“For decades before allyship and vulnerability were discussed seriously, Joe practiced the kind of generous leadership that made him a such a strong role model for both. As a woman of color, working for Joe turned my stereotypical expectations of white male leadership upside down. Joe’s book holds all of these lessons and more – his actionable examples and advice will make you a stronger leader, friend, ally, spouse, parent, and collaborator in every arena.”

“Joe unlocks deep insight into what it takes to become the kind of leader that leaves a legacy far beyond business results.  Most people will remember the great leaders not for what they did for the business, but what they did for them, how they made them feel. The Generous Leader is inside all of us.”

“A generous leader is an authentic leader, and Joe Davis demonstrates his authenticity through the words and actions included in his story. By leading the reader through a journey of learning, challenges, successes, and failures, Joe models how he brings his whole self to work – humbly, fully, unabashedly – and helps others unlock their potential. A great read for leaders willing to sit around the (blue) kitchen table and give of themselves to grow others.”
