My inspiration to write this book is based on my observation of uninformed and untrained leaders in our society and workforce who impact people’s daily lives. I have seen and experienced leaders who were more harmful than inspirational in families, the military, the labor force, education, and sports. To positively influence people, a leader must have the ability to increase human engagement while leveraging their gifts and talents to get a positive return on investment. There are three attributes that a leader must have in order to achieve these goals:
1. A leader must lead by example.
2. A leader must like and listen to all people to apply the correct leadership style and influence their behavior.
3. A leader must have the ability to write and articulate a specific vision and mission statement plus set performance expectations.
