Make every step count on your leadership journey.

How did American military leaders in the brutal POW camps of North Vietnam inspire their followers for six, seven, or eight years to remain committed to the mission, resist a cruel enemy, and return home with honor? What leadership principles engendered such extreme devotion, perseverance, and teamwork?

In this powerful and practical book, Lee Ellis, a former Air Force pilot, candidly talks about his five and a half years of captivity and the fourteen key leadership principles behind this amazing story. As a successful executive coach and corporate consultant, he helps leaders of Fortune 500 companies, healthcare executives, small business owners, and entrepreneurs utilize these same pressure-tested principles to increase their personal and organizational success.

In Leading with Honor: Leadership Lessons from the Hanoi Hilton, you will learn

– courageous lessons from POW leaders facing torture in the crucible of captivity;
– how successful teams are applying these same lessons and principles;
– how to implement these lessons using the coaching sessions provided in each chapter.

In the book’s foreword, Senator John McCain states, “In Leading with Honor, Lee draws from the POW experience, including some of his own personal story, to illustrate the crucial impact of leadership on the success of any organization. He highlights lessons and principles that can be applied to every leadership situation.”

This book is ideal for individual or group study as a personal development, coaching, human resource development, or executive training resource.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Much  more than a leadership text, Ellis offers an inspiring story that will engage readers.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “A moving experience—somewhat like hearing a rare public talk by a revered elder. Now a business consultant, Ellis has a calm manner of delivering advice on such topics such as communication, loyalty, group cohesion, and, of course, adhering to one’s principles. But it’s the steady stream of first-person POW experiences that rivets attention and holds this wisdom together. These are stories that will make listeners reach inside for their highest self before doing anything as a leader.”


  • “Lee uses gripping stories from the POW camps to engage the reader and teach invaluable principles of leadership. I highly recommend this book for developing leaders at all levels in any organization, military or civilian.”

    Gen. William R. Looney III, USAF (ret.)

  • “A great read on integrity, character, and leadership. Lee captures the essence of what it takes to provide strong leadership, as well as followership, in some of the most difficult conditions ever faced by our military men.”

    R. E. “Gene” Smith, past president and chairman of the board, Air Force Association; POW 25 Oct. 1967–14 March 1973

  • “Ellis has given us a true gift—real solutions to today’s leadership issues against a backdrop of real human survival in Prisoner of War status. This wonderful book is a must-read for all who aspire to any leadership job! An absolute page-turner and tribute to our warriors of a by-gone era, with lessons for today.”

    Lt. Gen. William A. Lord, USAF
