The key premise for this book is that the best leaders are those who stay connected to their communities, the people they love, and to themselves. The author, Stew Friedman, crafted this philosophy as he worked to advance his own career, cultivate a fulfilling family life, and become a vital part of the greater community. Over the past thirty years he has evolved his thinking to the point where he has become the “go-to” professor at the Wharton School in the territory of leadership development. To me, this is a must read for all leaders who aspire to advance their career journey within the context of cultivating a meaningful life journey.
I have come to know Stew over the past few years and his authenticity on this front is beyond reproach. I suggest you take advantage of the opportunity to get to know him and yourself through his work.
