How You Can Succeed by Harnessing the Power of Your Values, Feelings, and Intuition
by Dr. John Townsend
As a leader, your decisions have a significant impact on yourself and others. To be an effective leader, you need to have more than just logic, facts, and financials to help make the best decisions. You also must access your own intuition, that gut feeling inside.
Dr. John Townsend knows that a leader’s internal world—the world of intuition, creativity, emotion, and spirituality—is just as important as the external world of data and best practices. Who you are on the inside determines your success as a leader even more than the things you do or the things you know.
In Leading from Your Gut, you’ll learn how to excel not just through external competencies and skills but by drawing on your internal world and personal experience. You’ll explore how to harness the power of your values, thoughts, emotions, and relationships to better meet the complex demands of leadership.
As you apply the principles in this book, you’ll experience the kind of personal transformation that will enable you to lead as a whole person.
Whether you’re an emerging or veteran leader, Leading from Your Gut will help you hone your intuition and grow as an effective and successful leader.
WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING
“In Leading from Your Gut, John Townsend builds on the vital leadership ingredients of smarts and vision and the ability to motivate others with the more intangible quality of “gut,” which is essential to actually accomplishing change that lasts. Hands down, my new favorite leadership book.”
