This is a book for entrepreneurs, leaders, and anyone facing the number one challenge in business: Hiring and inspiring people to carry out your vision.
But be forewarned: This is not a feel-good business book. Above the Line is a true tale of a misfit CEO about the undeniable connection between people and profits.
An introspective portrayal of the emotional roller coaster that many leaders and entrepreneurs face – both personally and professionally – the book documents a CEO’s path of discovering himself through his business.
It’s about his quest to discover his core purpose and values while facing the pressures creating a sustainable business that puts people first. It’s a book about how to do the right thing when things go wrong.
With an easy-going, narrative style, author Steve Satterwhite takes readers through his entrepreneurial journey. He vulnerably shares the highs, lows, and demons of fear, self-doubt, and self-confidence along the way.
Above the Line is a quick and easy read that some say they “couldn’t put down”. Steve’s passion for people and his willingness to authentically share makes it more than a typical business book.
It’s a call to action to leaders everywhere to create a culture of inspired people who hold themselves to high standards, strive to do the right thing, make this world a better place…and vastly increase company profits as a happy side effect of this new way of working.
