Reviews for Rise Above:
"Just finished the book. Fantastic work. It has a conversational style that's very authentic, these are clearly things the author has been finding meaning in for a long time. Being able to synthesize a lifetime's worth of interdisciplinary learning into something as readable as Rise Above is a difficult task. Impressive work.”
"This is an excellent book which uniquely ties the author's personal experiences with the lessons he wishes the reader to learn. Once I started reading it, I couldn't put the book down. Great lessons for young leaders as well as leaders with lots of experience. 10/10"
"This is my favourite leadership book.
Rise Above provides one chapter on each area a leader should keep in mind as they lead their organization or group of people. I enjoyed the diversity in topic ranging from how to approach entitled employees to how to set the tone for your organization. The chapter that spoke most to me was "Chapter 7: Nobody knows your role", but I expect this to change as a progress on my personal leadership journey and continue to use this book as a tool for high level guidance and direction.
Another factor that helped me enjoy this book was the author spent little time in self-promotion, which is my pet peeve when reading a book written by other experienced leaders like Cam."
