The Leadership Leap offers a collection of simple, yet powerful insights for taking the leadership leap in your life.
What is The Leadership Leap
We all have challenges in our life, whether it be in our personal
life, business or organization. Most of these challenges aren’t due to a
lack of resources but more so due to a lack of good leadership.
To be able to move forward on your leadership journey you first need
to ‘unlearn’ certain things. People are always there to teach you new
things, but rarely can they help you ‘unlearn’ your old ways.
To allow us to climb the career ladder, or move to the next level in
our lives we have to take a leap of faith or ‘The Leadership Leap’. Most
of us find it very difficult to make the leadership leap because very
few of us know how to unlearn the way we have been leading our lives up
to this point.
This book is written in a clear and concise manner to provide you
with the frameworks you will need to make the leadership leap in your
personal life as well as your professional career. There are 7 chapters
that will blow away your misconceptions about leadership so you can take
the next step on your life’s journey.
