Book of the Month

Upside-Down Leadership


By Don Janssen (2018)

Influence—much more than power and authority—brings the truest significance to a career. But what does influence look like? How do you get it? As Don Janssen discovered, real influence comes through humble, service-based leadership.

Upside-Down Leadership is a groundbreaking book by San Diego Zoo Global’s retired corporate director of animal health. It provides a fresh—and highly practical—approach to leadership. With engaging stories from Janssen’s remarkable veterinary career, eye-opening interviews, and step-by-step advice, this book teaches future leaders from any field how to make a lasting, influential difference in the organization they serve. —Publisher.
