About This Book
Navigate uncharted waters with visionary and inspirational leadership
After a successful career in the US Navy, retired Rear Admiral Danelle Barrett knows plenty about effective, motivational leadership, and now she’s sharing it with anyone who strives to be a bold change leader.
As Barrett learned in the military, strong leadership is inherently about people and behavior, not formulas and complex theory. The hallmarks of great leaders are their vision, tenacity, integrity, and thoughtful mentorship of others. Barrett imparts her experience through practical advice for leaders in any industry and the best examples she’s learned from the remarkable leaders she’s served with in the navy. She also includes plenty of wit via engaging “Sea Stories”—anecdotes told by sailors, chiefs, and officers, often embellished over time—that have humor, heart, and valuable lessons.
Leadership is not complicated, but it is deliberate. It can be summed up in these basic principles:
• Inspire and connect
• Find three positives
• Don’t be a jerk
Becoming a fearless agent of change is particularly relevant today as we face the unprecedented and exponential pace of technological advancement, and Barrett provides you with the powerful tools you need to succeed and ride the wave of this evolution in whatever industry you work.
