ABOUT THE BOOK

The Power of Earning Influence

To influence and lead others, you must first know your leadership style and begin to develop and mold yourself after it. To do this, you will need to gain greater visibility about how you lead and develop your specific set of leadership skills and tools that will help you inspire action in others. You can evolve and grow into a leader with more energy, creativity, productivity, and satisfaction in your life. This book is here to help walk you through that journey. You can create the life you want if you stop thinking about leadership and take action to becoming one instead.

The true measure of any great book is whether or not you walk away better off after the read

The true measure of any great book is whether or not you walk away better off after the read. David Villa delivers that in his latest book “Lead or Be Lunch”. After working with David on several projects over the last few years, I have experienced that feeling time and time again as I have had a front row seat not only when David speaks or writes but when he has been in action as a CEO, leader, and most impressively in the trenches with his team. Thank you David for allowing all of us to walk away better after reading “Lead or Be Lunch”.
