What to expect

Like so many corporate executives charged with tremendous responsibility, Cynthia struggles to find balance in her life and to lead others effectively. She has led herself to believe that although things aren’t perfect, she is doing “okay.” Her boss, Rick, believes otherwise and is extremely concerned about her dismal employee approval rating. Rick considers letting her go, but he instead decides to try something out of the ordinary and give her a chance. He truly wants her to succeed, but he makes it very clear that “her results had better drastically improve, or else.”

Enter an unlikely mentor named Otis, who teaches Cynthia that successful leaders are successful thinkers. At first Cynthia rejects Otis as a mentor because he is soon to be one of her subordinates. However, his unconventional leadership style and out-of-the-box philosophies seem to be working for him, and she needs help. As the story unfolds, Otis teaches Cynthia the Seven Laws of Twenty-First-Century Leadership and calls into question everything she believes to be true about life and leading others.

Follow Cynthia on her journey as she transforms into a successful thinker with an amazing new life, both at home and on the job.
