As a leader, are you feeling burnt out, done in, used up, worn down, spread too thin in the thick of it all? You are certainly not alone. A group of 16 of us became concerned by how many leaders are struggling to find the energy they need to lead, and we collaborated online to address the situation. We have written a book to share stories from our own leadership journeys, the struggles we have faced and the lessons we learned. Energize Your Leadership is now available on Amazon. For more information go to EnergizeYourLeadership.net
Our hope is that in the book you will find a message you can relate to, and that you will be inspired and energized. But more importantly we have designed the book to help you find energy within yourself, for that is where your greatest source of energy lies.
For me personally the area of greatest concern is servant leadership. It saddens me to see servant leaders who think they’re supposed to be exhausted, that somehow this is a requirement for servant leadership. It’s not. No one becomes more from someone else becoming less. Servant leadership is enriching and ENERGIZING!
Whether you are seeking to energize your own leadership, want to help a friend who is feeling drained or are just looking to give your leadership a boost, I invite you to read the book. You can read it from beginning to end or you can select a topic of interest to you and start there, either way works. And if you have any thoughts to share we would love to hear from you. Be energized and lead on!

Svt-Leadership will be the basis of a keynote address I have the honor to give to a group of about 145 high school kids in a couple weeks as they start a Leadership Camp at a local school.
