"This book will be one of the most, if not the most, pivotal leadership books you'll ever read." – Andy Stanley

"Read this book! The marketplace is full of leadership messages, but this one is a stand out." – Louie Giglio

Are you letting your lack of authority paralyze you?

One of the greatest myths of leadership is that you must be in charge in order to lead. Great leaders don't buy it. Great leaders lead with or without the authority and learn to unleash their influence wherever they are.

With practical wisdom and humor, Clay Scroggins will help you nurture your vision and cultivate influence, even when you lack authority in your organization. And he will free you to become the great leader you want to be so you can make a difference right where you are. Even when you're not in charge.

Great book Shows the similarities between Jesus and leadership. Someone that does not have a position of authority can be in charge by how many people they can influence.

I have been given a preview copy of this book and while I certainly appreciate the generosity of the author, my review is intended to be completely unbiased.

This book is tremendous for the person that yearns to make an impact and lead, the person who has some authority to lead, or the apex authority figure in any organization. Each of these people have influence, regardless of position & authority. Clay helps the reader learn how to leverage influence for effective leadership through Clay’s own uniquely compelling and humorous brand of insight. As a leader with both influence & authority, this has helped bring clarity to my understanding of leaders up and down the org chart in my organization. Buy some highlighters and READ. THIS. BOOK.

A great read for all, but ESPECIALLY those entering the workforce or starting a new position!

[As a disclaimer: I signed up to be a pre-reader for this book after hearing a podcast by Clay on the topic of “HTLWYNIC”. I was pleasantly surprised by the depth of the additional content that he added beyond the basics of the leadership podcast. I can honestly say that this is a book I will come back to again and again because the concepts are vital to becoming a great leader AND a great follower.]

Practical steps for anyone who thinks they might be a leader.

Whether you are at the top of an organization or an entry level position, this book will change the way you view your leadership. Clay Scroggins provides actionable steps for everyone to “start asking yourself what type of leader you want to be tomorrow. And start becoming that leader today.”
