What do you do when you feel lost as a leader?
Always Growing tackles a common leadership challenge: How to successfully motivate, develop, and empower a diverse group of people to work together and achieve remarkable results.David has risked so much. Accepting his first leadership role at Trendex has meant uprooting his family and leaving behind a comfortable and secure position. The only upside may be that he is moving back to the place he called home as a boy - a place where his sister, Kelly, still resides and operates a thriving garden center. David quickly realizes that he is in trouble. He has taken responsibility for a division that is destined for the chopping block if he doesn't soon figure out how to motivate his employees, prioritize their work, and unify them as a team. Sharing his concerns with Kelly leads to a very interesting revelation...
Can Kelly's proven method for growing plants show him the way to grow his team? Always Growing is a warm and witty guide to becoming a stronger leader, whether you have been leading for two days or two decades. This clever gardening analogy will lead you and your team to a bountiful harvest.
