ABOUT THE BOOK

LEAD A LIFE OF SIGNIFICANCE TO CREATE A LEGACY YOU’LL BE PROUD OF.

That’s not just Warwick Fairfax’s motto, or even just his life’s mission. It’s his life story. From the ashes of losing his family’s 150-year-old media dynasty at a cost of $2.25 billion, he has forged a philosophical and practical breakthrough that helps men and women from all walks of life bounce back from their own setbacks to become the leaders they were born to be.

In Crucible Leadership, Fairfax discusses for the first time his thoughts and actions in launching the John Fairfax Ltd. takeover in the ’80s. He explains what he learned about himself from that devastating failure — who he was and was not, what his unique design, purpose, passions and vision really were.

He also looks at how the company’s founder, his great-great-grandfather, John Fairfax, and his own father, Sir Warwick Fairfax, walked their own paths to significance by living with character, authenticity and faith. And he examines inspirational and instructive stories from the lives of history’s greatest leaders and visionaries, from Lincoln to Churchill, from Disney to Gandhi – illustrating how they made the world a better place by refusing to let setbacks and failures define or limit them.

Crucible Leadership will give you hope, and the practical action steps to make it a reality, that life’s toughest moments aren’t the end of your story, but a new chapter that leads to a rewarding new beginning in your leadership and life … as you discover your unique path to a life of significance.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Warwick Fairfax is the founder of Crucible Leadership, a philosophical and practical breakthrough for turning professional and personal setbacks into the fuel for igniting a life of significance. He was only 26 when, as the fifth-generation heir to the Australian media empire bearing his family name, he led — and lost — a multibillion-dollar public takeover bid. The result? The company founded by his great-great-grandfather slipped from family control after 150 years, leaving him to examine not only his own shortcomings and losses, but also his life’s passions and principles. By shaping these insights as a leadership adviser, Fairfax empowers others to learn from their own “crucible experiences” and emerge to lead lives driven by a vision dedicated to serving others.
