Dr. Gary Marshall – DBA - Leadership

"Finding Your Granite my Four Cornerstones of Personal Leadership is a moving and powerful memoir. The author, Doug Pflug, grew up in a small town in Southern Western Ontario, where from a very early age, had to overcome unimaginable obstacles. Doug decided to attend university to escape the confines of small-town life, where his stint as a standout athlete led him to discover his real calling as a law enforcement officer. This memoir chronicles his internal struggle to understand his version of his life and to have the courage to step forward from his past. It offers a glimpse into a way of life that most of us will never experience, as well as an inspiring story about one man’s capacity to rise up and excel. Read this book now!"

"Doug’s story brought back many of the struggles I faced during my time with the Canadian Forces and post-service. It is a story that many veterans and public safety members share, and I am truly inspired by Doug and his ability to put that fight into words and his willingness and courage to share it with others. A key underlying principle to leadership displayed is that not all outstanding leaders are born but are created. Leadership is a journey that a select few navigate with the grace and humility that is showed in this book. A must-read for LEOs and public safety professionals".

REVIEW #3 by:

Chris D. Lewis, OPP Commissioner (Ret.) and author of "Never Stop on a Hill"

"Reflecting on his life and career, Doug recounts the many events and people that shaped him. From a serious childhood illness, through school, his involvement in sports, coaching, and a successful police career – he learned from the good and from the bad along that journey. He presents his personal learnings and advice on resiliency and leadership from the heart, and additionally offers challenges to make the reader a better person and leader. A down-to-earth and enjoyable read!"

"Webster’s dictionary symbolizes ‘granite’ as possessing "unyielding firmness or endurance". Doug Pflug provides a blueprint for life based of real-life experiences from birth and how he utilized many of his life moments to create a legacy driven by the ideals of "firmness and endurance". We all have life history and Doug tells his story like we are at a backyard barbecue - relaxed and sincere - in hopes we can identify with something that can help us as we create our own legacy".
