Essential Lessons on Leadership
Being a great leader is not easy for anyone, and for African Americans it can be even more challenging. Leading While Black draws attention to and provides solutions for African Americans who are in leadership positions, and those who aspire to be. From Martin Luther King Jr to Barack Obama, Black leaders have faced leadership challenges and obstacles other ethnicities do not. While many strides have been made regarding equality and opportunities, black leaders still face a huge array of new and old challenges from negative perceptions, stereotypes, and a lack of support in the workplace and society. By sharing lessons learned from his exemplary military and corporate careers, Matt Drayton addresses many of the new tests black leaders face. Matt focuses on new leadership challenges from technology to social media, and inspiring young professionals. The strategies and lessons in this book can be applied by anyone, and is an excellent resource for all current and future leaders.
