, proofreading, story flow, line) are INCLUDED in the price. No hidden fees, no extra cost for something that Publishing Services should be more than happy to provide to benefit the manuscripts success. The industry has turned toward greed and away from literature. It's sick and inappropriate, it's ok to agree, they know it too.
