Craig Miller’s book It’s Up to You: Learn Ten Powerful Leadership Practices takes a big step toward illuminating a very dark corner of our current world—leadership. The state of our world today is crying for authentic and effective leadership. We need this corner to be illuminated and made accessible so we can develop the leader within each of us.
Leadership is a field where we admire examples and get nuggets of wisdom from those who are accomplished. But discussing leadership is almost always anecdotal with tips and techniques. It may be an interesting story, but we are always left with this question: What do I do? Leadership is a performance art and cannot be understood with only concepts. It must be a field of actions, skills, and results. Craig’s approach provides exactly this needed perspective. He reveals key actions and skills and ways to make them work that are essential for the effective leader, manager, professional, or person who creates a future with others—and that includes all of us.
Craig Miller helps leaders and teams work more efficiently and effectively. He shows individuals how to connect goals and milestones back to their passions and values. When Miller sees a leader recommit to an organization or project with a renewed sense of purpose and enthusiasm, he knows his work is done. Miller is a native of the San Francisco Bay Area and has lived in Spain for the last 28 years. He lives in Madrid with his wife and youngest son. His two older sons live and study in Los Angeles.
