Inner Leadership is a book about creating inspiration and emotional engagement during times of change — both in ourselves and other people. Please don’t read it. Or, rather, please don’t only read it.
You do not learn to swim by reading a book about swimming and the same applies to inner leadership. You also need to practice.
The book provides a series of questions and tools that, step by step, enable you to strengthen the seven competencies of Inner Leadership. They help you learn to create inspiration in your way by finding your answers that are relevant to your situation. Some tools will be more immediately relevant for where you are today but all activities build towards what comes next so we strongly recommend you try all the activities at least once.
To make this easier, Inner Leadership comes with a free downloadable workbook. You can also purchase a large format paperback workbook or simply use pen and paper.
Every musician knows that the way to get to Carnegie Hall is through practice, practice, practice. Inner Leadership provides a series of very practical tools, arranged in order, that enable you to get to whatever the equivalent of ‘Carnegie Hall’ looks like for you. But you do need to practice them.
Do you know what your equivalent of ‘Carnegie Hall’ is? Are you practicing the skills that will inspire you and others to take you there?
