Our life teaches us so many lessons that we can't even count. If we were to grasp and learn from these lessons, we would be greater managers and leaders. And did you know that those lessons that we're learning are not necessarily only for us but to help others? The inspirational memoir, Inspired, Not Retired: Leadership Lessons from Father to Son by Burl Randolph Jr, gives an up-close-and-personal account of the life lessons that he learned from his father that he has passed on to his sons and now wants to share with readers. This book is easy to read and is broken down into three sections: The Insight, The Inspiration, and The Application. The reader will learn over fifteen principles in being a leader of quality from humility, responsibility, and trust to faith. With the combination of words of wisdom from his father and military experience, the author displays best practices for leaders in weathering the various storms that life has to offer.
"The world needs positive stories about familial relationships, hope, and promise created by great parenting, regardless of race or ethnicity," says the author, and this book offers this and more. It was not only these words that sold me and created within me an appreciation of the essence of the material contained but also how the author delivered the information was key. Did you know that in various aspects of our lives we're all managers and leaders? To be effective in these roles it takes creativity, open-mindedness, and willingness to lead even when it's difficult. In Inspired, Not Retired, Burl Randolph Jr provides space for notes to enhance your learning experience. Remember, retirement is not the end; it's only the beginning. Enjoy.
