This week I decided to give away a couple of chapters of my new book, The Trojan Horse of Leadership: Battling the Enemy We All Face. I've attached the opening two chapters (the Introduction and Chapter 1), and hopefully it will entice you to get the book.
Yes, it's a shameless plug, but the bigger and more important reason for luring you in this way is because I believe so much in the power of great leadership. Maybe its because we continue to witness leadership failures that has me so concerned about the state of leadership overall.
Like so many, I'm expecting much more from those who are given the responsibility of leadership. This is not to say that I've mastered this. Far from it. In fact, the book in some ways is a byproduct of the hard lessons I've learned from my own personal failures and missteps. But if you're a leader that truly cares about leading with integrity, anything that builds your self-awareness is a win for everyone.
Lastly, this is not rocket science. The path towards viable leadership that is characterized by integrity, humility, and strength of purpose is not easy, but it is the gold standard to which we should all aspire.
You can get the free chapters here The Trojan Horse of Leadership-Preview Chapters. Would love to hear your thoughts on the subject, or even your own insights as you interact with these chapters.
Comments will be approved before showing up.

There's nothing like a pandemic to bring out the best and the worst in people. I can't say I'm surprised, these things have a way of showing people's true colours and where their confidence, or can I say, suspicions, lie.
What is disheartening is what I'm seeing and hearing from those who claim to be followers of Jesus, Worse yet, are those who hold leadership platforms who are using them in ways that is, at least in my mind, not only disheartening, but downright embarrassing.

This is my newest grandson, Noah. I already have scads of pictures of him even though he just turned two months old, but this one is my favourite.
For a time I couldn't figure out why it rose to the top, but after one gruelling day of trying to manage life in the midst of a pandemic it suddenly hit me.
