9780071839983: Becoming Your Best: The 12 Principles of Highly Successful Leaders

Discover the principles that are transforming teams and leaders worldwide

Running a business or department in today’s high-pressure business landscape gets more difficult every year. Given the level of competition, as well as market ups and downs, it seems that you either sacrifice your personal life for your job or you lose everything.

Steve Shallenberger has an important message for you: It doesn’t have to be this way. You can succeed in business and live a happy life at the same time. In fact, if you follow his advice, a satisfying personal life will necessarily follow your leadership success. That’s because it’s all based on timeless truths that apply to every aspect of life, in any business and in any culture.

Becoming Your Best reveals the lessons you need to follow in order to reach your highest potential and drive the kind of innovation that turns good companies into industry leaders—all while living a well-balanced personal life. Learn the 12 principles for developing a culture of excellence, including:

  • Be True to Character
  • Lead with a Vision
  • Prioritize Your Time
  • Innovate through Imagination
  • Be Accountable
  • Live in Peace and Balance
  • Be an Effective Communicator

Divided into three thematic sections—Transformational Leadership, Transformational Teams and Relationships, and Transformational Living—Becoming Your Best is packed with advice, tools, and examples for turning your thoughts into action, motivating yourself and your people, inspiring teams to solve problems creatively, and building the life you’ve always dreamed of.

Read Becoming Your Best and you’ll begin to see everything through a completely new lens—one that reveals change as something to embrace, not fear. You will be armed with the knowledge and tools to measurably improve your life, as well as the lives of your employees and loved ones.

Praise for Becoming your Best
