Leaders are neither born nor made. Leaders are summoned. They are called into existence by circumstances, and those who rise to the occasion are leaders. That is Leonard Sweet's revolutionary definition of leadership that he so compellingly makes in his new book, Summoned to Lead. This book approaches leadership as an art form as well as a science, and employs the legacy of Ernest Shackleton, the famous polar explorer, as a means of helping readers develop a leadership cachet and a leadership soul.
A retelling of the Ernest Shackleton story to showcase the fine arts of leadership that emerged from his failed expedition.
