Praise For…

"Rarely has a book come along that is so easy to endorse. The Citizen Leader would be wonderful required reading for every high school and college student in America and why not their parents as well. This thoughtful reflection and action-oriented guide on authenticity, character, and responsibility will stand up to the test of time because it speaks to timeless and fundamental human needs that dwell deep inside each one of us." --Chip Conley, Founder, Joie de Vivre Hospitality and Author, PEAK and Emotional Equations

“As Peter Alduino makes clear in The Citizen Leader, leadership is not about position or title, power or authority, celebrity or wealth. And it’s most definitely not about being a hero. What Peter says is that leadership is your responsibility as a member of this global community, and that you have the capacity to do it. When you read The Citizen Leader, Peter asks you to confront yourself, take stock of who you are, and what you stand for. And he asks you to decide the difference you want to make in this world. This book is full of tips and techniques and practical examples, and all the things you need to become a better citizen leader, but it is not a book you just read, it’s a book you have to experience. It’s a book that you have to actively participate in. When you do, it will affirm the most fundamental of all assumptions that you must make to become an exemplary leader ­– the assumption that you make a difference. The Citizen Leader will help you do just that.” --Jim Kouzes, Co-Author of the bestselling books The Leadership Challenge and Credibility

“Peter Alduino’s The Citizen Leader: Be the Person You’d Want to Follow is not a typical treatise on the characteristics of great leaders. It is very much a workbook, and Alduino expects his readers to work. His emphasis is squarely on self-awareness, and he guides readers on a journey of intense self-examination to determine the principles they want to live by, to scrutinize whether their pattern of action supports those principles, and to use that knowledge to become an active citizen and leader. This is not a guide to becoming a leader simply to be successful; it is a guide to becoming a leader with integrity, passion, and authenticity.” --Barry Mills, President, Bowdoin College

"Peter Alduino has one of the deepest hearts and finest minds of anyone I've ever known, and The Citizen Leader is his opus. Do the work as Peter prescribes in these pages, and it will become your opus, too. This book is destined to become a leadership classic." --Steve Farber, Author, The Radical Leap Re-Energized, and Greater Than Yourself
