Leaders. Lions and the Hunt for Team Excellence

Hot off the press, our newest book is as bold and energizing as its cover. This is professional development you can sink your teeth into.

These well-honed instincts allow lions to dominate their environment and provide a blueprint for applying them to ours.

Leaders are always looking for creative ways to improve teamwork and achieve more. This book fuses the lion’s secrets of success with real-world leadership challenges that organizations face every day. The result is a fast-paced storyline offering practical insights into developing a more effective, productive and cohesive team. It is an ideal resource for professionals and organizations wanting to sharpen leadership skills and promote high performance.
