Reviews

"Archie Jones breaks down how to define, assess, and improve

your leadership capital aka "the currency of change". His

coaching superpower comes through the conversational read

peppered with examples and questions for your reflection.

The Treasure You Seek offers a framework for closing the

leadership gap on the road to unlocking your full potential."

Student of Archie Jones


"Good leaders provide direction, purpose, and reason for

a group or organization to follow. They also share their

knowledge, wisdom, and experience with others. Their leadership

becomes a calling to serve others. Archie is a leader

who has risen to his position through his actions and his

words. His thoughts on leadership and influence are clear,

specific, and on target in today's business and social climate."

David A. Thomas, PhD

President, Morehouse College


"Archie has the rare ability to make anyone look deeper at

themselves and see new possibilities for their lives. His leadership

capital framework can apply to people and leaders from

all walks of life, even those who may have never recognized

that they are a leader themselves. If you don't know what

your superpower is yet, this book will help you discover it."

Everette Taylor

CEO, Kickstarter


"There is no greater aha moment than figuring out your

superpower. The Treasure You Seek is an inspiring book that

clearly lays out a powerful roadmap to finding one's superpower.

This book is a must-read for anyone seeking to become

a more effective and more fulfilled leader."

Vanessa Kirsch

Founder-in-Residence and Senior Partner, New Profit Inc.


"As I read Archie's book, all bells started to go off in my head!

His early career leadership lessons are very impactful and

resonate very much with me. At 32 years old I was one of

the youngest CFOs of a NYSE listed company with a team

of about 1,000 people under my responsibility. My early

approach to leadership was purely transactional. I thought

my job was just about getting my team to perform certain

tasks that I directed them to do. I even made the mistake of

trying to perform 'management by email.' I was so wrong!

I wish I had Archie's book early in my career and had then

learned his concept of 'leadership capital.' I would have been

much more effective and impactful! And it would have saved

me many mistakes."

"In The Treasure You Seek, Archie Jones navigates readers

through his remarkable personal story and provides an

essential, heartfelt, and strategic guide to leadership in today's

business climate. Archie powerfully illustrates the importance

of harnessing community to both shape and achieve

the "treasure" at the heart of a successful business world

journey. The Treasure You Seek provides an emerging generation

of previously underinvested business leaders concrete

guidance on how to develop and own their trajectories and,

ultimately, their success."
