Testimonials

Danise and Louie have the ideal bond between human and dog—unconditional love. I have the same connection with my little dog, Joy, who not only brings me joy but also helps me be a better person and a better leader. Read this book and you’ll see why it’s no accident that God, spelled backwards, is dog.

“LEADership is an influence, and Louie sure knows how to influence (Danise does a nice job too!)! The LOUIE Leadership Model guides our LEADership workshops with high schoolers, emerging leaders, and those who have reFired (rather than retire). Understandable, actionable, and quite memorable. L is for Love, and LEADership is Love -we Love Louie, Danise and the lessons we’ve learned.

I was astounded by Louie’s story and Danise’s link to leadership principles. She was invited to lead a series of time slots for the Edoc Service staff. What a memorable story (still ongoing) and remarkable training.

Louie’s Leadership Lessons challenge me to review my character in everyday situations. As a ministry leader, I need compassion, yet boundaries, to help people accomplish ‘the next right thing’ in life.

Danise has this amazing ability to make things that are seemingly complex very simple. Her book, Louie’s Leadership Lessons, is a great example. Being a leader is not easy, and it never will be, and yet if you follow the simple principles she has laid out in the LOUIE Leadership model, being an effective leader becomes much easier. This book is a must-read for anyone who wants to be a more effective leader.
