If you own your own business or even if you're solo, on your own, you get bombarded almost daily from people urging you to take their leadership course or read their leadership book. It's become so prevalent that I avoid them all. Ah ha! Except this one. Step-by-step, week-by-week, in small bites I can handle, I can begin to understand that it's about who I'm BEING as a leader that trumps what I think I need to DO. As I tell my clients, "What you say and what you do, in and of itself is insufficient to make a difference as a powerful leader". And my friend Dr. Kim Nugent takes it one step further as she challenges you through the steps in how to BE an exceptional leader. It's all in the amazing conversation you'll find in this book. -- Daniel F. Prosser, CEO Mentor and Best-Selling Author of THIRTEENERS
