Inspired, Not Retired - Leadership Lessons from Father to Son by Dr. Burl Randolph, Jr.

by Dr. Burl Randolph Jr.

Leaders are developed over time and with great care. No matter what leadership position a person occupies, without the necessary tools to influence, support, coordinate, collaborate, and communicate, leadership can become a burden. Having the requisite amount of time and care invested in someone can make the difference between good and bad leadership, success, and failure.


Great leadership inspires us throughout our lives, and retirement marks the successful completion of only the first half.  Inspired, Not Retired examines the bond between a father and a son, a profound mentorship that provided leadership lessons used throughout the son’s successful 32-year military career. Drawing on those lessons, this book provides tools and insights for the emerging leader embarking on a leadership journey to the retired person who wants to remain a vital asset within society. Mentorship can ease the transition into civilian life and inspire continued service. Relationships fuel lives, but leadership drives the car.


In this book, Dr. Randolph illustrates how positive parental influence through mentoring can cultivate a declared introvert into a highly effective and successful leader. Leadership should inspire us to begin another chapter while continuously serving others. Mentorship can provide understanding along the way.

Inspired, Not Retired - The Trailer

 "What a beautiful tribute this author has given his father! This leadership book has an unusual basis. Most leadership books I've seen come from a strictly business angle, but this book has its roots in the lessons that the author learned from his father when he was a boy and a teenager."  Five Star Review from Jamie BJ-Amazon Top 500 Reviewer.  Check out the trailer for Inspired, Not Retired: Leadership Lessons from Father to Son.

The Burl I Know

  

I grew up in a single parent home raised by my mother. I sometimes envied Burl for having that extra parental resource. I do believe that by being friends with Burl throughout high school I picked up some secondary effects of his father that flowed from Burl, Sr., to Burl, Jr., on to me.”
