More importantly, perhaps for this book, are key concepts such as creativity, critical thinking, problem-solving, and many more shared here are crystallized and stimulated when we are out on the trail. We discovered that for each of us, lessons and principles of leadership were revealed on the path, so they joined forces to write this book to teach and inspire others. The role that G.R.I.T. plays in becoming influential leaders became crystal clear to us during our respective journeys. Although we come from different places, backgrounds, and professions (for Sidney professional sports and the law for Stratton) the way we see the important aspects of life are fundamentally the same.
Our shared experiences inform this book. We hope you will be uplifted and motivated by both the words and original illustrations that follow.
We know that there are so many great books on leadership. The book we have created is unique and meant to supplement your existing leadership development system. More importantly, it is meant to inspire you to apply G.R.I.T. in your everyday life to enhance and make life more meaningful and rewarding for yourself and others.
