From the #1 award-winning author of Be a Change Agent.

The definition of success and personal achievement is not universal as success comes in different shapes and sizes and at different life stages for everyone. For those looking at where they are and where they want to be and wondering how to get there, do not look any further. Using real-life examples, Dr. Dele Ola presents proven, practicable, and timeless principles to guide you on your journey to great achievements, a journey he calls, "the pursuit of personal leadership."

Dr. Ola has learned that you can only attract great achievements and make great impacts through a process of personal change and imbibing the culture and discipline of successful people. The world must make room for someone who has discovered, and has the desire and determination, to develop and exploit their gifts, talents, and abilities to establish themselves in what they have determined to be their exact purpose and calling in life.

In Pursuit of Personal Leadership, Dr. Ola highlights a missing piece in leadership literature, which is the discovery of one's personal identity. He explains the need for a personal blueprint for success and how to develop your blueprint. Learn how to cultivate the necessary personal leadership attitudes, exploit your creativity, discover and establish your life's work, explore the world of possibilities, and understand the five seasons of personal leadership every successful person experiences.

Most importantly, all successful agents of change should understand and embrace the responsibilities of role modeling success and leaving a legacy.
