Book Reviews

One-of-a-kind approach

“In the Spirit of Leadership is a surprisingly moving book that goes beyond the usual “how to DO leadership” and gets at the more elusive, “how to BE leadership”. Cheryl’s poems and prose reflect not only her leadership journey, they inspire and gently awaken us to follow our unique path to fulfilling our personal calling as leaders. I have given this book as an executive gift, used it with coaching clients and considered it invaluable as an instructional design tool for my Leadership Adventure programs. I highly recommend both the book and the workbook for their one-of-a-kind approach. Thank you Cheryl for bringing this wonderful work forward!”
