From the Inside Flap:

Where is the leadership we need to solve our most pressingcommunity problems? It's all around us. Everyone Leads: BuildingLeadership from the Community Up will inspire readers to see newleadership possibilities within themselves and their communities.It also offers a set of practices that will help leaders be moreeffective at bringing diverse people and groups together to solveproblems. While many leadership books today focus on how to leadorganizations, this book is about how to lead communities.

Paul Schmitz, CEO of Public Allies, shares unique experiencesand lessons his organization has learned from two decades ofidentifying and developing thousands of diverse young leadersacross the country. The book is organized around a new definitionof leadership: (1) It is an action everyone can take, not aposition few hold; (2) it is about taking personal and socialresponsibility to work with others on common goals; and (3) it isthe practice of values that engage diverse individuals and groupsto work together effectively. Not everyone can lead in everycontext, but everyone does have the capacity to step up, takeresponsibility, and work with others to make progress on the issuesthey care about.

With inspiring stories and practical examples, the author shareswhat it means to lead today. He tells the story about how thePublic Allies model emerged (including Michelle Obama's importantrole) and demonstrates the organization's approach throughillustrative stories of its graduates and of his own unusualleadership journey. The author surveys America's democratic andcivil rights history, current trends, and leadership theory todemonstrate how collaboration among citizens has always been coreto social change. The book also delves into five leadership valuesessential today: recognizing and mobilizing assets, diversity andinclusion, teamwork and collaboration, continuous learning, andintegrity.

Everyone Leads offers a hopeful path for citizens, policymakers,and nonprofit organizations wanting to build and engage the diverseleadership our communities and our democracy badly need.
