This is a must read for anyone trying to make change these days… It is filled with amazing, practical stories about how to expand your influence and power. Moving the conversation from leadership being about position to “leadership being about influence” is critical in an era when we need people of all types to step up and make change happen.
Take The Lead offers a fascinating glimpse into Washington politics and it is punctuated with some telling stories. I’ve always been a firm believer in the notion that if you’re going to write about leadership, you have to have had some actual experience leading. As you will discover when you read Betsy’s book, she has.

I wanted to let you know I had a particularly difficult performance review to conduct today and reading your book helped me handle it in the most positive and productive way possible. I’m sure you hear all the time from folks what a positive force you are in their lives. I thought it would be nice for you to see the impact directly of what you’ve brought into mine. Everyone on my team is getting a copy of your book!
Take the Lead reminds us of common sense tips on dealing with and leading people. There are many ideas in the book that I learned and are new to me while other ideas are known to me but I fail to put them in practice. Reading this book was a good review of what makes a good leader.
