“If you want to sit still while some self-appointed guru explains how you can become the leader of your very own company, country, or religion in three easy steps, then you’ve come to the wrong place. But if you want to go on a journey with a wise and inspiring guide, a scientist and teacher who has been the personal navigator for thousands of successful leaders over a quarter of a century, then there is no other place to be.”
— Daniel Gilbert, Edgar Pierce Professor of Psychology, Harvard University, and author, Stumbling on Happiness

Instead of focusing on stories of others’ leadership, Linda Ginzel has written a book about your development as a leader.

For a very low price, Ginzel will take you on a journey where you make your own choices about creating effective leadership actions. She will not make you a leader. Rather, she will guide you to choices that will allow you to lead- and to lead effectively. Ginzel uses ample behavioral science in the journey, but the unique contribution of this book is her passion for providing you a pathway to make great choices about whether, when, and how to lead.
