Leadership Is Dead

I recently finished reading Leadership Is Dead: How Influence is Reviving It by Jeremie Kubicek. I was originally introduced to Jeremie at the Chick-fil-a Leadercast in May. He is the founder and CEO of GiANT Impact.

I have to admit I wanted to read the book based on the title. It intrigued me to see what a CEO of a Christian based organization would write about leadership.

He gives an action plan for making leadership come alive in you:

  1. Give trust to become trustworthy.

  2. Become credible, not just smart.

  3. Be intentional in your influence.

  4. Break through your walls of self-preservation.

  5. Pursue relationship before opportunity.

  6. Give yourself away.

  7. Become significant in your impact.

I loved Jeremie's transparency in his stories and how he wove his action plan into his life's experiences. Good stuff!
