What's New



PAR is making news, not just with our book Cracking the Code, but with our award-winning programs and writings, too.

PAR Senior Partners G. Thomas Herrington and Patrick T. Malone are authors of a number of leadership and training articles that focus on the core skills that leaders intuitively use and show readers how to incorporate those skills in everyday life. A selection of those articles and a sample chapter from Cracking the Code are available for download.
