Ancient Chinese philosopher Lao-Tzu is often credited with the phrase, "The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step." Unfortunately, he had nothing to say about which step was the right one. Your journey to be the leader you want to be begins here.

Lead 4 Success™ sets your development as a leader on the right track, focusing on the 4 fundamental skills that fuel the thoughts and drive the actions of leaders who make a difference:

  • SELF-AWARENESS — understanding who you are and what you have to offer
  • LEARNING AGILITY — the capability to absorb new information, process it, and use it to meet new challenges quickly and decisively
  • COMMUNICATION — the ability to establish shared understanding and convey a vision for the future
  • INFLUENCE — the power to persuade others to act on that vision.

Each essential skill is made up of other skills.

To ensure the success of your leadership journey, use this book as a guide. Its tools and ideas will help you develop and put into practice the skills that you need to demonstrate true leadership.
