Elevate! is my platform where I feature some great people, blogs and websites that have had a profound impact on me. I hope that you will find some transformational gems in them too.

Dan’s passion is to connect with leaders and to help leaders connect with each other, share leadership ideas, learn with a belief we can learn much from each other, and, making a difference. When he’s long gone, he wants people to say, “My life is better because of him.”
Great Leaders Serve
Mark Miller began writing about a decade ago when he was fortunate to team up with Ken Blanchard to write The Secret: What Great Leaders Know and Do. “Great Leaders Serve” is both an attitude – an underlying desire to serve – and specific practices the best servant leaders exhibit on a regular basis. In 2011 he released The Secret of Teams followed by Great Leaders Grow: Becoming a Leader for Life. His upcoming book, The Heart of Leadership is scheduled for release in the fall of 2013. Mark is dedicated to sharing great content on leadership. I feel privileged to have followed him.
