In 1984, Doug Conant was fired without warning and with barely an explanation. He felt hopeless and stuck, but surprisingly, this defeating turn of events turned out to be the best thing that ever happened to him. Embarking on a journey of self-reflection and discovery, he forged a path to revolutionize his leadership and transform his career trajectory. Ultimately, Conant was able to condense his remarkable leadership story into six practical steps.
Part leadership manifesto, part practical manual, The Blueprint teaches leaders how to work through the same six steps that Conant used to transform his journey. The steps are manageable and incremental, designed to fit practically within the pace of busy modern life.
