Peter Alduino’s The Citizen Leader: Be the Person You’d Want to Follow is not a typical treatise on the characteristics of great leaders. It is very much a workbook, and Alduino expects his readers to work. His emphasis is squarely on self-awareness, and he guides readers on a journey of intense self-examination to determine the principles they want to live by, to scrutinize whether their pattern of action supports those principles, and to use that knowledge to become an active citizen and leader. This is not a guide to becoming a leader simply to be successful; it is a guide to becoming a leader with integrity, passion, and authenticity.
