The Four Seasons of Leadership speaks to us where we are and moves us to where we ought to be. In a thought-provoking manner it challenges us to reflect upon our purpose and then to invest that new energy of purpose into actions which move us toward our life dreams. It asks the right questions and points in the right direction to enable us to live a life that really does make a difference in the lives of others.

David Neidert puts our feet on the right path and fixes our eyes on integrity. He decodes the mystery of responsible, effective, honorable leadership.

The Four Seasons of Leadership sparkles with great insights into the nature of authentic leadership. David Neidert's viewpoint is one of servant-leadership.

David Neidert has turned "mustard seed" principles into sheltering truths. How blessed we are that he shares these truths with all who will listen. (Laurie Beth Jones, author of Jesus, CEO; The Path; Jesus in Blue Jeans)
This is a refreshing, innovative, often poetic book on how to think seriously about polishing your leadership skills and living a meaningful life.

Four Seasons of Leadership is a wonderfully challenging and perceptive book. (Max De Pree, author of Leadership Is an Art; Leadership Jazz; Leading without Power)
