We're excited to welcome author and former Seattle Sounders soccer player Michael Tetteh to Island Books. He'll be at the store sharing his unique approach to leadership, a holistic approach to creating harmony in the workplace.
Nearly thirty years ago, in a tiny, impoverished Ghanaian village, a young boy dreamed of becoming a professional soccer player and competing against European powerhouse Manchester United. He ate soccer, slept soccer, and breathed soccer. Despite being told that he wasn’t good enough to become a professional, his dream was realized in 2011 after being drafted by Seattle Sounders FC and competing against Manchester United in front of 67,000 fans. At twenty-three years old, Michael Tetteh had realized his childhood dream.
Michael's new book, Giftocracy, shares powerful lessons from real-life experiences, along with thoughts from trusted influential and transformational leaders (including Myles Munroe, John C. Maxwell and Zig Ziglar). His insight and encouragement inspires readers to live a purposeful and rewarding life.
