I wanted a certain kind of book to buy, towards leadership development. I struggled to find an all- inclusive book on leadership, career and the problems in your journey to the top with good examples. This is arguably because ideas have been ‘scattered’ in different books by different authors. Fortunately, that is my motivation to write mine, because everything you need to advance your career with, have been pieced together for your use.
I have learnt through the process and I also allowed myself to go through the mill. The difficult parts of my career have been the most beautiful times of my life. This book comes at a time when officers struggle to find their way to the top and also at a time when Executives struggle to understand what goes on in the minds of officers. Bridge this gap and don’t let anyone know that you are reading my book because that’s your only secret.
Congratulations for buying one.
