The Unknown Leader

Book Description

Our world has many obvious leaders: captains of industry, high-achieving academics, CEOs, heads of state, champion athletes. But our world also depends on leaders who are not so obvious. They are all around us, filling crucial roles at every level of society, in all kinds of organizations and in our communities.They've produced results that may not receive much publicity and that sometimes take a long time to come to fruition. These are the unknown leaders who deserve just as much recognition as our famous leaders. This book celebrates these unknown leaders, analyzing what makes a true leader and introducing a new model of leadership - leadership that is not about chasing fame or glory but about contributing to a better society, living a satisfying life, and venturing and taking risks. It's a model of leadership that is relevant to people from every walk of life.
