"I absolutely loved Caring Enough to Lead. I was amazed to find someone who thinks just like I do. As I was reading, I found many real-life experiences with which I could identify. The scenarios, metaphors, and vignettes made the book come to life. Thank you for writing such an entertaining, yet educational text."
"In the universe of tedious tomes on leadership, Caring Enough to Lead exists on another planet, light years away from comparison to a textbook. This book is a thought-provoking conversation with the author, who proves in a few short chapters that the truths for effective leading are the same as the truths for successful living. Pellicer succeeds in guiding the reader with a humorous, touching, and personal style to reflect on the values and beliefs of true leaders."
"A valuable resource for all leadership development programs. It will not only motivate emerging leaders, but will inspire all leaders to reflect on their own journeys and appreciate the caring relationships valued in work and daily lives. Pellicer's writing speaks to your heart while so vividly illustrating the true meaning of leadership."
"Strikes at the core of our national conversation about moral leadership. Through the art of storytelling, Pellicer helps us understand that becoming a loving, humble servant to those we lead is the real measure of strength in leadership. He makes a compelling case that masterful leadership is not about what you do, but who you are becoming. This book is a must-read for all leaders, from aspiring to retiring, who are interested in their own journey."
"Pellicer reminds educators why we entered the education field in the first place. He has hit the proverbial nail on its head, and I highly encourage all graduate schools of education and all teacher leaders to make this book required reading!"
"Pellicer's work continues to inspire another generation of school leaders. My students are hungry for the profound, for the deep, and for the internal insight into the work that they do. This book provides a platform and a space for this to happen."
