Brad Lomenick “Every leader I know, including myself, has leadership gaps, and all of us need a resource and framework for not only identifying the gaps, but also a practical roadmap to help close those gaps.Hacking Leadership is an essential tool for every leader to have in their toolbox for working on their own leadership, and thus improving the team and overall organization. Mike reminds us all to not settle for the status quo, and the important role each of us have to be the change we seek. True leaders do something about it, and are willing to mix things up and hack away at their leadership, with the constant pursuit of excellence, and thus their true leadership potential.”

Brad Lomenick

President and key visionary, Catalyst, Author, The Catalyst Leader

Hacking Leadership is a thought-provoking, status quo shattering jolt of leadership wisdom that can propel anyone in the direction of their full leadership potential. At a time when scores of people are content settling for What Is, Mike challenges us to ask ourselves,What If? Instead of simply writing another book on leadership, he’s penned a powerfully persuasive narrative that reminds us the only limits to our leadership are those we impose on ourselves. Hacking Leadership is a must read for everyone!”
