If we’re honest, most of us doggedly resist the hard truth that only by living through the process of being broken by life, and experiencing all that comes with that brokenness, can we achieve meaningful personal growth. It is on the other side of deep, soul-searing pain where we most often stumble upon the rare qualities of wisdom, humility, insight and compassion, waiting patiently for us. Starfish Leaders tells the stories of five heretofore “successful” individuals who each must endure deep personal pain, and through that process find new meaning, purpose, and passion in their lives. These broken individuals regenerate into newly resilient Starfish Leaders who emerge from their pain to lead with a whole new sense of personal power and direction.
