What Is A changemaker?

Leadership is never easy. Almost all leaders deal with both triumph and tragedy,

oftentimes in equal measure. The fact of the matter is that leadership insists on

constant rejection of the status quo. True leaders demand continuous reflection

and improvement of those around them, and even more importantly, of

themselves. True leaders are Changemakers.

In Deke Copenhaver’s The Changemaker: The Art of Building Better Leaders, you

will learn to become unafraid of doing something different in the service of a good

cause and how to spark a movement that others can’t help but rally around. The

Changemaker is a roadmap of sorts, designed to deliver comprehensive, common

sense leadership strategies to people from all walks of life. Through personal and

professional anecdotes, case studies, and the wisdom from Changemakers gone

by, The Changemaker will inspire and empower you to embrace adversity, rely

on creativity and character, and sometimes take the road less traveled in order to

unlock your ultimate potential.
