We're just a few weeks from the publication of my book, Outward Bound Lessons To Live A Life of Leadership. The "lessons" are told through the stories of fifteen extraordinary people. They range in age from a now sophomore in college who was 16 when she launched her first non-profit to a man in his eighties who served in the first class of the Peace Corps. The lessons reflect an approach to walking in the world that I call "Expeditionary Leadership."
Author and master coach Richard Leider, who wrote the foreward for my book, put it this way: "The Outward Bound motto--To Serve, to Strive, and Not to Yield--has always struck a deep chord within me. And, if there is one great secret to becoming an Expeditionary Leader, it is to never give up on giving--to serve."
Universally everyone I spoke with while researching this book referenced the motto. These values: serving, striving, and not yielding, are the core of the lessons that I learned from my years of working with Outward Bound. And they create the framework for the lessons that the book provides.
I'd like you to meet these intrepid Expeditionary Leaders. So for the next few weeks I will be introducing you to them and sharing a bit of their amazing stories with you. And if you stay connected you might just get a sneak peak or a sneak listen to the book. Expeditionary Leadership is an invitation to a remarkable journey-one that will bring you to the best of humanity, and to the best of yourself. Won't you join me?
