The Strong Leader's Hand: 6 Essential Elements Every Leader Must Master
Major General Dan York, U.S. Army Reserves

No stranger to leadership, Daniel York has directed or led people for over forty years to include his current position as the Commanding General of the 104th Division (Leader Training). Growing up in Okinawa, South Korea, Japan, and the Philippines and across the United States, he learned much about leading in different cultures and settings. Dan graduated from West Point in 1981 and was commissioned a Second Lieutenant in the U.S. Army. He served with the 101st Airborne (Air Assault) Division and as a company commander deployed his unit to the Middle East. In 1986 he joined the Army Reserves where he served as a commander at every level to include his most recent selection to command the 86th Division. Dan served on staff with The Navigators for ten years during which time he received a Master of Divinity from Bethel Seminary (West) in San Diego, CA before moving with his family in 1991 to Oregon to plant and pastor Horizon Community Church. In 2000, he started the nonprofit First Cause, an organization committed to developing leaders currently active in five countries. He has written five books and recorded seven albums of original music. He and his wife Kathleen have been married for over 28 years and have three children, Bryan, Sarah and Stephen.

In The Strong Leader’s Hand, I present six elements that I believe leaders must master if they want to succeed.   Using the hand and five fingers as a mnemonic device, I have carefully defined each element and then illustrated why each is important using a series of three stories.  In sharing stories, whether sober or funny, the reader is given practical depiction of what these elements look like when applied.  Discipline in application is required but that discipline is best enhanced with clear understanding.  Here then is a summary page of The Strong Leader’s Hand.
