All actions taken should be made with that goal in mind. So point your compass in that direction and move out. How can anyone lead others without first knowing how to lead themselves?
In Navigate the Climb, General Britt shares the culmination of her experiences—and the crucial lessons she’s learned therein—from thirty-five years spent in both military and civilian leadership environments.

Maria firmly believes that only by striving toward your True North can you reach the highest peaks of personal and professional success. Through the highs and lows of school, career, marriage, and motherhood, Maria has kept her life’s compass pointed steadfastly on her calling of serving and leading to achieve a greater good.
