Transform your leadership style with four simple habits.

In this follow up to his bestselling book, How to Lead When You're Not in Charge, pastor Clay Scroggins teaches leaders how to replace chaos with an emotional competence and awareness that will result in a calmer, less stressful, and more fulfilling life.

How to Lead in a World of Distraction describes how to create space for personal evaluation and exploration, because while many leaders have learned how to tune-out distractions that keep them from being productive, they remain deaf to the inner desires and emotions churning beneath the surface. Clay describes spiritual disciplines and tangible daily steps to help you incorporate four noise-cancelling habits into your daily life:

  • Finding simplicity
  • Speaking to yourself
  • Getting quiet
  • Pressing pause

By embracing these habits, business, church, and ministry leaders will be able to identify and understand their emotions and develop a calm, effective, and gratifying leadership style. They'll be able to maximize their influence by turning down the noise.
