What Pop Culture Icons Can Teach Us About Impactful Leadership
Sebastien Richard

Lead Like a Superhero—Sebastien RichardSebastien Richard has released his second new nonfiction book, Lead Like a Superhero—What Pop Culture Icons Can Teach Us About Impactful Leadership. It’s published by Morgan James Publishing N.Y.

Sebastien Richard was born in Montreal, Quebec, Canada in 1974. He is a John Maxwell Team Certified Speaker, Coach, Trainer and he is the founder of Thriving on Purpose (T.O.P.) a leadership training and coaching company. He currently resides with his wife, Elisabeth, and his three children in Prince Edward Island.

He has also wrote Thriving on Purpose—8 Stepping Stones to a Successful and Fulfilled Life. The product of a troubled, poor, and unstable childhood in Montreal, Sebastien grew up aimless and depressed in his teens and early twenties. Nevertheless, he found an anchor in the Christian faith and became a lay preacher at his local Church in his mid-twenties. He eventually joined the John Maxwell team to further his training and influence. Today, Sebastien is the Founder of Thriving on Purpose. He is a successful speaker and author.

The goal of the new book, says Richard, is to help you develop your leadership skills, to become a better and stronger leader by following the example of Superman, Captain America, Wonder Woman or Optimus Prime. The book asks “What would Batman do?” or “What would Optimus Prime do?”

Superheroes play a huge part in popular culture, and beyond. Lead Like a Superhero goes into the psyche of well-known Comic Book Icons, analyzing their leadership strengths and weaknesses, and what makes them tick. Sebastien Richard’s deepest desire for Lead Like a Superhero is that “it will inspire a younger generation of leaders to embrace the values modelled by the likes of Superman, Spider-Man, or Wonder Woman to better lead their own lives.” Ditch the suit, embrace the cape, and lead like a Superhero.
