About this title:

Synopsis: A Wall Street Journal Bestseller

For nearly thirty years, my life’s work has been to help people like you find ways to bring the often warring aspects of life into greater harmony.” Stew Friedman, from Leading the Life You Want

You’re busy trying to lead a full” life. But does it really feel full or are you stretched too thin? Enter Stew Friedman, Wharton professor, adviser to leaders across the globe, and passionate advocate of replacing the misguided metaphor of work/life balance” with something more realistic and sustainable. If you’re seeking balance” you’ll never achieve it, argues Friedman. The idea that work” competes with life” ignores the more nuanced reality of our humanity the interaction of four domains: work, home, community, and the private self. The goal is to create harmony among them instead of thinking only in terms of trade-offs. It can be done.

Building on his national bestseller, Total Leadership, and on decades of research, teaching, and practice as both consultant and senior executive, Friedman identifies the critical skills for integrating work and the rest of life. He illustrates them through compelling original stories of these remarkable people:

former Bain & Company CEO and Bridgespan co-founder Tom Tierney
Facebook COO and bestselling author Sheryl Sandberg
nonprofit leader and US Navy SEAL Eric Greitens
US First Lady Michelle Obama
soccer champion-turned-broadcaster Julie Foudy
renowned artist Bruce Springsteen

Each of these admirable (though surely imperfect) people exemplifies a set of skills for being real, being whole, and being innovative that produce a sense of purpose, coherence, and optimism.

Based on interviews and research, their stories paint a vivid picture of how six very different leaders use these skills to act with authenticity, integrity, and creativity and they prove that significant public success is accomplished not at the expense of the rest of life, but as the result of meaningful engagement in all its parts. With dozens of practical exercises for strengthening these skills, curated from the latest research in organizational psychology and related fields, this book will inspire you, inform you, and instruct you on how to take realistic steps now toward leading the life you truly want.

About the Author: Since 1984 Stew Friedman has been teaching at Wharton, where he is the Practice Professor of Management. In 1991 he founded both the Wharton Leadership Program initiating the required MBA and Undergraduate leadership courses and the Wharton Work/Life Integration Project. Stew served in the mental health field before earning his PhD in organizational psychology from the University of Michigan. In 2001 he concluded a two-year assignment (while on leave from Wharton) at Ford, as the senior executive for leadership development. Stew is the author of Baby Bust: New Choices for Men and Women in Work and Family (Wharton Digital, 2008) and Total Leadership: Be a Better Leader, Have a Richer Life (Harvard Business Review Press, 2014). The Total Leadership program is used worldwide, including by the 57,000+ students in Stew’s recent Coursera MOOC. He advises many organizations, gives high-energy keynotes, and is an award-winning teacher. The New York Times cited the rock star adoration” he inspires in students. He was chosen by Working Mother as one of America’s twenty-five most influential men to have made things better for working parents, and by Thinkers50 as one of the world’s top fifty business thinkers.” The Families and Work Institute honored him with a Work Life Legacy Award.
