Dear Leaders,

I’m incredibly excited about the recent release of my book The Four Virtues of a Leader – Navigating the Hero’s Journey Through Risk to Results published by Sounds True. In fact, Barnes & Noble got so enamored that they featured my book on a promotional table in their Top 100 stores. WooHoo!

Marshall Goldsmith, Best Selling Author and the World’s Most Influential Leadership Thinker, calls this book “A truly visionary work” and this Publisher’s Weekly review calls it a “meditation on the soul of a leader.” The book reviews are flowing in and I’m grateful for the amazing response and community that is building around this book so quickly!

My book challenges common thinking while giving practical ideas on what I have found to be the four virtues, or cornerstones, of good leadership, how to:

  • Stay focused
  • Be courageous
  • Persevere as you accelerate your organizational growth
  • Take the leaps of faith that we all need to do to move from the old to the new

It differs from other leadership books on the shelf as it guides leaders to successfully fuse an unwavering commitment to business results with a deep respect for the human spirit.

If you have already purchased a copy, THANK YOU! Please leave me a review on the Amazon page for the book.

The One Thing that Makes a Leader Great with Will M:

390 – The One Thing That Makes a Leader Great

sff-10-14-16-3

PONDER THIS: What’s the number one thing that makes a leader great? The answer might surprise you. It’s actually humility.

RESEARCH SAYS: It’s true. Researchers have found that personal humility and great ambition, two seemingly conflicting qualities, are the most important qualities found in today’s top leaders. The secret to achieving both humility and ambition simultaneously is the best leaders are highly ambitious, but their ambition is not for themselves; instead, they are ambitious for the greater good. Because their attention is focused on the greater good, they feel no need to inflate their own egos. That makes them driven and inspiring.

TRY THIS: Think of how can you incorporate both humility and ambition into your work life and home life.

It is better by noble boldness to run the risk of being subject to half the evils we anticipate than to remain in cowardly listlessness for fear of what might happen.
