Highlighting Our February 2017 Sponsor: Leaders Made Here

We are pleased to have Leaders Made Here as our Lead Change Group sponsor for February 2017!

Leaders Made Here: Blake’s Story

This month, Mark will be releasing his latest book, Leaders Made Here. This book provides readers a game plan for organizations to create a deep and effective leadership bench.

As Mark explains in the book, every organization dreams of having enough leaders. Yet most take a haphazard or inconsistent approach to leadership development. They either assume they can find new leaders when they need them, or they believe leaders are born, they can’t be made. The consequences of this thinking are devastating, creating a perpetual shortfall of high caliber leaders; yet without them, no organization can thrive. The good news: this problem is solvable.

To bring his ideas to life, Miller uses the story of Blake, a new CEO, and Charles, an old friend and colleague, as they search for best practices from around the world to ensure a continuous supply of their most precious asset: leaders. Blake and his team then translate their findings into a practical plan that any organization can use to create a leadership culture that will ensure a sustainable competitive advantage and long-term success.

Mark has written other insightful leadership books, including The Secret: What Great Leaders Know and Do. In 2011, he released The Secret of Teams, outlining the key principles that enable some teams to outperform the all the rest. Great Leaders Grow: Becoming a Leader for Life came next in 2012, followed by The Heart of Leadership in October 2013, the 10th Anniversary Edition of The Secret in September 2014, and Chess Not Checkers: Elevate Your Leadership Game in April 2016.

Mark Miller Leads

In addition to writing, Mark loves speaking to leaders. Over the years, he’s traveled extensively around the world teaching for numerous international organizations. His theme is always the same: encouraging and equipping leaders. His work with Chick-fil-A gives him a deep well of experience from which to draw in his teaching work. He serves Chick-fil-A as the Vice President of Leadership Development.

He’s been married to his high school sweetheart, Donna, for more than 30 years, and they have two sons, a daughter-in-law, and a beautiful granddaughter.

We are excited that Mark will be sharing a webinar with us in March. Please keep an eye on the Weaving Influence events page for more information.
