What is the difference between a good leader, and a great leader? 

What results do great leaders consistently achieve, and what activities do they perform in order to accomplish these results? Are some leaders simply Made to Thrive, creating growing, profitable organisations with magnet like cultures for attracting talent, while the rest are destined to accept only good results?

Or, is it possible to learn the key roles that great leaders perform, in order to achieve enduring, great results?


In this book Brad Giles provides a detailed step-by-step process for leaders to identify their key opportunities, evolve beyond their leadership comfort zone and implement tools to achieve enduring greatness as a leader.

Made to Thrive is a simple, practical and definitive practitioners guide on how to be a great leader.

Growing a business to be more purposeful, meaningful and useful in the world is a big goal for many of us CEOs. But, how do you do it? Well, one of the answers is that you'll need to grow your own knowledge, skill and understanding of how to be an effective CEO first. Brad Giles' model to help us CEOs assess our skills and then take action to move from good to great is the practical and powerful guide I wish I had much earlier in my career.
