Great leaders preside over growth, prosperity and victory. Bad ones drive their organizations into the trash heap of history. As a result, we spend billions each year to train our future leaders how to act, function and behave - as though there is a magic algorithm or button that will trigger the next Steve Jobs or Einstein. In doing so, we miss the boat. Leadership is not what you do, so much as, what you are. You have to BE the leader, not just act like one. And of all the things to be, the most important is to be the dreamer of dreams, the possessor of “the idea” --- because leadership is the act of getting a group to move from A to B --- and if you haven’t figured out where B is, the sheep just wander around randomly bumping into one another. But if your idea, your B, is simply to pursue a number that is a little bigger, or smaller than last year’s -- well, you’ve just condemned your organization to chase its tail. Is that really what you want to do with your life? Or would you rather grab humanity by the ears and redirect its vision, thoughts and values; inventing new ways to govern and interact, stepping over fear on your way to tomorrow? Being a leader - every day. --- How do you come up with THAT kind of idea? Based on the lives of people who changed their corner of the world, and thereby ours, for all eternity --- this book uncovers a handful of traits and actions that fuel and guide The Quest for Truth & Glory. The result is a handbook on how to change the world.

About the Author:

Joe Anderson has served as personal advisor and counselor to more than 60 CEOs, controlling over $8 billion a year in sales and 3,500 employees - in large measure, via his chairmanship with Vistage - formerly known as The Executive Committee (TEC). He’s been doing that job since 1995, along with occasional public speaking and a pretty fair amount of writing. Prior to that, he successfully ran an organization himself, then went to grad school to find out why it had gone so well. He emerged with a PhD and taught for 10 years in some of the leading business schools in America; getting voted Professor of the Year at several of them.
