Overview

Leadership from the Inside Out guides you through a reflective journey to grow as a whole person in order to grow as a whole leader. We will not simply analyze the external act of leadership, breaking it down into a simplistic formula of "ten easy-to-follow" tips. However, you will gain some deep insights and practices to enhance your effectiveness as a leader for life. You need not rush. As a matter of fact, I encourage you to set aside the urge to plow through the pages. Instead, when a thought or feeling surfaces, pause. Close the book, put up your feet, and explore the insight. If you want to capture a breakthrough, jot it down in the space provided or in your own notebook. Instead of just reading the book, experience it, digest it, and integrate it into your life. You've probably read all sorts of personal and professional development books before; treat this one differently. Savor it as you would a walk with an old friend on a calm, sunny afternoon. There is no need to hurry, to anticipate, or to reach the end of your journey. On the contrary, your true reward is in pausing frequently and enjoying the experience itself. On days you feel like taking a short walk, just skim the quotes. You'll find one or two that speak to your needs that day. If you are ready to begin, let's walk together down the pathways to mastery of Leadership from the Inside Out ...from the Inside-Out

    Missing Parts

    The book is good if you like philosophic readings. It is too deep to figure out. And there is a problem with e-book. There are some pages/parts are missing. Since I paid for this book (not free!), I expect a complete book.
