Ignite the Leader Within You

Leadership is a tough gig.

I’m not talking about being in “management”, although that is a really tough job too.

What I mean is leading – stepping up, making the tough calls, doing the right thing even when nobody’s looking.

Are you a leader?

Even if you don’t have an official leadership title, I bet you’ve been called to lead as a parent, a volunteer, a mentor or a project manager.

If you wear any of these hats, no doubt you’ve been confronted with the realization at some point in our lives, we all lead.

And that takes character.


So, maybe the question is: 

“Are you a character-based leader?”


And what the heck would that be?

Character-based leaders lead from the power of who they are, rather than from their position of authority or designated job title. People who lead with character don’t wait for “them” to do “something” to make “it” right. They see a need and make a move to close that gap.

Do you see a need somewhere in your life that requires leadership? Might YOU be the person to step up?

If so, I invite you to learn more about the book The Character-Based Leader.  It’s a book written by 21 members of the Lead Change Group, a global, non-profit community dedicated applying character-based leadership.

This book is the spark that can ignite the leader within you.

The Character-Based Leader explores topics such as:

Creating this book has been a true “labor of love” – a 100% volunteer effort that was 15 months in the making. I thank the countless people who made this dream possible – project managers, editors, graphic artists, Dog Ear Publishing, the amazing team at Weaving Influence and, of course, my fellow authors.

And now, I ask you this:


Are you ready to show the world what you're made of
