He spent three decades proudly serving his country. But his greatest lessons came from one unique bond.
For Dr. Burl Randolph, Jr., leadership began at home as a young boy. Though his father was a man of few words, he was molded by his parent’s actions for a future filled with achievement. And when the decorated military officer faced his own retirement, he recalled the profound message his dad imparted many years before:
“A man ought to always stay busy.”
Far more than a tribute to an instrumental figure in his life, Dr. Randolph, Jr. offers a powerful narrative illustrating the mentoring influence a strong parent can have on a child’s development. Becoming a well-credentialed leadership expert in his own right, Randolph, Jr. defended his country for thirty-two years in the US Army, retiring as a colonel after three combat tours in Iraq.
In this unique memoir and account of life-lessons-learned, you’ll discover:
- Ways simple yet meaningful relationships can impart long-lasting wisdom
- The value of being inspired to lead others
- The potential impact of an influential mentor on generating respect, patience, and loyalty
- Why knowing yourself is your greatest asset
- How pursuing your passion will go far beyond a career to leave a legacy, and much, much more!
