Book In The Works: The Leadership Journey

I swore I’d never write another book after finishing 1300 pages of Windows Developer Power Tools with my co-author James Avery.

Famous last words.

When the kind folks at CodeMash asked if I could put together a four hour workshop on Leadership, I figured I’d better get some solid content laid out to make sure the class wasn’t just boring anecdotes of mine. I needed something more focused, and something with some practical put-this-to-use-tomorrow kind of ideas.

Apropos, let me introduce to you The Leadership Journey. This book contains the original Leadership 101 blogposts and will end up with a lot of new content. There will also be practical exercises to help you focus in on a few key things.

What’s the books goal? To help you answer a few key questions:

  • Do I want to be a leader?
  • What are my strengths and how can I make the best of them?
  • What are my weaknesses, and how can I best mitigate them?
  • How can I make my team be awesome?

I’m publishing the book on LeanPub with a recommended price of $9.49. I hope you’ll have a look at it.

What would you find helpful in your own leadership journey? Leave me feedback here in the comments, or over on the book’s LeanPub page.
