“This book will make you look at superheroes, and leadership, in a whole new way. With Lead Like a Superhero, Sebastien Richard inspires us to go further, pushing us to meet the heroic version of ourselves.”
- Mel Robbins, best-selling author and motivational speaker
“Sebastien Richard cleverly uses the collective likability factor of superheroes and brings the leadership values they model to the forefront for us to ponder and learn from them. If you don’t want to lead like a superhero after reading this book, it’s probably because you’re a supervillain.”
- Chris Widener, Author of Leadership Rules
From the Author
I am unashamedly a comic book geek and I have been since my teens. Reading comics growing up has contributed to the shaping of my values and character. To borrow from Jack Nicholson: "They made me want to be a better man."
I created Lead Like a Superhero because, as a certified coach and leadership trainer with the John Maxwell Team, I realized and fully understood that:
♦ Everything rises and falls on Leadership. Therefore,sound Leadership is SUPER important everywhere, in every sphere, and for everyone
♦ People (like me) who love comic books and superhero movies are, deep down, seeking to feel empowered and inspired (aren't we all?)
I wanted to answer this need for Empowerment,Inspiration, and Leadership by mashing-up the best leaders in comics with time-tested leadership principles and values. The result is a page turner that will change your life... for the better!
Lead Like a Superhero will empower you to believe you can. You CAN reach your dreams, you CAN be successful, you CAN improve and become a better leader, you CAN have an amazing impact on the lives of others, you CAN... Lead Like a Superhero.

In my whole career I have spent 25 years in management for a large corporation, and I was amazed at the vocabulary used by Sebastien Richard to describe those Superheroes. He used terms like: strengths, weaknesses, achiever, discipline, commitment, decisive (decision making), leadership, empathy, adaptability, people skills, etc. These are all terms used during an appraisal (review) session with high level or low level directors and managers. The way he describes the DNA of leaders and how their beliefs determine their methods is awesome. After all, we are what we believe.
I didn't expect to read and learn about the four basic temperaments of leaders with their strengths and weaknesses described in great detail. And the author describes these characteristics for each Superhero in his book. Very high scores for Wonder Woman and her decision making skills. It's very hard for a woman to achieve the Board of Directors level and Wonder Woman would have been one of those; and any woman with the same persistence and self-confidence for that matter. There's also a lot of wise and powerful quotes across the whole book, such as Theodore Roosevelt and others. Examples of DETERMINATION by Sylvester Stallone " Rocky" and much, much more! I just loved it!
So the next time I enjoy a superhero movie I will not only look for entertainment but also for their leadership skills and strategies.

I've been a CEO in Corporate America for most of my career and loved this book. Imagine using the metaphors of superheros that we all know and love from our youth and defining them as leader profiles...to teach leadership in a fun and authentic way. Sebastien Richard's book is astonishing. Each Superhero is defined with strengths and weaknesses and a score...helping the reader associate their own leadership profile. This is a heroic book for all audiences written by a great thought leader!
