You have to be able to lead yourself….
APPEAL’ing Topic – Leadership . Have you noticed that as you maneuver your life, there is quite a bit of knowledge that is not easily accessible? Even if you are “book-smart,” “street-smart,” or an Internet junkie, many of us are still struggling and looking for answers. What we all wish to be is “access-smart.” In my first book- Gaining A.C.C.E.S.S. to Lead Yourself: 16 Activities Critical to Continuous Evolution & Success for Self, I share my bumps, bruises, and braveries in an effort to help you learn from my mistakes.
The topics addressed
in this book include
- Resume enhancements
- “Executive” presence
- Achieving stretch goals
- Focusing on the next goal
- Getting out of your comfort zone
Available on amazon.com. I’ll be sharing some of the stories from the book on this blog.
