A Visionary Work

This book is a guide to developing yourself as a great leader in thought and action. The four critical virtues for becoming a great leader are: focus (what are you creating?), courage (what are you avoiding?), grit (what are you sustaining?), and faith (what are you letting go?). Earnest, encouraging, and thoughtful, this meditation on the soul of a leader will help any leader recognize how self-understanding accelerates them along their journey to greatness.
