A few years ago, we launched a book for visionary thought leader Dr. Kathy Cramer — best-selling author, speaker, psychologist, business consultant, executive coach, and founder of The Cramer Institute in St. Louis, MO.

Today, we are grieved to share that she recently passed away after a short battle with cancer.

Kathy’s departure leaves a gaping hole in the world of leadership. She dedicated her life to the development of Asset-Based Thinking, a way of looking at the world that helps leaders, influencers, and their teams make small shifts in thinking to produce extraordinary impact. She was passionate about showing leaders how to move beyond the status quo and operate in the upper ranges of their potential.

Kathy’s key phrase, “Lead Positive,” has had a lasting impact on thought leadership, and her best-selling book by the same name was selected as one of Inc.’s top 10 books of 2014. Her other best-selling books include the Change The Way You See series, The Coach’s Guide To Asset-Based Thinking, and When Faster Harder Smarter Is Not Enough.

Will you help us honor her life and continue her legacy? Here are a few ideas:
