Praise for the book WALK THE WALK.

“A great read. Walk the Walk should be required reading for anyone who aspires to lead. Its message is simple: If you want to be a leader, you have to understand the impact of your actions. This book will force leaders to look in the mirror and decide that they need to walk the walk.”

— Urban Meyer, Head Coach, two-time national champion University of Florida football team

“Walk the Walk is an inspiring, centering read. It grounds us all in the most important elements of leadership and challenges us to fulfill our potential in enlisting the commitment and energy of others.”

— Wendy Kopp, CEO & Founder
Teach For America

“Leaders and aspiring leaders should thank Alan Deutschman for this powerful message. Your words alone mean nothing. Your actions — and only your actions — speak. All successful leaders understand it, while failed leaders don't.”

— Geoff Colvin, senior editor at large, Fortune Magazine, and author of Talent Is Overrated

“I always say that ‘change’ is a verb. It has to happen in action. You have to do it. That’s the terrific lesson of Walk the Walk. This inspiring book looks at real leaders who’ve made themselves a part of the change — and the extraordinary results they’ve achieved.”

— Mimi Silbert, CEO
Delancey Street Foundation

“With riveting stories of leaders from every sector, Walk the Walk serves as a reminder that business, at its best, is a moral enterprise. This book will give support to leaders who want to do the right thing and do well in the process.”

—Carla O'Dell, president, APQC, and co-author of If We Only Knew What We Know
