About the Book

Leadership is not a role reserved for presidents, prime ministers, and CEOs. All of us have the opportunity to be leaders, inspiring others while encouraging them to improve themselves in so many ways. Parents, managers, coaches, union leaders, church volunteers, and many others can be incredibly uplifting and inspiring. It’s really not that complicated. What will you do to be a better leader for your workplace, your family, or your community?

About the Author

Garth has spent close to forty years in senior leadership roles in healthcare and municipal services. He has also worked and consulted in the private sector. When combined with his BA, MBA, and diplomas in coaching, conflict management and applied organizational development, he has developed a deep understanding of the nature of the workplace as well as the attributes of the leaders working there. He has also done extensive personal research and speaks regularly at conferences and workshops on the nature of leadership.

Garth has written two books on the topic of leadership and has this to say about leadership for any of us:

“Leadership is not a kind of birthright or something that comes with a title. It is defined by our actions, and I have come to discover that every one of us has the chance to be a leader. For some, that happens at work, but for others, it happens at home or in the community. The important thing to remember is that leadership does not need to be complicated but rather, so often, it simply involves the application of a judicious amount of common sense.”
