BIG News! – January, 2015

Leading the Way – is now available in its 3rd edition – with new stories of young people who have made a difference in their lives, communities and the world; up-dated information on leadership and new quotes – 26 additional pages. Utilizing the skills of a professional designer has given the book a great new look.

While the book  was written for Generation Y (13-34 year olds) to help them discover and build their leadership skills it has been helpful to everyone who has read it. It’s based on work Dave has done with the Rotary sponsored RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Award) program for 18 – 25 year olds, which he has been involved with for the past 31 years.

The book is available in print and includes five different sections, guiding the reader through what leadership is, helping them define their own style of leadership, identifying how they can obtain additional skills then challenges them to set goals and gives advice on how to achieve them.

The book also has a companion Leading the Way – Action Guide (available in a downloadable word format) that provides space for the reader to respond to the “27 Action Steps” in the book plus an additional 19 bonus action steps.

The book in print and action guide in downloadable word format are available by clicking on the icons at the bottom of this page.
