Sometimes the lessons we most need to learn are found half a world away, in lands far different from our own. This is the case with A Grander Goal, a training program offering a profound shift in our approach to leadership. A Grander Goal brings to bear that which is at once the simplest and most complex: love and forgiveness. It is a striking look at character illustrated by one mans unselfish desire to be a role model and provide direction for young unemployed men in Uganda. War-torn, strife- and poverty-ridden, Uganda is rife with directionless young men who havent the means to continue their educations nor any prospects for work. Americans Michael and Laura Timmis help these young men put together a soccer practice, which, in turn, brings them Stone. Once a star member of Ugandas professional soccer team, Stones professional career ended abruptly after a knee injury, which was intentionally inflicted by another player. But Stone holds no bitterness. He simply tells his opponent, You did what you had to. It is this selfless forgiveness that permeates all he does and sets the stage for the boys he mentors to learn important lessons about their lives and choices. A Grander Goal is a profound look at the power of character from Dr. Steven Covey, founder and chair of the Covey Leadership Center and author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.
