CACI International Inc (NYSE: CACI) announced today that Chairman of the Board Dr. J. Phillip London has released his new book: Character: The Ultimate Success Factor. The book provides an insightful and practical demonstration of how character, expressed through attitudes, actions, and resilience, is the key to long-term success.
Character: The Ultimate Success Factor is based on Dr. London’s personal, corporate, and military experiences, along with real-life examples. “I decided to write about character because of its central role in our personal, professional, and organizational success,” Dr. London says. “Character is a unique set of moral and ethical qualities that define what we believe in, what we stand for, and what we expect of ourselves and others. While a variety of factors form our abilities and influence the events in our lives, how individuals and organizations act on these qualities determines how far they will go.”
Dr. London also explains that changing how success is perceived is the first step in achieving it consistently. An evolving process, success is uniquely defined by Dr. London as acting with honesty and integrity, performing to the best of one’s abilities, and appreciating the people who helped along the way. According to Dr. London, “Genuine success is never gained by unethical or unlawful means, for dubious purposes, or at great moral cost.”
Norman Augustine, the former Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of Lockheed Martin, penned the foreword for Character: The Ultimate Success Factor. The book also features endorsements from Hall of Fame quarterback Roger Staubach, former Vietnam prisoner of war Commander Everett Alvarez, Jr., USN (Ret.), and Colonel Lee Ellis, USAF (Ret.).
