‘Leadership: Taking the High Road’ looks at positive leadership and toxic leadership, emphasizing those principles and actions needed for success at any level of leadership. The reader quickly realizes he or she has a personal stake in being an affirming, standards-based leader. The book challenges (to include providing exercises at the end of most chapters) the reader to look inside his or her soul in terms of personal leadership – and to take appropriate action to lead with distinction. Whether you are CEO of a multibillion dollar corporation, working in a company mailroom, running a small business, or chairing a community project, read this book. It should end up with penciled notes in the margins and smudged, often used pages.
