His work spans the United States, Canada, South America, South Africa, Hong Kong, Brazil, The Caribbean and the United Kingdom.

Ken’s last book, The Leadership Triangle co-authored with Kevin Ford was released in January 2012. Stephen Covey says “This terrific book offers clear and precise “options” that a leader can choose in order to successfully transform their organization to meet the challenges of these uncertain times. It also provides many insightful examples from key leaders who model these concepts themselves. The result is a powerful read.” Ken Blanchard adds “I love this book! I’m a firm believer in a situational approach to leadership. You not only need to use different strokes for different folks, but also for different situations. Ford and Tucker do a superb job of the latter scenario. The Leadership Triangle is a guidebook to help leaders, no matter what kind of organization, choose the right approach for the situation they face. Read this book and increase tenfold your chances of success.”
