We all have leadership roles. You don't have to have a title to be a leader. If friends come to you for answers, if a child holds your hand as you are grocery shopping, if a youngster is on the receiving end of a game of catch, if you are involved in an organizational activity and members ask what you think, if people look to you for direction, you are a leader.

We encourage you to explore Leadership in new ways. Take a look around you and you will find lessons in leadership everywhere.

We live in the most confusing climate of our era when leadership theories and methods are just not as effective as they used to be. These days many are finding it challenging to be effective in their varied and demanding leadership roles. New slants on old models aren't cutting it anymore. Along with these challenges comes increased difficulty as we strive to form meaningful connections and communication in the midst of a technology-driven society.

We must face the reality that yesterday's solutions won't solve today's problems. To be successful in reaching out, maintaining relationships, generating new business, and remaining competitive, we must identify a new approach.

In this indispensable resource, top visionaries and experts share their leadership secrets, proven formulas, and the defining moments that have shaped their lives and careers. A wealth of information is delivered within these exclusive interviews for the purpose of guiding you on your own journey to the best you can be.

You have a vision for what you hope your life-your business-your contribution to the world-will be. But the road to get there often seems winding, uneven, and filled with pitfalls. Sit back, take a deep breath, and allow each of these experts to share with you about their own personal journey.
