“A must read for all current leaders and aspiring readers.  Discovering the Leader within You offers a wealth of insights about leadership, and the importance of self introspection, moral courage, humility, trust, empathy, and a servant attitude.   The book highlights the challenge of finding one’s voice and unique character as a leader through a continuous process of self-discovery, evolution and adaptation.  This is a must read for all those aspiring to ascend the leadership ladder, and all those seeking to become better more effective leaders.” – Dima Jamali, Dean of the College of Business, University of Sharjah, United Arab Emirates

Within each individual lies the potential for greatness — as a leader, as an example, and as a servant to others.  Nonetheless, the discovery process for achieving that potential requires great effort and the willingness to invest in self-analysis and self-improvement in the quest for self-mastery.  Leaders owe a “covenantal” set of duties to themselves, to the world, and to those individuals with whom they work.  In every sense, those who lead most effectively honor a complex set of moral and ethical responsibilities that enable them to fulfill the calling of leadership.  This book offers insights into the nature of the self-discovery process that every great leader goes through and offers encouragement and counsel to those individuals willing to discover the leader within.
