A fictional, newly promoted police Sergeant takes a journey of leadership discovery through a series of dreams. As he encounters challenges along the way, Sergeant Newstripe comes to understand the role of a leader and what it takes to lead people. In fourteen lessons he learns that leadership is a responsibility, not a title; and the most important person to lead, is himself. Sgt. Newstripe comes to understand the value of a trusted mentor; and that, to be successful, he will need to continually, intentionally grow and develop himself. This short book contains lessons for every leader, and those who desire to lead others, not just the first line supervisor. The ideas are presented in an entertaining and practical manner that every leader can relate to.
