Growing Influence: A Story of How to Lead with Character, Expertise, and Impact

Ron Price & Stacy Ennis

Emily is a career-driven thirtysomething with big ambitions and a young family. She is making an impact as a manager at a tech company, but after being passed up for multiple promotions, she finds herself at a loss for how to improve. Fate answers her in the form of a kind–and surprisingly direct–older man in a coffee shop. A well-respected CEO before he retired, David has deep and rich leadership knowledge. Emily needs direction, and David is the perfect mentor.

Growing Influence offers readers both practical advice on how to develop leadership skills and a relatable account of one woman’s growth by applying the principles in the book. Unlike nonfiction business books or business memoirs, this story is a true business fable that is both impactful and transformative.
