What do giraffes have to do with business? They stand tall, head and shoulders above everyone else, so they can see things others can't. They have excellent vision (they can see a man from a mile away!). They can reach things others can't. They have soft compassionate eyes - good leaders communicate a sense of really understanding those that they lead. In Africa the giraffe is a symbol of friendship. Though giraffes may have nine different patterns on their bodies they make no distinction among themselves - everyone is treated equally. Great leaders treat everyone with compassion and respect. What you'll find in this book is a collection of wonderful anecdotes, brilliantly illustrated that touch on many aspects of great leadership.
