Your Leadership 'Ripple.'

After reading Chris' book, Kevin Kruse, a contributing editor/writer at Forbes, who focuses on writing about wholehearted leadership and employee engagement, posted a new article today on, Ripple: A Field Manual for Leadership that Works

As a leader tasked with seizing new ground and improving an organization’s performance, do you start with the systems, the people, or yourself?

Get out the mirror!

According to leadership expert, Chris Hutchinson, leaders cannot be effective if they don’t begin by understanding their own values, visioning their personal futures, and recognizing their unique strengths and weaknesses.

Kruse goes on to highlight three chapters in the book and then, later in the post, adds:

With an engaging conversational tone and fun, whiteboard-style sketches, he teaches that the secret to leadership is that the power isn’t in the stone. It’s in the ripples. And stone-throwers simply can’t set robust, long-lasting ripples in motion if they’re not starting from a place of self-alignment.

Want to see what Kruse is so excited about? Yeah, we thought you might.
