Read full description of the books Hardcore Leadership: 11 Master Lessons from My Airborne Ranger Uncle's "Final Jump":Military service has long been viewed as the steadied model of leadership. Those who’ve who’ve answered that call, yesteryear to current times, from ‘old soldier’ to modern-day warrior, have carried on this institution’s ultimate mission to support and defend freedom.
Then what can we, as leaders, learn from this historical model for dealing with today’s mission challenges, uniquely gleaning lessons from the life of an ‘old soldier’? For the late retired Command Sergeant Major, Vietnam Vet, Ranger Hall of Fame inductee and the Honorable Harris L. Parker, his oldest niece and fellow army veteran Deborah L. Parker approves his timeless message of leadership. Ensuring that he has not faded away, she honors the achievements of her late uncle, lovingly known as Hardcore to his family, with these eleven powerful lessons for those who find themselves in charge in their work, community, or home. Reporting on her uncle’s service to his country and purpose, as well as in leadership positions for their native Virginia county of Sussex, Parker overlays his noted wisdom, courage and vision with practical strategies to start your own leadership campaign.
Weaving in take-aways from her career and personal experiences in leadership development through her company The DPJ Training Group, Parker, also a retired reserve Lieutenant Colonel, has put together a thought-provoking book packed with memorable teaching anecdotes. Inspiring and informative in saluting her uncle’s biographical legacy, she makes the case for us all in Hardcore’s words, to ‘press on.’
Read information about the authorDeborah L. Parker was born in the rural town of Waverly Virginia and has travelled many paths since then that have provided hard yet hearty lessons. She takes readers along as she chronicles the insights learned from her determined single parent upbringing in the home of her wise grandparents, then on to college, an army reserve officer career to corporate manager, entrepreneur and now published author. She has been interviewed on Destiny Radio, My Spirit DC, on the setbacks and successes of her journey through family, career, faith, health and relationship issues that she timelines in this well-received motivational memoir.
Now Deborah manages a motivational speaking, leadership and personal development workshop company, The DPJ Training Group, located in Leesburg where she specializes in seminars and coaching on career, diversity, management and communications topics. She holds a B.A. in Sociology from the College of William and Mary and M.A. in Human Resources Development from George Mason University.
A love for writing started early in Deborah's life so while in college she often asked her professors if she could write papers for extra grade credit. Taking that passion forward, she has authored articles on life strategies, business and community issues for publications such as the Alexandria Old Town Crier, Washington Afro Newspaper, Metro Herald and Arizona’s Black Executive Magazine.
In her community life, Deborah is a member of Loudoun County Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., the Metro DC Chapter of the American Society for Training and Development, and Mount Pleasant Baptist Church in Herndon, Virginia.
An area of particular writing interest for Deborah is taking the experiences from growing up and falling down to frame them into valuable lessons. Much of that she’s found to come from her own mis-steps and the observations of her family to push on in spite of life’s challenges and personal frailties. She has more books to come in this genre that readers will find reflective and motivating!
