Stephen Mansfield and his writing partner, David Holland, have just completed a new book about Sarah Palin. Though most books dealing with the former Alaska governor either attack or defend her, Mansfield and Holland’s book seeks to explain what Palin’s beliefs and the popular response to them exposes in American culture. Entitled The Faith and Values of Sarah Palin: What She Believes and What it Means for America, this new book releases in late September.
The Mansfield Group has just launched a new foundation designed to train and coach leaders around the world. Called The Global Leadership Development Fund, this organization arose from Stephen Mansfield’s international teaching work. Time and again Stephen would find himself with leaders from every walk of life—politics, business, and military to name but a few arenas—who needed training, coaching and strategic networking as leaders. Stephen came to understand that he could do wider good by sponsoring training events and when he did so they were exceptionally successful. Initially, he and Beverly funded these events themselves. As invitations and opportunities increased, they came to realize that they needed partners to make the growing number of events possible. This is what led to The Global Leadership Development Fund, which will make possible leadership training events and the follow-up coaching and networking that has the potential to transform nations.

Stephen Mansfield and his co-author, David A. Holland, have just learned that their biography of Paul Harvey—entitled Paul Harvey’s America—has won the 2010 Retailers Choice Award for Biography. The book represents the first collaboration between Mansfield and Holland, who were dear friends long before they began writing together. Mansfield has previously won the award twice, for both the English and the Spanish versions of his The Faith of George W. Bush. This year’s award is all the sweeter to him because it honors his partnership with Holland and because the book was a labor of appreciation for the life of Paul Harvey. Congratulations to Stephen and David!
