Week 183- #EntrepreneurialLeadership

Few mentors are as generous, supportive, and really rise to the level of “sponsor” in one’s professional life. Joel Peterson has been that and so much more. I deeply admire his personal code of ethics- subscribe to his philosophy that trust is the currency that binds teams and families and organizations of all shapes and sizes- and frankly love his latest book, Entrepreneurial Leadership, so much that it’s on the syllabus for my course at the University of Chicago’s Booth Business School entitled Women as Investors, Directors, CEOs and Executives.
What I love about it the most is that Joel starts with a deeply personal story about almost losing his wife and life partner of a half-century when she got lost in the mountains of Utah on a hike. He extrapolates the metaphor of hiking to the journey of entrepreneurship, which, based upon my life experience to date, is completely apt. More, he breaks down the qualities of entrepreneurial leadership into bite sized vignettes and actionable approaches, which I find valuable every time I revisit them, and I know my MBA students do too.
Most fun, Joel recently converted the book to a video book that includes animation and his own narration, which I found completely captivating. As such, I thought you might too.
You can find the version of Entrepreneurial Leadership Joel just released on  LIT Videobooks (https://litvideobooks.com/explore) . May it serve as some inspiring end of summer reading/watching!
