Learn to design, build, and maintain an effective and fulfilling life with this unique guide from the innovative entrepreneur, speaker, and author.
 
To create an effective space, landscapers must design, build, and maintain that space. To create an effective life, we must do the same with ourselves. In this unique and insightful guide to crafting a better life, author Scott M. Fay uses a landscaping metaphor and an approachable, conversational style to reveal the seven steps that enabled him to find his own Sweet Spot of personal and professional success.
 
These same steps helped Fay acquire fourteen distressed businesses and turn them into profitable environments for leadership and commerce. They prepared him to forge a partnership with the No. 1 leadership guru in the world and create the world’s fastest-growing speaking, coaching, and training team. It primed him to start several other ventures, projects, and initiatives related to his core strengths. And finally, it enabled him to create a robust life with a variety of opportunities.
 
If this can work for Scott—a guy who wears jeans and boots and drives a pickup truck—then it can work for you too. In fact, it can work for any individual or organization serious about creating a growth environment. Discover Your Sweet Spot and discover the life you’ve always wanted.

The book is a very practical exploration of leadership. The author draws on his extensive experience in a variety of senior roles to put the theory of leadership in an envelope of reality.
Leadership is about people, about getting people to do what you want them to do, even when they might be inclined to do otherwise. It is about encouraging, convincing, exhorting, motivating and generally getting human beings to do something they would not have done without your intervention.
Leadership is a process. It is not a set of characteristics, it is not charisma, it is not a position, it is not a role. It is a process-a process involving people. It is about those who lead and those who are led. It is about those who challenge and those who accept. It is also about helping people to achieve their goals as well, both as individuals and groups.

A blueprint for how parents can stop worrying about their children’s future and start helping them prepare for it, from the cofounder and CEO of one of America’s most innovative public-school networks

BILL GATES’S HOLIDAY READING LIST • “A treasure trove of deeply practical wisdom that accords with everything I know about how children thrive.”—Angela Duckworth, New York Times bestselling author of Grit
 
An educator and mother, Diane Tavenner cofounded the first Summit school in 2003. Summit Public Schools has won national recognition because 99 percent of Summit students get into a four-year college, and Summit students finish college at twice the national average. But in a radical departure from the environments created by the college admissions arms race, Summit students aren’t focused on competing with their classmates for rankings or test scores. Instead, students spend their days solving real-world problems and developing the skills of self-direction, collaboration, and reflection, all of which prepare them to succeed in college, thrive in today’s workplace, and lead a secure and fulfilled life. 

Today, thousands of educators, tens of thousands of students, and hundreds of schools across thirty-eight states and the District of Columbia have embraced the Summit model. 

Through personal stories and the hard-earned lessons of Summit’s exceptional team of educators and diverse students, Diane Tavenner shares the underlying learning philosophies and unconventional wisdom that lead to all children being prepared for school and life.

Advance praise for Prepared

“In a world filled with lots of parenting advice, Prepared cuts through the noise, offering a no-nonsense guide for raising curious, confident kids. Diane shares the secret sauce behind Summit’s success and how we can make sure that all kids can have the same opportunity.”—Jon Deane, CEO of GreatSchools

“Prepared is compelling and actionable. It tells the story of why we all must do this work. We must prepare every child, not allow luck or circumstance to dictate their future—and ours.”—Dr. Priscilla Chan, CEO of the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, pediatrician, and mother

“Diane Tavenner is one of the leading thinkers in education today—her energy and insights are infectious. There is no one better to think big about what kids need, and who can roll up her sleeves to make it happen.”—Sal Khan, founder and CEO of Khan Academy
