These are lessons taught by people encountered along lifes path, heard in conversations and stories, or drawn from powerful photographs, favorite books and sermons that struck a resilient chord. In some cases, the lessons herein are reflections on personal and professional experiences encountered during a long career in public service and private consulting. Recurring leadership/life themes stressed throughout the book include the importance of living honorable, humble lives- taking responsibility for our actions- setting an example for others to follow- and concentrating significant energy on the development of personal character, our inner core, so that we can then devote our attentions outside of ourselves. Leadership is far more than a set of job skills- in fact, it is a suite of life skills that transcend all aspects of our lives. True leadership is about giving, not receiving- about serving not being served.
