Bell Leadership Books

Gerald Bell is a person widely regarded throughout the world for his expertise, teaching and consulting on leadership, teamwork and personal effectiveness. I'm excited about his help with me at UNC and on our forthcoming book on coaching and teamwork for leaders in sports and in business.

Bell Leadership Books

Dr. Bell is currently working on a series of books that build on the ideas and practices presented in his classic, The Achievers. The new books will provide fresh perspectives on the personality patterns of Achievers, and will explain fully, for the first time, how to select Achievers, how to communicate like Achievers and how to raise children to be happy, healthy achieving adults.

The Achievers: $18.57
When we are born we have a natural urge, a biogenetic heritage to be Achievers. An Achiever is problem-centered, goal-oriented, and self-reliant, maximizing his potential to reach the highest levels of competence and self-fulfillment. -Gerald D. Bell, Ph.D.
