Author R. Mark Macy grew up in the Midwest as the son of schoolteachers. He spent 33 years with two Fortune 50 companies in the area of Information Technology. Since his first election as a class officer in junior high, Mark has had a passion for Leadership and seeing others become successful.
You will find Mark is very much like you. He has a family and two awesome beagles (Winston and Bailey). He is very involved in his community, active in his church, coaches kids’ sports, and works long hours on his job. And, yes, many times that means traveling for extended periods to ensure his projects finish on time and under budget. He attributes his M.B.A. and specialized training as a Covey facilitator as two key components in his personal development of becoming a leader.
Now he taps those experiences to pen his first Leadership book, which ties five Leadership keys to the acronym: “B-I-N-G-O.” The book is entitled “Leadership is not earned in the Free Space.” He dives into the five areas of Trust – Accountability – Communication – Goals - Recognition sharing personal insights and stories to challenge the reader to explore new levels of Leadership.
Mark has a unique ability to communicate truths through stories. His pallet contains those experiences that will have you laughing, sometimes crying and yet others wondering. Common ground with the reader allows him to connect and challenge you to explore new levels of Leadership!
As you read the pages, grab a pen and jot down some notes on action steps you might want to try in your quest to improve your Belief, Integrity, Networking, Goals, and Ovation. When it is all said and done, you will discover what can be accomplished in the “FREE SPACE.”
You can then join with others in yelling “B-I-N-G-O”!
Believe me…The Best is Yet to Come!
