I've had a number of advisors for student leadership groups across the country download copies of this leadership ebook for their students. Business leaders write me and tell me that this ebook has shaped the way that they look at leadership on a daily basis.
They have found it provided an outstanding image-metaphor for what leadership is really all about. What would happen if you touched every base, everyday? This ebook covers the bases:
• Start at HOME and check your Compass.
• Run to FIRST and guard your Character.
• Run to SECOND and connect with your Community.
• Run to THIRD and exercise your Competencies.
• Run back to HOME and evaluate your success.
Why is this ebook doing so well?
One of the questions that students ask me is "how they can improve their leadership abilities on a daily basis?" They want some basic handles on the kinds of things they should be doing or working toward to become better leaders.
Instead of tossing them definitions of leadership and giving them checklists, I have created a resource that helps them to cover, what I believe, to be the four most important bases of leadership. I've put it all into a downloadable ebook.
This easy to read ebook is presently available through Paypal ($3.00)
I believe that we learn to be better leaders when we approach it from a holistic perspective, rather than a list of items that we simply check off. We learn to lead by leading. As a student, one of the first people that one should start leading is him or herself. This ebook helps a leader to better understand the areas that he or she must touch each and every day in order to be the most effective.
