You Can Join Us to make a Real Difference – Help Get these Books into Print


Launching our Initiatives and Delivering Programs requires world-class Thought Leadership.

The “Trusted to Lead” series of four books is intended to deliver publications that focus on how leaders can build more trust, cooperation, alignment, alliances, teamwork — and performance — into their organizations.

After years of testing in the crucible of action, combined with endless applied research, we’ve discovered the fundamentals that really make a difference in unifying people, and, ultimately creating the elusive synergy that has been so hard to fathom and sustain.

Our next generation of leaders — millennials — have lost faith in our future.
They need new ideas and ideals. These books will inspire and guide future generations.

To provide the intellectual horsepower to fuel our work in Collaborative Leadership Excellence, we are aiming to publish four books in the next three years.
All books are well into the 2nd draft stage, research is close to finalization.

Robert Porter Lynch is the main author on all four books, with contributions from dozens of other authorities. Robert has published four other highly regarded books in strategic alliances — which have become the “foundational architectures” for this next evolution in Collaborative Excellence.

Lou Traina, Ph.D. has joined our team to serve as Senior Editor in Chief of the Four Book Series. His contribution will be significant.


The Rushmore Strategy links the advice of the four Rushmorian Presidents with real breakthroughs in the “Architecture of Trust,” including the neuroscience of the brain and best practices in trust-building derived from our extensive experience in the field of collaboration.


Collaborative Excellence  provides leaders with a powerful framework for creating sustainable and highly effective organizations that perform at least 20% better than the norm. The book provides clear guidance to enable four critical alignments – strategic, cultural, operational, & dynamic.


Capitalism is under fire from millennials, who have given up our economic system, and from most Americans appalled by those who abuse our economic system. This book outlines a bold new future for capitalism. The result of years of experience & research, it promises a 25% competitive advantage to those with moral character.


We are experiencing the most rapid change ever known on the planet. While technology creates massive disruptions, this book focuses how to use the creative minds of people in your company and in your value chain to create a perpetual innovation engine to adapt rapidly.

We estimate these books will be foundational works that affect hundreds of thousands of people over the years to come. To bring these books to a wide audience, we need financial support — it will take three years of hard work to finish these four volumes. Robert has invested and depleted  his  personal resources to get to this advanced stage. (go to Institute Publications to see the the extensive array of research and writing that has brought our journey to this stage.)

Going farther means we need your help.

We estimate that the 4 four books will require at least $20,000/book to be completed, including writing, final research, editing, and proofing.

Each has a goal of a minimum of $50,000 to begin an early-stage liftoff.
