New book by Mark Sanborn

Just starting to read a new book from my talented friend Mark Sanborn on leadership titled, "You don't need a TITLE to be a leader."

Perfect little book for sitting and reflecting on the beach. Even if that is not the case, if you desire to be a leader in your life, career, or community invest in this book and then follow Mark's advice. I do!

PS: Took some beach time yesterday and then last evening to finish this great book... Going to buy a few copies for some of my leadership clients... this is good!

Let me share a quote from Mark's final chapter that strongly resonates with me and what I teach in my own leadership sessions and coaching.

"Leadership isn't a mysterious act practiced by only a select few. It is the daily response of every man and woman who wishes to make a positive difference in the world and make it a better place as a result of their efforts."
Mark Sanborn, 2006
