CornerStone Leadership Institute

An incredible business success story, CornerStone Leadership Institute was founded by David Cottrell in 1997 with few customers and little revenue. Cottrell had spent more than two decades in corporate America, working with Xerox, FedEx, and The National Spirit Group. CornerStone provided an opportunity for him to pursue his passion – providing affordable resources for managers and leaders to become the best at their chosen profession.

Those first years weren't easy, but CornerStone's unique mission provided Cottrell the motivation he needed to weather those lean years. Creating thought-leadership tools and resources, CornerStone continued to provide products that offered short, easy-to-read, and implementable actions to help people within organizations of all sizes and industries become more successful.

In 1999, CornerStone launched its publishing division with the publication of Listen Up, Leader – a handbook with over 700,000 copies currently in print. Since the release of Listen Up, Leader, CornerStone has published over forty books, including Monday Morning Leadership, which has sold over one million copies throughout the world. Monday Morning Leadershipwas recognized as one of Business Week's top fifteen business books.

From one man's dream, CornerStone Leadership Institute has risen to become a multi-million-dollar organization, as well as one of the most recognized and profitable companies in the training and business publishing industry.

CornerStone products have been purchased by companies and individuals in all fifty states and countries around the globe. Many of the CornerStone products are translated in several languages including Spanish, Portuguese, Korean, Chinese, Thai, Japanese,s and several others.
