The Art of Leading Yourself

Intellect and technical knowledge alone can’t get you where you want to go, but combine them with Emotional Intelligence (EI), and you become unstoppable. By learning to access EI, you can use the information and creative power of your emotions to improve and guide your thinking. Like a personal coach, The Art of Leading Yourself speaks to your head and your heart – the first leadership/self-development book that actually places a high value on all your emotions.


Becoming aware of your feelings – and learning to manage them – will enable you to:

  • Recognize and remove obstacles
  • Motivate yourself and inspire others
  • Create more satisfying relationships at home and at work
  • Become a true leader, not a follower

The Art of Leading Yourself will help you fulfill your dreams, make better choices, and develop more meaning and joy, both at work and at home.
