Dan Mulhern’s second book Be Real: Inspiring Stories for Leading at Home and Work continues his remarkable journey showing us all how we can lead more effectively – and enjoy it more.
In Be Real, Dan offers short written pieces that break open leadership and offer practical angles on how to do it better. Although he’s married to a Governor and has functioned in very high level settings, Dan focuses on the aspects of leadership that cut completely across the various levels of authority. Thus, it comes as no surprise that he begins this book with a chapter on Family, which he calls “the most important place where any of us will ever lead.” From there he gets to key practices of leadership through chapters on ego and on energy, on challenge and on spirit – always mixing inspiration with authenticity and common sense strategies.
“Mulhern shares deeply personal experiences and from them, draws penetrating insights about the nature of leadership and relationships. His conversational tone provides easy access to the profound wisdom on every page. Save a return trip to the bookstore and buy a copy for yourself, your boss, your employees, your spouse and each of your children today.”
“There is no one better at presenting the life of everyday leaders than Dan Mulhern. No one. Be Real is full of real stories of real leaders doing real things. The stories will make you laugh, cry, and cheer. Be Real is a must-read for every citizen-leader.”
