Overview

Senseless school shootings, cure-defying epidemics, threats of environmental disaster: these are the kinds of headlines that riddle the news every day. The challenges we face range from the horrific to the heartbreaking. We wonder, when will it stop?

Frustration and fear won't bring about beneficial change. Passionate men and women are needed to step into the gap and serve as change agents even though many assume that there are few areas left in which to innovate. While many advances have been made, there is still a need for everyday people to create, innovate, and impact their spheres of influence to advance the common good. Motivated by curiosity, conviction, and a conquering spirit, they can move to fill unoccupied spaces to nurture, persuade, understand, and solve some of society's lingering dilemmas. Those who do the initial significant work in these areas are the ones who bring about such needed change. They are pioneers.

The Pioneer's Way establishes a working definition of the pioneer, explores pioneering versus leadership, and offers essential characteristics of the pioneer. These are illustrated by colorful examples of pioneers both past and present—motivating readers with inspirational, frontiering stories, while equipping them with the journey's essentials for moving forward to make needed, significant change. Readers will journey down a systematic path that will help them navigate unfamiliar territory so they too can respond to the pioneer's call and answer it through effective, beneficial action in both their lives and the lives they touch.

About the Author

Since childhood, Dr. Jennifer Hayden Epperson has been motivated by stories of those who have gone “where no one has gone before.” This fascination became more personal when she learned that many pioneering people—pilgrims, inventors, and church and state founders—were nestled among the branches of her own family tree. Motivated by her own bumpy pioneering experiences as the first female manager in two media organizations, she has become more ardent about sharing valuable leadership insights and inspiration with others, including in the university classroom and through professional training overseas in Africa, the Caribbean, and Europe.
