Absolute Impact: The Drive for Personal Leadership

Matthew May, Author Peloton Publishing $17.95 (288p) ISBN 978-0-9729794-0-5
According to executive consultant May, too many people today are withholding""personal excellence"" from their work.""Leadership must move beyond simple effectiveness and directing the performance of others to become more about making the most of our unique abilities to positively impact the lives of those to whom we are connected in work and life,"" he writes. After studying""high impact individuals"" for two decades, May has penned a book on charting one's own course through life in a quest to""discover, deepen, and direct that which truly drives us."" The book uses an allegory about a prince and his court who meet to discuss the challenges facing the prince's heir. The four main characters represent various personality types--""a man of vision and reason,""""a man of service and duty,""""a man of spirit and truth,"" and""a man of action and artistry""--and readers may indeed recognize themselves in the portrayals. For those who take a shine to theatrical stories, May has much to offer, but readers looking for a quick solution won't find one here.
