After my guest lecture at Dr. Brad Allen’s course “Applied Corporate Responsibility” (offered over the summer at Harvard’s Business School), I was approached by a young woman from Italy, Ms. Talita Costanzo.  She said that a phrase from my book had inspired her.  She told me that the phrase “Lead from wherever you stand” had so moved her that she had it inscribed on her shoes (see the photo below).


When I decided to sit down to write what I had learned in my career, my goal was that it would help others.  All I can say, is that her reaction and others who have told me that this book helped them has been the best reward I could have ever hoped for.


Tweet, e-mail, call or use your communication mode of choice to let me know what you got out of the book.
