Sharing the Rock
Shaping Our Future through Leadership for the Common Good
By Bill Grace
Leadership is recast and refocused in this profound book as the key to achieving a future in which the world is a safe place; where the environment, businesses, and communities flourish together; and where strangers are greeted as friends. Readers are introduced to seven practices that redefine leadership for a global society in which all voices are heard.
Sharing the Rock carefully sorts though the challenges blocking peaceful coexistence among people and cultures, and the obstructions wedged between humanity’s current situation and a sustainable future. Bill Grace makes the intangible ideas of morality, sustainability, and community concrete, and clearly illustrates how each of us has the ability to be part of the solution. Written with candor and humor, this book presents a new model of leadership, demonstrating the viability of a shared community in which all can thrive.

Should he succeed, this will prove to be the most important book thus far
in this century."
