"Keep learning throughout your leadership journey ..."


Why they're a Crisis Leader:

Joe Monroe has earned the title of a crisis leader every step of his journey so far.

And unlike some people that reach the apex of their careers by crawling over others, Joe’s legacy includes a wide and deep wake of other devoted, competent, and successful leaders that he has cultivated along the way.

One of the other factors for Joe’s success as a crisis leader is the extraordinary network of other crisis leaders and other resources that he actively maintains. It’s a rare moment when he doesn’t have a relationship with someone to help in virtually any situation and even more rare that those contacts wouldn’t drop everything to help Joe.

Joe’s willingness to share what he knows to anyone who asks epitomizes his role as a crisis leader who is committed to leaving a lasting legacy.

His focus on leaving a useful legacy made such an impact on me that it inspired the name for this book project.

Thanks, Joe.
