Caroline described her life as ordinary. She and her husband, Greg, lived a comfortable life in a large house in a quaint coastal New England town north of Boston. Her two grown daughters lived nearby. To alleviate her boredom, she had her best friend, Noel, a woman still as wild as she was when they met in college, who entertained Caroline with her tales of world travels and romantic encounters. And so life went on…until one day, Caroline returned from walking her dog to find her life turned upside down. She was suddenly immersed in a terrifying mystery and nothing would ever be the same again.

But it can be hard to know where to start. We wait to be told to lead, or until we're promoted to justify our ability. We don't have to wait. We can make the decision to lead in whatever way makes sense for us. We can further enhance our leadership development through expanding our awareness, by taking initiative to practice and then looking to those you trust, to those you lead, and to yourself to evaluate your efforts.

Through the author's real-life stories, research, and practice, this book provides detailed ways you can develop your Leadership Brand and map your decisions to support it within all aspects of your life in living a Leadership Lifestyle. Discover what's limiting your leadership potential and where you can truly find ways to lead in your life. This book is also for those of you who sometimes need a reminder about how you can take action from within the trap of mediocrity directly through your decisions.
