The True Essence of Leadership

I’m 2/3 of the way through Steve Farber’s new book, Greater Than Yourself, and I have to say that he’s nailed it again! Whether you are familiar with Steve’s business fables or not, I would recommend getting all three of his books. His first two (The Radical Leap and The Radical Edge) take you an amazing trip of how to become an Extreme Leader. His current book (GTY), displays the true essence of leadership: Mentoring and teaching others to ensure that they become more successful than you. Isn’t that what we’re here for? To see our loved ones (both personally and professionally) succeed to a point above and beyond our own success?

Steve has laid out a perfect plan to mentoring and has challenged every reader to partake in their own “Greater Than Yourself” project. If you don’t go out and get the book, I’d ask that you at least check out Steve’s website to learn more about this great challenge.

Have a Great Week!

As you can see, I haven't been blogging much recently, and I would prefer to not put your link in a new post.

I hope you will understand.

Thank you.
