So many of the stories resonate with my daily struggles as a leader and it was good to affirm the path I'm on and learn new ways to become a better leader.
This book will be added to my "must read" list for friends, family and colleagues.
Also a great book on setting and achieving goals and leadership - the lessons that were learned along the way by the author.
Easy to read and I was left with much admiration for the author.
