Many people aim to be an inspiring leader, but lack the valuable skills needed to be one. Gordon Tredgold is on hand, with over two decades of experience and his new book to try and show us how to use leadership to achieve sustainable long-term success.
Gordon’s new book “Leadership: It’s a Marathon, Not a Sprint”, explains success that is quickly achieved is easily lost and through the pages of his book, he reveals and explains the steps to achieve success.  
“I truly believe that Simplicity, Transparency and Focus are the keys to success, we often overlook the simple approach, are focused on the wrong, or are not transparent enough about why we do things. In this book I show examples where I have used these approaches to turn around failing projects, under-performing departments, and how at 52, fat, and unfit I got myself to run my first marathon.” Gordon adds.

About – Leadership: It’s a Marathon Not a Sprint
Leadership: It’s a Marathon not Sprint, is a pragmatic Leadership guide, explaining leadership principles in an  easy to use, easy to understand and more importantly easy implement style.
The book is split into 26 chapters, one for each mile of the marathon. In each chapter i explain a leadership principle in detail, provide examples of that principle being used in a business context, then each chapter concludes with how that principle was applied to my running goal of running my first Marathon at the age of 52.
This book will be of interest to existing leaders and people looking to move into leadership.
Clear, straightforward advice bases on the principles of Simplicity, Transparency and Focus.
Gordon says, “My reasoning for writing the book, and I think a good hook into the book is that I wanted to raise money for charity, so decided to run a marathon. As well as writing the book I managed to complete it in 6 months with no prior training or experience, even more I got 5 others to do the same (we ran a second marathon in Cologne in October). I will continue to run and one of the plans is to run in Athens next year over the original course from Marathon to Athens.”

Gordon will be donating 30% of profits to cancer charity, one that one of his fellow runners has set up for Ovarian Cancer.
