Leaders are developed over time and with great care. Family, friends, faith, and even finances (careers) require solid relationships but can only inspire us so far. Leaders can inspire us to make the difference between success and failure. Inspired, Not Retired examines the bond between a father and a son, a profound relationship that evolved into a mentoring experience that provided leadership lessons used throughout the son’s successful 32-year military career. Drawing on those lessons, this book provides tools and insights for everyone from the emerging leader seeking to embark on a leadership journey, to the retired person who wants to remain a vital asset to corporations, communities, and society. Mentorship throughout one's life and career can ease the transition into civilian life and inspire continued service. Although relationships fuel lives, leadership drives the car that inspires us to keep moving forward.
