Buy the Book
As a left-handed person, I saw things differently which helped me grow as a leader and a visionary. This book is written from my perspective and experiences as a “lefty.” It chronicles some of the challenges and uncomfortable moments that I faced that forced me to think outside of the box. While this book speaks to the trying times and triumphs as a left-handed leader, it is a must-read for both right-handed and left-handed leaders who are searching for proven techniques and alternatives for how to be an innovative and effective leader.
This book is for the leader who wants to grow and explore other possibilities while leading an organization. As a Divine Daughter inspired and led by God, I wrote this book to share the radical leadership strategies and constructs birthed from the realization that being viewed as different does not mean you’re deficient.
