In You Are a Leader, Joe Bandra explains that we are all God’s children, and as such, we were born to lead and be successful; but he is talking of a true leader, one that is followed because of his/her presence or spirit. He also reminds us that one who achieves a leader’s presence does not humiliate others, but respects the value of the individual.
He teaches us that the hallmark of true presence is selflessness, and that presence knows no fear. It doesn’t seek anything from others, and it is unburdened. A leader who realizes presence functions with more ease and less stress. In a world full of stress, this is good news to me. The way that a true leader can influence those who are under him/her is powerful. It can lead to a great working environment. This transforms any team into a successful group, be it at home with one’s family, at work or with friends.
It was a pleasure to read this book; it is well versed and enlightening. I enjoy the easy language that will be understandable to any person in any walk of life. It is easy to follow, makes sense and helps us see the potential within us.
This is a must have book for any person who is in a leadership position, be it at home, work, in the community or world. The book is small, just large enough to deliver a huge punch to the significance of a great leader. It also empowers any human being to become the best he/she can be, while making a big difference in the world around us. I recommend it for readers from preteens to adults.
