Many of today’s youth desire to experience victory in life. They want to make a contribution to the world that makes an impact and leaves a lasting impression. The problem is they can allow the divisive voices of others, the distractions of today’s social media, the diversion of life’s busyness and the discontentment of the world’s bitterness, to keep them from living their best life.
It is possible for young people to live life in a way that makes them feel alive and adds value to the lives of others. This book is all about what it takes to lead to impact. It requires commitment, consistency and intentionality.
If you are a tired of seeing young people forfeit their future, living below average, losing when they should be winning, following instead of leading or falling into the same tired ruts over and over again, then Lead UP! is the right tool.
Lead UP! contains:
This book does not promise a magical formula or an easy path to success but it gives timeless ingredients for achieving success.
Lead UP! is a great tool and resource for mentoring programs, high school leadership initiatives, youth ministry, parents, teachers, grandparents, youth leaders or coaches who want to see young people live at maximum capacity.
Young People. Get Ready. Get Set. Lead UP! And Live Your Best Life.
What others are saying about Lead UP!’:
As the District Attorney of Douglas County, I run the office that prosecutes all of the felony offenses in my community. I see firsthand the many distractions, dangers and pitfalls that our youth face every day. Bernard’s book explores those issues and equips youth with the tools they need to come up with a better plan for their future. It teaches them to think critically and address the obstacles that life will place before them. My office uses the book in our Teen Intervention Program. It is a program aimed at diverting youth away from the criminal justice system. It involves youthful criminal offenders that we are trying to help transition into positive members of our community. Bernard’s book has proven to be a useful tool for many of the youth. It is without hesitation that I offer my support to Bernard Haynes, his company Lead to Impact and his book “Lead Up”.

The Lead UP! book has provided us a great tool that we use in our TIP program (Teenage Intervention Program) at the Douglas County, GA DA’s office. This partnership with Mr. Haynes has allowed us to have a bigger impact on the youth in our community. His book Lead UP! provides a solid resource that is dedicated to equipping and empowering young people to live and lead better. The book incorporates inspiring messages with introspective questions and practical instructions that help young people to see and develop the extraordinary within themselves. I recommend this book for anyone who wants to see young people lead with impact and achieve more.

I have added Lead UP to my curriculum for my mentoring program. It is an easy read for any age young man or woman. The book also helps the mentee in becoming a better person. Each lesson is a foundation of which young men and women need to navigate through life. The advice and the exercises at the end of each chapter helps each student to self evaluate themselves and their plan for their lives. The book cements the advice we have been giving our young people over the last three years. Lead UP makes mentoring easier when the young men can read the words and actually apply it to their lives now.
