I got my first lessons in Leadership from Scott way back when he was a 12 year old “green star” cadet and I was a 19 year old “green” OCdt! He shares real world and practical advise to help you grow from a solid and proficient manager to the inspiring leader business needs!

“Everything rises or falls,” states John Maxwell, “on leadership.” If this is true--and I believe it is--then every leader must sense the urgency to further develop their skill set. I appreciate Scott McCarthy's passion to help leaders do just that. He says, “in leadership the moment you stop learning is the moment you stop being useful for your organization.” Whether it’s through his eBook, The Nine Foundations of Leadership, or his podcasts, I have found a wealth of information that challenges me to become the best leader that I can be. And you will, too.
