Former GIA President publishes powerful leadership book

Boyajian takes readers through a journey of discovery

(PASO ROBLES, Calif.) - One of the most knowledgeable and sought-after leaders in the gem and jewelry industries takes that expertise to new heights with the publication of his first book, “Developing the Mind of a Leader - Your Path to Lead and Inspire People”.

Bill Boyajian, former long-time president of the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), writes with eloquence and wisdom in this 231-page book, packed with principles epitomizing leadership effectiveness.

Early reviews of “Developing the Mind of a Leader” have been effusive:

Dick Schultz, Executive Director, United States Olympic Committee (Ret), describes Boyajian’s book this way: “Bill has taken a different approach than most leadership books and it comes through in a very innovative, straight-forward, and effective way.  His vulnerability and values-oriented principles are a model for successful leadership.  Anyone interested in being the very best leader will benefit from reading this book.”

According to Patrick P. Caruana, Lieutenant General (Ret), U.S. Air Force, “‘Developing the Mind of a Leader’ is a work on leadership written by a leader.  Bill Boyajian skillfully draws you into the often-mysterious world of leadership, and then carefully reveals the timeless building blocks that unlock those mysteries in a thought-provoking way.  If you are serious about becoming a leader people follow, this is a book that will inspire you.”

In an insightful and revealing way, Boyajian takes his readers through a process of discovering what it means to lead, and how to inspire people to follow.

Bill Boyajian speaks regularly to groups both within and outside the gem and jewelry industries.  His book is available at www.mindofaleader.com.
