Invisible Giants is about leadership, choices in life and the potential in everyone to make a difference. Lindsay Levin, who founded the social enterprise Leaders' Quest, tells the stories of the remarkable people she has met, and their impact on the world.


They are individuals who have overcome a lack of education and resources to re-energise their communities, and business leaders who strive to integrate purpose alongside profit. They are female activists in slums campaigning to end the exclusion of girls from school, and environmentalists tackling the effects of industrialisation on the world's ecosystem. They are the people we meet every day, who are revisiting their life choices.


It's also the story of Lindsay's own quest to ask: "what really matters?" and to figure out where the answers can take her.

Introduction. 1. Building Bridges. 2. Inspiration in Unlikely Places. 3. Hidden Treasure. 4. Return of the Soul. 5. How Much is Enough? 6. Salaam, Shalom. 7. William's Web. 8. What Role for Business. 9. Showing Up. 10. Rahul's Painting. 11. Shifting Ground. 12. The Whole River.

'Invisible Giants is a generous offering, deeply personal and beautifully written in clear, engaging prose. It demonstrates, rather than simply explains, why Leader's Quest has transformed the personal and work lives of the individuals who have joined these journeys.'  - Tom Glocer, former CEO, Thompson Reuters   


 


'Every corporate leader who yearns to redefine the role of business-beyond-profit should read Invisible Giants. Lindsay's quest takes us to Indian slums and South African prisons, but most importantly on a transformative inner journey - one which starts with curiosity, grows into compassion and leads to courageous actions, changing the world one leader at a time.'  - Virginie Helias, Global Director, Sustainability, Procter & Gamble   


 


'Many have written about leadership. Invisible Giants explores its moral meaning. How can we connect with what really matters and find an inner voice that changes the way we see our work? Lindsay Levin's organisation leads transformative personal experiences and she writes beautifully about success - and failure. She seeks inspiration from grassroots leaders, and takes people to worlds they never normally encounter. Seeing this awaken leadership potential is incredibly exciting.'  - Koy Thomson, Chief Executive, Children in Crisis   


 


'Invisible Giants is an extraordinary, warts-and-all account of an evolving cultural revolution designed to jump leaders into 21st century realities.'  - John Elkington, Executive Chairman, Volans Ventures; Co-founder of Environmental Data Services (ENDS) and SustainAbility   


 


'An inspiring journey with wonderful stories of exceptional people beating the odds to accomplish extraordinary things. It challenges us to think differently about the purpose of business and the role that leaders should play in society.'  - Bob Bechek, Worldwide Managing Director, Bain & Company   


 


'Truly inspiring. It's not about privileged do-gooders who clamour for media attention, but "karmayogis": people who bring about change in quiet and purposeful ways.'  - Anu Aga, Chairperson, Teach For India; Director, Thermax Limited   


 


'Lindsay's quest takes us to Indian slums and South African prisons, but most importantly on a transformative inner journey - one which starts with curiosity and leads to courageous actions, changing the world one leader at a time.'  - Virginie Helias, Global Director, Sustainability, Procter & Gamble
