The Motivation to Actively Care
How You Can Make it Happen
E. Scott Geller
The storyline of this 250-page realistic novel follows from the prior storybook: “The Courage to Actively Care.” However, readers do not need to read the first novel in this series to understand, appreciate, and apply the evidence-based leadership lessons presented in this novel. Twenty research-based and practical leadership lessons are interspersed throughout the narrative as each lesson becomes relevant for a particular episode in the true-to-life story. Then at the end of this page-turner, several discussion questions are provided for each chapter—designed to stimulate personal reflection and interpersonal conversation about the real-life ramifications of the leadership and motivational lessons revealed throughout the narrative.
