What others are saying about When Leaders Are Lost
It is a privilege to endorse 'When leaders are lost' by Dr Glenn Williams, moving beyond disappointment, failure, and hurt to redefine success. I was a director and early investor of LCP Global in those early years as Glenn redefined success and we established a global executive coaching business that was able to connect the whole of one's life into an integrated approach using the five leadership anchors developed by Glenn. In this book, he shares his own lived experience in a powerful and vulnerable way that encourages leaders to pick themselves up and use setbacks not as a reason to give up but as a catalyst to lead from a deep experience and empathy that takes them to greater heights.
He shares how we can use our personal script to find practical things that can create positive change and new momentum as we start to explore what exciting new goals lay ahead. There is always a risk and it is hard to get back on the horse when you have been thrown to the ground, but a true leader knows that this is the price of success and others are depending on you.
It reminds me of that Shakespeare quote from Julius Caesar where daring leadership is required. "There is a tide in the affairs of men which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune; omitted, all the voyage of their life is bound in shallows and in miseries. On such a full sea we are now afloat, and we must take the current when it serves, or lose our fortunes." When Leaders Are Lost is just the inspiration to pick ourselves up and take the tide.
