So who’s an author whose books I most look out for? Mark Miller is right about the top of
the list. His new book, Leaders Made Here, was just released and I happen to be hosting his blog this week.
So many leadership books talk about theories . . . sorry, dozed off there for a second. Mark writes in a way that keeps your interest and makes it easier to sink in. Want to learn quickly? Tell stories. That’s exactly what Mark does. Through parables, he tells leadership stories that strike a cord. Here, we learn about building leaders – not one at a time or as needed – so there’s always a leadership pipeline . . . a real culture of successful leadership.
My favorite quote from the book sums it up and goes like this: “A leadership culture exists when leaders are routinely and systematically developed, AND when you have a surplus of leaders.”
