    it's all of piece

    What is the following in red saying in the context?

    Recently, he's been honored to serve in the Class of 1951 Chair for the Study of Leadership at West Point, where he teaches seminars on life and leadership. For leaders living the lives they want, it's all of piece.

    Thank you.

    That means nothing to me. Where did you find this?

    Re: it's all of piece

    It should be 'of a piece'.

    of a piece

    of the same class or kind
    (Collins)

    I'm not sure how this idiom fits here, though.

    As MNY asked, please state the source of other people's writing.

    It's from <<Leading the Life You Want>> by Stewart D. Friedman.

    Re: it's all of piece

    The book is talking about the skills for integrating work and life.
    Could I dare to guess it's saying that for leaders to lead a successful life, they must see life and leadership (work) as one and the same?
