“It is generally accepted in the business literature that the heart of leadership is leading self. I believe that leading self is also the path to being a ‘responsible’ leader. The important contribution made by Self Leadershipis that it tells you what to do if you want to get better at leading self. Read this book if you desire to be more effective as a leader and remember, "You don't have to be bad at leadership to get better."
Stephen C. Lundin Ph.D., author of the bestseller, Fish!
