Book Synopsis:
Although there are many great books discussing traditional leadership, Beware the Purple People Eaters takes a slightly different view––effective leadership of others begins first with leading yourself. Through the incorporation of personal observations, life experience and collective history, Beware the Purple People Eaters encourages readers to consider a more introspective view of the necessary attributes of successful leadership, beginning with the lessons our parents taught us. Leadership is more than just buzzwords and metaphors; it’s about the values of imagination, resilience, integrity, self-discipline and character (attributes sometimes too quickly dismissed as “old-fashioned”). In today’s trying times, this book makes a compelling case that these virtues are definitely worth revisiting. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself reflecting on your personal leadership style, life experiences and hard-won lessons. Like the characters from the Wizard of Oz, you may discover that what you went looking for in the first place was within you all along.
