Crane Stookey shows that true leadership arises from daring to open to the inherent goodness and intelligence to everyone around him. His book tells of his discovery and cultivation of that goodness and wisdom within himself. He shares with us how, with discipline, he is able to serve as a guide that embodies confidence in himself and others. The lessons he imparts to his reader are empowering. That day in Oakland, I felt empowered by my experience with Crane. I am grateful that he clearly has taken simple truths gleaned from metaphors of sailing and rock tumbling, when seen and experienced, will empower again and again and will make leaders of us all.
