About the Book

It doesn’t matter if you’re the lowest person on the totem pole at work—you are a leader. Whether it’s on the job, within your family, at church, in clubs, or as a friend, you are called to be a leader on a daily basis. In this book of African animal fables, John Andrew Carroll, a successful CEO who grew up surrounded by wildlife and war in Zimbabwe, explores how to: • be a trusted and compassionate human being as you lead and serve others; • develop team members who are engaged, enthusiastic, and inspired; • learn, grow, and adapt as a leader, and help others do the same. These lessons and more are shared in a series of captivating, short fables that feature a self-doubting lion, a belligerent rhinoceros, a cute and kind meerkat, a curious young elephant, a conceited leopard, and a chattering monkey. Each fable highlights a key aspect of what makes an effective leader in today’s world. Full of wisdom, wit, and simple pleasure, this book is a celebration of what it means to be human in a changed and changing world.
