Enhance your purchase
Ultimate Power is a parable about Gregory Goose - a very special lead goose who goes on journey’s to discover how to harness his own power as a leader. Gregory was no ordinary goose. In his first journey, which begins “First Day New Job, Now What! Gregory learns about the power rules such as honking, pecking, and keeping other geese in line. He discovers that rather than seeking power-over others, Gregory learned about seeking power-with other. In this new form of leadership, which he called Co-creating, Gregory learns how to trust other geese to become leaders – and they do. He learns that ‘sharing power releases the leadership instincts in others.’ Gregory was not satisfied, and wanted to learn more about leadership. In this parable called Ultimate Power, Gregory learns a bigger lesson about leadership. He learns that it’s easy for geese to get complacent on the ground once they have learned the ‘ground rules’ – yet there is much more to being a lead goose than strutting and honking. While looking up in the sky Gregory discovers a Hole to Heaven, and he discovers new urges that came from inside. Flight was something he dreamed about in the privacy of his mind, and Gregory yearned to fly high above the clouds and see what was on the other side. He yearned to master flight! Ultimate Power is a fresh and innovative way to understand the importance of self- discovery, self-awareness and self-mastery. It’s a parable that teaches leaders the difference between mastering the leadership skills of leading others, and mastering the mindset of leading oneself. Gregory trip to the Hole in Heaven brought him new insights and new power rules. Such as Rule 1: Power Comes From Broadening Your Vision, and Rule 2: Power Comes From Learning to Navigate; Rule 3: Power Comes From Overcoming Your Fear of Letting Go; Rule 4: Power Comes From Uncovering Skills You Didn’t Know You Had; Rule 5: Power Comes From Inventing New Rules; Rule 6: Power Comes From Tapping Into Your Deepest Aspirations; Rule 7: Power Comes From Mastering the Endless Flight. Gregory’s Ultimate Power came from the wisdom he learned when taking to the sky. On these journeys he learned that when the familiar becomes too familiar it’s important to take to the sky where you can learn to ‘fly into’ new mindsets that enable you to master yourself. Gregory learned that when he was in flight he could rely on his own inner compass to navigate his flight, and he learned he could think big thoughts he never thought before when he was grounded. All leaders want to discover their Ultimate Power as they climb to their next level of leadership, but many try to use the ‘ground rules’ rather than the ‘rules of flight.’ Gregory learned that “Harnessing his own power meant that he had an endless source of power that he didn’t know he had — a power he could tap into to help him to navigate even his most difficult journeys. He had it all inside and didn’t know it until he took to the sky.” Aspiring leaders and C-suite executives will identify with Gregory’s story. Gregory is both a motivational story, and a story with lessons every leader can benefit from and apply to every day life. And now you can learn too. If you are looking for a powerful book for developing self-mastery for the long journey, you will find Gregory Goose a powerful message for leaders at all levels in the organization. Or, if you are looking for an inspirational message for your next leadership meeting, consider giving attendees a copy of Ultimate Power. Ultimate Power, and the first Gregory book – The Leadership Secret of Gregory Goose, are both available on Amazon. For more information on Benchmark Communications, Inc., contact Judith E.
