Look around. Every day, whether you’re on a morning commute to work or even driving through towns on vacation, you may pass neighborhoods that are largely abandoned or underutilized. Perhaps they were great places at one point―but as the economy continues to change and evolve, there becomes a great need for leaders to address these problems, to invoke real-world solutions.
That’s where Dr. Kimberly Townsend hopes to provide answers―to share both her professional and personal experiences to clear a path toward making the world a better place. In Lifecircle Leadership: How Exceptional People Make Every Day Extraordinary, Dr. Townsend shares valuable insight into creating a better environment for all. You’ll learn about:

There is too much negativity in the world today. But does that have to always be the case? Change happens one step at a time and you have to be willing to take that first step. Once you do, the rewards will more than justify your efforts.
