Summary

What if you could improve your performance in the areas that seem to be most at odds with each other - work and life beyond work - at the same time? Most of us assume it can't be done. But contrary to the conventional wisdom, the different domains of our lives don't have to compete in a zero-sum game. However, managing them takes real leadership skill. Adapted from author Stew Friedman's popular Wharton School course, Total Leadership will help you identify your core values - what's fundamentally important to you - and make them come alive in your everyday actions at work, at home, in your community, and within yourself.

By improving these areas of life simultaneously, you'll get more done with less stress. Friedman's approach has been pressure-tested by years of working with people at every level of experience, in companies large and small. His step-by-step instruction, engaging examples, and more than thirty hands-on tools will help you create sustainable change and achieve higher levels of performance in all parts of your life.

Total Leadership offers a compelling new framework that enables you to:

  • Be real: Act with authenticity by clarifying what's importantâ¿¢ Be whole: Act with integrity by respecting the whole person
  • Be innovative: Act with creativity by experimenting to find new solutions
  • Gain greater clarity of purpose, accomplish more at work, and feel more connected to the people and causes that matter most to you.

    Leadership can - and indeed must - be learned. But first you've got to choose to lead. If you're going to make a difference, thinking of yourself as a leader will make it more likely that your legacy - not your fantasy, but the real impact of your life, today and in the long run - is the one you really want.

    Bad Narration

    The content of this book seems interesting, but after 2 hours of trying to keep up with the narrator (author) and the abrupt stops, pauses, and incorrect inflections - I had to give up. Alas, with audiobooks, the narration is very important and an area that many books fail on - this being one of them.

    Wish I could exchange the audiobook for a printed version.
