The Magic of Empowerment: My Journey in Servant Leadership (Paperback)
**TAP INTO THE MAGIC OF EMPOWERMENT **
Empowerment can come from many outside influences -- your friends, family, and business associates who believe in you and support your goals. But it can also come from within, when you dare to take risks, learn how to leverage your own personal creativity, continue persevering in the face of adversity, remain open to new and energizing challenges, and allow inspiration and motivation to recharge your spirit and make progress toward your goals.
Veteran business leader J. Derrill Rice understands empowerment through and through -- because he's benefited from it his entire life. And he's always made sure it benefited those around him as well.
Now, in his new book, The Magic of Empowerment: My Journey in Servant Leadership, Rice explores how empowerment fueled his many achievements from growing up the child of a single mom to becoming the CEO of a number of successful manufacturing companies. More than a memoir, Rice uses compelling storytelling to not only shine a spotlight on how empowerment through servant leadership has brought him a multitude of rewards but also how it can hone your leadership skills and spur your personal growth.
From his transformation from high school nerd to captain of the football team, to rising from the ranks to be recognized as an outstanding business leader, Rice explores the many ways any of us can be empowered to reach our objectives, through personal and revealing anecdotes filled with humor, wisdom, and surprises. To Rice, empowerment truly is magical -- and he should know since he began studying magic as a teenager. It's a skill that has actually added to his professional empowerment, as he once dazzled Edsel Ford, the then-head of the Ford Motor Company, by making a car disappear right before his eyes.
You'll hear about that and more (like the time he turned a corporate presentation into his own version of The Tonight Show ) in The Magic of Empowerment. More importantly, you'll discover how to unlock the secrets of empowerment in your own life to create meaningful progress in your personal and professional life.
