Overview

How to become a more effective leader by applying martial arts techniques to the demands of today's workplace. 

• Learn the techniques taught to executives at Boeing, Intel, Hewlett-Packard, GTE, and other major corporations.

• Improve your concentration, self-control, intuitive judgment, and influence over others.

• Shows how to encourage dedication and improve focus in group members. 

Self-discipline and leading effectively: these are the simple and practical principles behind many martial arts techniques that have been used for centuries in combat and in personal development. Those who have integrated these same techniques into their style have excelled in the business arena, many with the help of Robert Pater, a consultant to American Express, Boeing, Intel, and many other Fortune 500 companies. In Leading from Within Pater shows how by using martial arts concepts we can maintain inner calm, influence others by controlling ourselves, develop intuitive judgment, sustain concentration on goals, react quickly to change, and turn minimum effort into maximum gains.
