Leaders never withhold or hoard what is helpful to someone else. They pass along profitable principles to help other people progress in their own journeys. The book you hold in your hands is not some-thing you read from cover to cover in one sitting. It is a resource gathered from my leadership note-books over the years that you will hopefully return to again and again to find insight for your own leadership journey. It is a journal of principles, quotes, notes, and insights from years of leadership experience to help the reader grow and develop in the leadership journey.
