The Tricycle Effect

How to be More Productive and Live a Successful and Significant Life by Leading with Character First

Authored by Dane Andrew Deutsch
Edited by Spencer Borup

Many leaders of today are riding a broken tricycle. They put too much focus on the technical skills and choose to neglect the True North of their moral compass, therefore leading with an imbalance. Yet so many of us-for we are all leaders of our own lives-could benefit exponentially from character-driven choices.

That is why I have built The Tricycle Effect!

In this book, through genuine and authentic real-life stories of character-driven leadership, I share with you how to lead your life with the Character Wheel of Trust and Respect and Honor and Integrity (among other things); how to create that perfect life balance between the Technical-Skills Wheel and the People-Skills Wheel through strength in both professional and personable competence; and how to ride that Tricycle through your life and those of others in such a way that impacts generations to come.

So join me. Take a seat, grasp the handlebars, and let's get Trikin'!
