As Peter Alduino makes clear in The Citizen Leader, leadership is not about position or title, power or authority, celebrity or wealth. And it’s most definitely not about being a hero. What Peter says is that leadership is your responsibility as a member of this global community, and that you have the capacity to do it. When you read The Citizen Leader, Peter asks you to confront yourself, take stock of who you are, and what you stand for. And he asks you to decide the difference you want to make in this world. This book is full of tips and techniques and practical examples, and all the things you need to become a better citizen leader, but it is not a book you just read, it’s a book you have to experience. It’s a book you have to actively participate in. When you do, it will affirm the most fundamental of all assumptions that you must make to become an exemplary leader — the assumption that you make a difference. The Citizen Leader will help you do just that.
