Why is it that some people challenge and motivate us, while others drain our spirit? What is that magical quality certain people have that makes others engage fully?
In her hugely inspirational and practical book, Betsy Myers—senior adviser to two US presidents and former executive director of Harvard’s Center for Public Leadership— demonstrates that you do not need to be in a boardroom, on a battlefield, or on a ballot to have a profound impact on everyone around you. Good leadership is not about having the most knowledge or power but about how you make others feel. Drawing on her experiences from the Oval Office to the playground, Myers reveals seven core principles that will help you:
• Set the right priorities for yourself
• Uncover problems while they are still easy to fix
• Connect with others on a deeper level
• Collaborate with those whose viewpoints differ from yours
• Push through your fears
True leadership is not just all around us—it’s within us.
