About the Author
Leadership educator, coach, scholar and author, Dr. West is motivated to help leaders — executive and emerging — experience the kind of velocity that comes with living life on a mission. He is most known for his scholarship that explores leadership as a reflex. He gets energy from multiplying effort through teamwork: he and his professional collaborators have founded non-profits (Leadership Training International, The Emergence Group), written leadership development books, journals, manuals and articles. Notable writing projects include: A Well Furnished Heart, Foundations for Emerging Leaders Series and editorial team contributions to the creation of the Journal of Religious Leadership. The irony of his existence: he grew up on the Chesapeake Bay, but had to move to landlocked central Kentucky to learn how to sail. If you can’t find him, he’s probably somewhere mentoring emerging leaders, revising a book draft or plotting the next big sailing adventure with family and friends.
