"Right Brain/Left Brain President: Barack Obama's Uncommon Leadership Ability and How We Can Each Develop It" is an inspirational guide to leadership as it should be practiced, conveyed through an up-close look at the man who sets the new leadership bar. Author Mary Lou Decosterd uses her Right Brain/Left Brain Leadership Model to frame Barack Obama's leadership skill sets. Her book shows that Obama's unique brand of leadership is the result of his extraordinary ability to leverage full-brain potential in the ways he thinks, decides, and acts.

"Right Brain/Left Brain President" examines Obama's life and the Obama phenomenon, analyzing how he rose to prominence so quickly and what that teaches us. The president is used as an example of the ten full-spectrum behaviors--the must-have leadership skills--that make one an extraordinary leader. To help readers emulate the Obama model and become the most consummate leaders possible, Decosterd discusses how each of us can learn to lead from both right and left brain abilities.
