Praise for Lead to Lift Up Others

It’s the rare voice one finds in leadership circles and especially in leadership writing—one inspired by real experience, heartfelt love and an enduring strength—that while sorrowful, finds a reason to rejoice.

This book is for those who are ready to embrace leadership at a personal and professional level. Not just read about leadership—but to truly embrace the journey into leadership.

In learning to look at life differently, Ross developed twelve leadership principles and a road map for personal development. Those principles, paired with actionable items, guide you through your own leadership journey. Since reading Ross’ book, I…
