At home or in the workplace, change is an inevitable fact of life. How we choose to respond to it – as leaders or as followers – determines our personal and professional growth. Growing the Distance is about developing the leader within all of us. This helps us to continue “growing at the speed of change.” A central theme of the book is that leadership is action, not a position. We all need to be leaders regardless of our formal title or role. This starts with inner self leadership and moves outward to influence, guide, support, and lead others. Leadership ultimately shows itself in what we do out there, but it starts in here.
