"The Secret to Finishing Well: Quest for Authentic Leadership" weaves together author Agitu Wodajo's experiences of growing up in Ethiopia, her emigration to America and her extensive work with the government of Ethiopia, the United Nations, nonprofits and non-governmental organizations (NGOs). Carefully researched and intelligently executed, "The Secret to Finishing Well" combines spiritual tenets with pertinent global events and personal anecdotes to illustrate the vast differences and similarities in leadership styles across cultures and nations.

Based on evidence from the author's travels, reading and biblical knowledge, "The Secret to Finishing Well" asserts that the purpose of leadership is to re-endow human beings with the liberty and rights originally given to them by God. To this end, Wodajo gives her readers the tools needed to be agents of positive change in leadership at all levels. Stressing the importance of the past in shaping the present, "The Secret to Finishing Well" explores the differences in leadership of Ethiopia's three regimes-monocratic, communist and democratic-as well as the differences in leadership in Ethiopia and the United States.

Emphasizing the dual concepts of "finishing well" and authenticity, "The Secret to Finishing Well" is an exploration of the factors that compose strong, effective leadership and government. "The Secret to Finishing Well" is a motivational, informative guide to leadership style, government policy, and personal principle that seeks to be a catalyst of change through individual effort and public policy.
