Publisher's Summary

Written as an engaging parable, Swim!: How a Shark, a Suckerfish, and a Parasite Teach You Leadership, Mentoring, and Next Level Success brings to life real-world challenges (and their solutions) and presents them in simple, yet powerful terms. The book explores the vital importance of networking, explores the steps that lead to successful networking, and explains why we need it.   

Swim! dives deep into the concepts of mentorship and the power of human connection. While too many business leaders spend their time obsessing about facts, figures, and the bottom line, it is more important for them to learn to manage relationships. Once attention shifts to relationships, businesses, and careers can reach the next level of success. Written by a leading motivational speaker, this book offers ideas that can be applied to both personal and business life. This book will allow you to understand the importance of establishing habits and rituals; tap into the power of a positive mindset; discover the value of teamwork; and learn to use intentional language about workplace culture.  

Swim! is an entertaining book that highlights the significant concept of connecting and building relationships and includes the tools needed to become more self-aware about our roles and contributions in our industries.

A great lesson through a great story

I really enjoyed the story. I was totally caught up as the main character Scotty explains the value of mentorship and empathy. We may all strive to be sharks, but we all have paths when we’re sucker fish, and days when we’re parasites. Great book and I’d recommend to anyone that’s considering mentorship and mentoring others. 5 Stars all around.

Huge fan of Walter Bond's Sacred Six.
