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 you order your book during this time, you’ll receive:

The Big Blog Push eBook

Are you ready for another installment of Leadership Insights? I recently had the great pleasure of attending the book release party for Kimanzi Constable. His first traditionally published book was released and he had a great party to celebrate.

Kimanzi Constable With Living Or Existing

Kimanzi shares in his new book, Are You Living Or Existing?, how you can take your life from existing to living in 9 steps. They’re not easy but they’re well worth the effort. He can tell you from first hand experience.

He’s gone from working in a job he hated, being unhappy, and wishing for something better to international speaker, selling over 80,000 copies of his books, and quit the job he hated.

This man knows what it takes to move forward in life and lead a living life.

Read the interview and then see how you can receive over $100 in bonuses when you buy his book.

Recently, I had the pleasure of connecting with Brad Lomenick. He’s the Grand Poobah, as his podcast partner Ken Coleman calls him, of the Catalyst Leadership Conference.

Brad’s work has included 5 years at Life@Work Magazine and management consulting with Cornerstone Group. He’s also ridden horses for a living in Colorado. This man has a wide berth of experience. He’s also the author of the soon to be released book The Catalyst Leader.

I hope you’re ready to go deep. Brad really brought it during this interview.

Q1: Brad, could you please share a little about the work Catalyst does and your role with the company?

BL: Catalyst gathers Christian leaders to inspire and equip them to truly be Catalysts in their communities. My role is to lead the organization and provide strategy, vision, brand development, and programming oversight.
