Working Title


A Field Guide To Becoming A Genuine Leader



I am in the developmental stage of my next book based specifically on “LEADERSHIP.”


In fact, I have decided to ‘work out loud’ in the writing of this fourth book of mine. This page will act as a place for me to interact and share some of my thoughts, be it in word, audio or video formats.


What is the state of leadership? Well, it’s a journey that I’m trying to sort out, but I think of it as getting back to basics. I believe it’s demonstrated by those who practice the humanity of leadership including but not limited to such concepts as humility, compassion, empathy, trust, recognition, kindness, purpose, regret, and so on.


We need a little more human in our leadership. I’m willing to try and figure out what that means.


I’d also love your assistance.


#1: Introduction to Cool People

If you have any stories of people or leaders who demonstrate what you think is fab leadership, I would be so thrilled to receive an introduction. Perhaps their story could make it into the book. You can send an email directly to me, Dan, at


#2: Participate in the Survey

If you are interested in participating in my LEADERSHIP survey, follow this link. It’s a chance for you to help shape what makes up a genuine leader. (coming soon)


#3: Share Research, Books, etc.

I am all about sharing. In fact, one of my favourite lines is “my network is my net worth.” If you have any data, research, examples, books, articles, videos, etc. that you’d like to share, please do so. I’m all ears. (send an email directly to me, Dan, at


#4: Join the Discussion

If you scroll to the bottom of this page there is a discussion forum that I am moderating. I encourage you to join and to post your thoughts about LEADERSHIP. (I’ll be sure to attribute you should they be used in the book!)


Many thanks in advance!


Publish date for DAN’S LEADERSHIP BOOK is October-ish, 2020.

Leadership Discussion


  • Dan Pontefract / 25 February 2019 9:12

    Hi there. I’m hoping to use this discussion space to engage with you about leadership.

    So, let’s get started.

    What do you think about the word leadership and your organization? Is it understood, misunderstood, used, abused, irrelevant, something else?

    If you were to define a LEADER, what qualities or traits would you use to describe them?

Want to leave a comment? I'd love to hear from you. Cheers, dp.
