IMPACT: A Leadership Fable: Your Power To Make A Lasting Difference
IMPACT: A Leadership Fable is an inspirational tale of how to be a quality leader while maintaining values we often lose sight of along the road to success.
This is not your typical list of ways to be a better leader. Galen uses storytelling to highlight the seductive traps every would-be leader must avoid, as well as principles to stay on the right course.
In this one leadership fable, Galen tells a story, shares tools to help chart a course to leadership success, and compiles real examples from leaders in business, education and nonprofit sectors; all to reveal how you too can be a leader who matters to others – even when you’re no longer present.
Whether you are a new front-line professional or an experienced leader heading a complex organization, it’s possible to have confidence in the difference you are making – and it may be easier than you think.
