About the Book :
Successful leaders dont rest on their laurels. Leadership must be a living process, not a title on a business card, and life means growth. As Ken Blanchard and Mark Miller write in the introduction, the path to increased influence, impact, and leadership effectiveness is paved with personal growth.... Our capacity to grow determines our capacity to lead. Its really that simple. Great Leaders Grow shows leaders and aspiring leaders precisely which areas to focus on so they can remain effective throughout their lives.As the book opens, Debbie Brewster, an accomplished leader herself, becomes a mentor to Blake, her late mentors son, as he begins his career. Debbie tells Blake, How well you and I serve will be determined by the decision to grow or not. Will you be a leader who is always ready to face the next challenge? Or will you be a leader who tries to apply yesterdays solutions to todays problems? The latter will ultimately fail. The difference: the decision to grow. And not a short-term decision but a decision to grow throughout your career and throughout your life. This single decision is a game changer for leaders.
