Published March 2018 

Available in the Richland Library collection in the following formats: print and eAudioBook.  

Leadership is hard. Convincing others―and often yourself―that you possess the answers and are  capable of world-affecting change requires confidence, insight, and sheer bravado. Stacey  Abrams’s Minority Leader is the handbook for outsiders, written with the awareness of the  experiences and challenges that hinder anyone who exists beyond the structure of traditional  white male power―women, people of color, members of the LGBTQ community, and millennials  ready to make a difference. 

In Minority Leader, Stacey Abrams argues that knowing your own passion is the key to success,  regardless of the scale or target. From launching a company, to starting a day care center for  homeless teen moms, to running a successful political campaign, finding what you want to fight  for is as critical as knowing how to turn thought into action. Stacey uses her experience and  hard-won insights to break down how ambition, fear, money, and failure function in leadership,  while offering personal stories that illuminate practical strategies. 

Stacey includes exercises to help you hone your skills and realize your aspirations. She discusses  candidly what she has learned over the course of her impressive career: that differences in race,  gender, and class are surmountable. With direction and dedication, being in the minority  actually provides unique and vital strength, which we can employ to rise to the top and make  real change. ~From the publisher
