Leadership Is an Inside Job
by Jim T. Priest, J.D.
As an attorney, Jim Priest has experienced and witnessed what it takes to succeed in leadership and also how to fail. His observations and first-hand experiences have led Priest to believe a leader’s internal character is the key for both success and failure of the individual and the organizations they lead. In this book he shares twenty-one leadership principles and in practical down to earth advice, encourages everyone to see themselves as a leader whether they have a title or not, and to develop the character it takes to lead effectively.
“Jim’s practical perspective and ability to simplify the core principles of a leader is outstanding and hits the bullseye! I’m thrilled his insights will now be available for everyone.”
Anne Bramman, Chief Financial Officer, Nordstrom
