THE NEW SUPERIOR is a bold but heartfelt tutorial on the fundamentals of contemporary high-stakes leadership, drawn from the unique experiences and insights of one of America’s most respected forensic laboratory executives.

Urgency energizes teams in the face of existential threats. But momentum is often sacrificed by toxic influencers whose need to dominate suppresses collaboration, even in matters of life and death. From the bombing of the 1996 Olympics to the brutal slaying of a young fashion model near Chicago, John M. Collins takes you inside of pressure-packed situations where two opposing styles of leadership confront each other in a primitive and dangerous struggle. In this struggle you will learn that both styles live within you, but only one will allow you to become the leader that people trust when everything is on the line.


“You’ve written a book that can change organizational culture and interpersonal relationships.”

Robert W. Fuller
Author of Somebodies and Nobodies – Overcoming the Abuse of Rank
