Who is a Leader? is a beautiful resource that showcases authentic leaders using their own individual talents. What a great resource for parents and teachers alike to share with children they love.
~Amy Michaels, Parent & Entrepreneur (teachingwithamy.com)
With beautiful simplicity, "Who is a Leader?" defines profoundly important internal and external qualities for mindful living. The ideas author Kristi Kremers introduces will serve each and every person, whether a leader of many or simply of themselves.
~Natanya Lara, Parent & Parenting Coach (natanyalara.com)
This indeed is a book that can change the world, if every teacher and parent could internalize the meaning and learn the way to convey the messages in order to inspire children, the world eventually will be better place to live for all.
~Ulla Koivukoski, Senior Vice President, Comptel Corporation
This book shares the key ideas of mindful leadership in simple, easy to understand text, supported by fun & colorful illustrations.

From the Author
I wrote this book for my future children. Who Is A Leader? reflects the types of deep conversations around leadership and values that I think many of us yearn for in our fast-paced lives.
It's my personal belief that we're all here to contribute and serve through our unique callings. I hope for my children, and for the children in your life, that this book helps them tap into their gifts and what matters most. It's never too early to start talking about leadership, love, and what it means to have a life well-led.

The author is a college teacher who has spent many years researching emotional intelligence, ethics and mindfulness in leadership. In this short book she manages to produce a comprehensive guide and discussion on the subject for children in the elementary grades. The colorful multicultural graphics are simple and the text is appropriate for early readers.
Kremers begins with a definition of leadership. A leader looks at the outside universe but knows we must look inside first and follow our heart. The leader never leaves the heart at home and acknowledges responsibility for herself and others. A boss is not the same as a leader because a leader connects with her team before correcting them. The leader creates a culture where team members can feel safe, respected, happy, and successful. Leaders bring out the best in others and support members in success and failure. Any person can become a leader when making a good decision that allows others to join in their project.
Next the author names leaders children might be familiar with: parents, teachers, and preachers. She uses the leadership profiles of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Mother Theresa, and Dr. Neil De Grasse Tyson as biographical examples.
At the end of the book there are three separate discussion guides for families, kids, and classroom. The questions within these can be modified or adapted depending on the age of participants. This forty page book provides a mini management training seminar for children and boosts self esteem. Recommended especially for children ages six through ten.
I can see organizations buying copies for all management as a cultural reference and easy reminder of what makes great leaders.
This book encourages and preserves the natural leadership in youngsters and reminds us oldsters of what we've forgotten. It's deserves a place beside "Oh the Places You'll Go" to encourage leadership and winning attitudes in young and old.
I would love to see it in hard copy!
Using the digital version, I was able to screen capture each page, save them into an album, then play that album on the tv as a screen saver using Roku or Apple TV.
I will be ordering the print version for my son's elementary school.
