Michael Tetteh, Author of Giftocracy

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.
