The Leader's Almanac:
An “almanac,” according to Merriam— Webster is a “publication containing astronomical and meteorological data for a given year, and often including a miscellany of other information.” The New Leader's Almanac took it's title with considerable thought, trying to determine whether the word fit or not, if the work was more of a journal, or chronicle. Astronomical data? It's working to chart the leadership stars. Meteorological? It's certainly trying to present a clear view of the environment, to help determine when, where, and how it's best to start cultivating leadership.
The Leader's Almanac is the first publication the Rocky Peak Leadership Center is writing, to help provide leader's with toolsets for dealing with problems that might arise. The Almanac is a guidebook to becoming a better leader. This book will contain a robust explanation of the leadership cards©. Each set has 14 different stimulus cards intended leaders, who are new, experienced, and everyone between. While the book is still in progress, the idea card sets are available here, free of charge; to help promote positive leadership growth.
