I think one of the main draws I had to this book was the word Leadership. Leadership definition - providing guidance, direction, control, management to a group of people or organization. In life there are so many areas that leadership is essential. In being a mom I deal with leadership every day. In my work setting, I have skills that I teach others how to do or I implement and that shows leadership. I really liked how the book takes you on a journey of Brad's life and how sometimes we need to regroup in order to find our true leadership skills and make sure we aren't just controlling the ship we are sailing, but also enjoying the journey.
H3 Leadership provides a practical road map for implementing and living out the transformational habits of a leader.

These powerful words describe the leader who is willing to work hard, get it done, and make sure it's not about him or her; the leader who knows that influence is about developing the right habits for success.

Here are a few of my highlights...
Life is about decisions. If you want to change, make a decision. Decisions build habits.
Habits create standard operating procedures in your life and are the fuel to get to the finish line.
Believe it or not, learning to share the real you with others will make your family, friends, and staff stronger and more authentic too.
