Welcome to Leadership Brown Bag! I started this site because I had several family members and friends talk to me about leadership. As I listened to my family members and friend, I noticed that each had professional struggles that came from poor leadership. Having been in the Army for a little over nine years, I have seen several great leaders who I tried to emulate.
Leadership is a difficult art. It requires mastery at all levels, but it is extremely difficult to navigate. You know a good and bad leader when you see one, but how do you become a good leader?
With all of the advice out there, I wanted to create a space where people can find answers to their leadership struggles. The way I do that is through the books I have read. I enjoy reading and listening to books because I can open my mind to new ideas. My hope is that you’ll be able to do the same.
I’ll write a review for every book I read. I want you to read books that can help you navigate this difficult leadership world. Also, writing book reviews can help you to see which books can best support you in your leadership journey.
“Leading” a Life
I want you to gain valuable insight into a problem you’re having as a manager, leader, boss, or whatever job you’re doing. We are all leaders in our lives, whether it be at home, in a volunteer organization, or at work.
We use the term “leading” a life, so let’s make it that way. I hope you find valuable insight within the confines of this site and apply it to your life.
If you have an experience to share, an answer to provide, or a comment to give, feel free to leave them below. Thank you!
All the best,
