We all have innate leadership potential. To maximize it, we must do much more than develop performance-based skills, the authors assert.

They offer engaging real-life examples to show how we can grow into our true potential as leaders and inspire us to "make a difference in the 21st century-in our families, our communities, our companies, our government, and even our world."
