Book Review: The Leadership Mandate by @dbonleadership

Today is an exciting day for my friend Dan Black.  His new eBook launches today on Amazon.

The Leadership Mandate provides 10 practical and essential elements for developing leaders.  This book is a helpful refresher for established leaders.  But this book is not just written for people in positions of authority.  The Leadership Mandate provides excellent advice for everyone who is serious about leading others or about leading themselves.

Dan Black has been blogging for quite a while about leadership.  The Leadership Mandate focuses so much of Dan’s great daily blog content into a concise guide that will help you act like a leader.  Dan presents 10 foundational things that will propel people to leading with influence and effectiveness.  The Leadership Mandate teaches, and it challenges leaders to take action – to develop the leader inside you.

The Leadership Mandate is available starting today on for $2.99.  Help my friend Dan out and help yourself out as well.  Go pick up a copy today.  Click the link below to get your copy today.  As a special BONUS, Dan has put together a special package of extra material for anyone who purchases The Leadership Mandate between September 30th and October 7th.  The BONUS package includes six great leadership books and tools (Vision Impact! by Bernard K.

(Please note:  I received a copy of The Leadership Mandate for free in exchange for a review.  I was not required to provide a favorable review.  I truly believe this book can be a helpful reminder to any reader in helping them to take steps to become better leaders – at work, in the community, at church, and at home.  It’s my honor to be part of the launch team for Dan’s new book.
