A leadership and professional development coach and educator has released her practical guidebook to fostering the next generation of leaders. In “FOCUS in ACTION Is Great Leadership,” author Belinda Johnson White, Ph.D., helps young people to hone their leadership skills, further their personal and career success and innovate in the 21st century.

Inspired by some of history’s greatest trailblazers, White presents readers with her Johnson White Leadership Model, which hybridizes leadership and professionalism competencies and skills. Through this, White extrapolates on the critical importance of focus, action and great leadership in fostering success and lasting impact.

“One of my most vivid memories of growing up in 1960s Alabama is of the civil rights movement and the prolific work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.,” White said. “Because the 21st century continues to need great leaders like King, I wrote this book to document the strategies employed by him and other torchbearers of history in hopes that it will guide the development of future generations.”

“… White is a very open and engaging writer, and she presents readers her concept of ‘motiva-cation’ – a blend of motivation and education – as a series of elaborations on the system she has devised, the Johnson White Leadership Model,” a Kirkus reviewer wrote about the book.

Through succinct and easy-to-follow guidance, “FOCUS in ACTION Is Great Leadership” delivers an effective blueprint for millennials and other future generations as they take the reins of the modern world.
