Overview

Who is successful? A person with a great job and lifestyle? An entrepreneur who offers a great service or product? A nonprofit leader who makes life better for tens of thousands? A musician who makes people stand up and dance?

Success means many different things. In Leading the Way Up Mt. Olympus, Steve Broe has talked to people who used leadership skills to become successful. He points out that success can be the attainment of a goal, the gain of a new skill, or the chance to help others. For many people, success is all of these things.

Based on two years of interviews with CEOs, speakers, marketing geniuses, and others, Steve Broe answers the question, "How do people use leadership skills to become successful?" This book reveals those leadership behaviors which are most often associated with success and contains the voice of the success informants to make the point vividly.
