The Leadership Mandate Releases

September 30, 2013 — 17 Comments

I’m excited for my good friend Dan Black. Today marks the release of his new book The Leadership Mandate.leadership_mandate

Last week I had the great opportunity to sit down and chat with Dan via Google Hangouts. Check out the interview below.

During the Google Chat, we discussed:

What caused us to take a path towards personal development

How mentors/coaches have impacted our lives

I hope this gets you excited for his book. I’ve personally read it and believe it’s a call all leaders need to answer.

During the first week of the book launch, September 30th through October 7th, Dan pulled together 6 great resources that will help you as you journey to be the leader you were meant to be.

  • When I was graduating high school, I had two excellent teachers who mentored me. They took extra time out of their schedules to ensure that I graduated with the requisite credits for the teaching program at university.

    The math teacher I had ended up creating a course JUST FOR ME; Calculus (ugh) and the English teacher I had gave me a piece of advice I’ll never forget.

    Her exact words were: STAND SURE.

    I have “stood sure” ever since. (Practically!)

    • I love your story about your math teacher. We need more teachers like that. How have those experiences changed your life?

      • I was able to get into the program of my choice in university, which enabled me to become a teacher.

        As such, I often went the extra mile for my students.

        I miss teaching them!

        I still stand sure, though, and help others whenever I can!

    • Wise words to stand by! Thank you for sharing part of your amazing story:)

  • I’ve had a few: my Dad, my boss (Craig), my pastor (Brian Jones). I’m so thankful for the mentors/teachers in my life.

    • Nice, sounds like you’ve had quite a few. Never stop having one Jon

  • My dad, and through books Dan Miller. Glad to see you have coaching packages up! Best of luck, there is nothing quite like it.

    • Dan Miller is great! Thank you for taking the time to watch and comment:)

    • Tom, Dan’s one of those mentors of mine that got me going. I found his book and it kicked me into gear. Keep finding great mentors.

  • My Father (relationship), Mike Schieffer (Executive Administrator at the church I attend and 17 year leader with Starbucks), and Michael Hyatt (digital).

    I’d say I have “crowdsourced” mentors from across the internet and book world, something we can do today, that would have been significantly more difficult a few decades ago!

    • That’s great, Jon! Also, good point about “crowdsourcing.” It’s amazing what we can learn from books and online influences. Thank you for sharing.

    • Jon, “crowdsourcing” our mentors is a great way to ensure we have them.

    My mentor/coach is my good friend, TJ Trent. He threw me completely out of my comfort zone. I started working with him on his website half-heartedly believing the leadership message.and ended up a full blown leader.

    Also, I have learned so much watching/listening to John Maxwell.

    • TJ Trent is a great person and leader! Glad he pulled the leader out of you:) Thank you for taking time to watch the interview.

    • Bob, I love TJ. He’s a great leader and he’s doing what we’re called to do: Duplicate and multiply our leadership by creating new (or revealing) leaders.
