What do you do when you feel lost as a leader?

Always Growing tackles a common leadership challenge: How to successfully motivate, develop, and empower a diverse group of people to work together and achieve remarkable results.


David has risked so much. Accepting his first leadership role at Trendex has meant uprooting his family and leaving behind a comfortable and secure position. The only upside may be that he is moving back to the place he called home as a boy - a place where his sister, Kelly, still resides and operates a thriving garden center.

David quickly realizes that he is in trouble. He has taken responsibility for a division that is destined for the chopping block if he doesn’t soon figure out how to motivate his employees, prioritize their work, and unify them as a team. Sharing his concerns with Kelly leads to a very interesting revelation.

Can Kelly’s proven method for growing plants show him the way to grow his team?

David soon learns that:

  • Letting something grow on its own is not a wise choice

  • Determining what a plant needs is critical to optimum growth

  • Pruning is sometimes necessary to minimize undesirable outcomes

  • Harvesting is much more than reaching the intended goal

Always Growing is a warm and witty guide to becoming a stronger leader, whether you have been leading for two days or two decades. This clever gardening analogy will lead you and your team to a bountiful harvest.

Rave Reviews

Leadership is a people business. Successful leaders know that when your people grow, the organization will grow. Always Growing provides a step by-step process for growing others, your organization, and yourself. Every leader should have Always Growing in their library!
— DR. MARSHALL STEWART, Vice Chancellor of Extension and Engagement University of Missouri
In my industry, department leaders are frequently promoted into positions with very little training on the skills needed to effectively lead and manage people. Always Growing gives a great ‘behind-the-scenes’ look into what makes leaders successful and will help them avoid many common pitfalls.
— CHRISTY PRICE, Director of Tailored Learning Services and Certifications Choice Hotels International
All too often, management books are interesting but entirely too complicated to implement. Always Growing presents some profound leadership and cultural change principles through a simple and engaging story. These concepts can be used to change an organization’s culture from the top down in a subtle but effective way.
— ARTHUR SALYER, Senior Partner, Global Interim Executive Management LLC and Former CEO of Palladium Energy
