The 2016 Drawn By Fire Calendar - Inspired by Step Up and Lead


As promised on the Step Up and Lead, Leadership Traits webcast from last month, here is the information on the new Drawn by Fire calendar.

I'm very pleased to announce that the 2016 Drawn by Fire calendar illustrated by Paul Combs and inspired by Step Up and Lead is available for pre-order. There are a limited number of calendars available so don't hesitate to orders yours today. 

The calendar features the12 top traits associated with leadership within our industry - as featured in chapter 2 of Step Up and Lead. They are:

1. Loyal (Jan)

2. Educated (Feb)

3. Adaptable (Mar)

4. Determined (April) See cover photo

5. Enthusiastic (May)

6. Reliable (June)

7. Selfless (July)

8. Touch (Aug)

9. Empathetic (Sept)

10. Assertive (Oct)

11. Courageous (Nov)

12.Honorable (Dec)

These traits can be remembered using the acronym LEADERS TEACH.

In addition to Paul's illustrations, the calendar also features a definition of the trait along with suggestions on how you can improve in each area. Paul and I designed these calendars to provide you with a year worth of inspiration.

It's Only $20, but they will sell out, so secure your copy today!
