The Synopsis

Great leaders aren’t born. They’re not made, either. 

They’re in the making. 

They’re constantly creating and re-creating themselves, their companies, and their leadership.

Too often, the bottom line in business is valued more than the journey endured to get there. But the journey is where real growth occurs.

The Review

This was an incredibly well-written and captivating read. The author does an amazing job early on in establishing a personal connection with the reader with an intimate writing style while also demonstrating authority and expertise in the subject matter through the detailed guide and knowledge the book imparts to the reader. The applications of the author’s work to both real-life situations and business as a whole were great to see illustrated in the author’s writing.

For me, the heart of this narrative came down to the difference established between managers and leaders, and the concept of an ever-evolving growth in becoming a leader. The way author dives into the different ways in which people learn, and how those who take a more scholarly approach and can use the lessons taught in school in their everyday life make great managers, while great leaders are always learning and growing and the world is their classroom, so to speak. The emphasis put on learning on a consistent level throughout one’s life and career was so inspiring, as it gives everyone a fair and hopeful chance at improving their life and becoming more than what the world says they should be, and the applications for these lessons in a more business sense were well developed.
