I have just decided to imbibe the habit of daily reading, so today i stepped into the bookshop and after minutes of scanning through names of books, the only book that caught my attention from the stand was “The 360Degree Leader”.
“The 360 degree leader” closely describe as “the all rounder leader” in Nigeria context reminds of my dream of becoming a master of all and the fear i carried along daily toward achieving this feat.
DON’T WAIT FOR THAT PROMOTION! START LEADING NOW… RIGHT WHERE YOU ARE! boldly written at the back cover of the book convene me more that i was going for the right book, SO I STARTED THERE, RIGHT WHERE I WAS.
I hope you’ll be here with me daily as i quote amazing contents from my first book.
