Full Description

Porchlight Business Book of the Year Awards Longlist Nominee "THE MOST UNLIKELY OF PEOPLE, IN THE MOST IMPROBABLE OF CIRCUMSTANCES,
CAN BECOME EXTRAORDINARY." WE NEED MORE LEADERS.
From socio-political chaos and workplace disruption to the climate change crisis, we have
never needed people with the skill and will to collaborate to create a better world more
than now. We need people who are willing to fill the leadership void. People who will
embrace the influence they have. People who believe in improving society and workplace
culture - not only because it makes life better, but because it is proven to yield positive
results.
The Promises of Giants is a challenge to anyone who aspires to make a difference in their
environment. Over fourteen promises, it seamlessly intertwines personal anecdotes and
workplace and social observation with the latest research, to provide practical, proven tips
and strategies to empower you to maximize your own potential and inspire others. It is
not a self-help book. It is a how-to guide for winning, rooted in the belief that the most
unlikely of people, in the most improbable of circumstances, can become extraordinary.
John Amaechi well understands the responsibilities and potential that come with being a
giant. The Promises of Giants is the product of a lifetime spent observing and studying
effective leadership - from accompanying his mother's visits to her dying patients to
competing at the highest levels of professional sport, through two decades of
management consulting with multinational corporations. These experiences have shown
that everyone has the ability to act decisively to influence the world in a positive way. Everyone is a giant to someone.
