What’s are today’s emerging leaders to do?  Who do they learn from and how will they prepare themselves to lead their organizations in the coming years.  Leo and Randy talk about what serving our next generation of leaders will entail.

An Amazon Review Thank You!

Last month, Taylor & Francis Publishing released my second book, What Anyone Can Do: How Surrounding Yourself With the Right People Will Drive Change, Opportunity & Personal Growth. (Illustrations by @RyanFoland).

Since Amazon Reviews can be very helpful to a book’s overall success, I am asking you to consider posting a short review. As I often joke, “If you like the book, feel free to contribute a review. If you don’t, you don’t have to do anything!” 😉 I invite you to join Jim Kouzes (Coauthor, The Leadership Challenge), Rich Karlgaard (Publisher, Forbes), JJ Ramberg (Host of MSNBC’s Your Business), etc. in your support. Click here to read their comments and write your own review!

To digress for a moment, let me share where the title comes from. In his 1976 book The Long Run Solution, Joe Henderson suggested that becoming truly accomplished at running (or at anything, for that matter) doesn’t typically require us to perform superhuman feats. Success doesn’t ask us to do what no one else can do. All too often, success and happiness find those who have the discipline to do the everyday things, the things anyone can do that most of us never will. I believe all of us can surround ourselves with people who can lift us up, and when we do, we will be inspired to do the things anyone can do far more often.

1) With your busy schedule, if you’re not inclined to read the whole book, please message me, and I’ll send you a sample chapter and you can write your review based on the basic content and concept. Upon posting your review, provide me with your mailing address and, as my thank you, I will send you a hardcover copy for yourself or to give as a gift to a friend or family member.

2) If you buy a copy of the book, or have purchased one already, please post your review and send me your mailing info, and I’ll send you a copy to give as a gift.

Finally, if you’re among those who contributed your ideas for a book title, please message me, so I can deliver on providing you your free book as promised.

Write your review by October 15th and you’ll receive two books!! Thank you!!!
