Unlock your true leadership potential with this insightful guide
In The Act of Leadership, accomplished coach and author Dan Haesler delivers an insightful treatment of the behaviors and habits required to effectively lead and coach other people.
As a leader, you might know exactly what you need to do, but might be less clear on how to do it. You might know you need to have that difficult conversation, but youesquo;re less sure about how to have it. You might know you need to hold your team accountable, but donksquo;t know how to do it in a manner that builds authentic engagement rather than mere compliance. The Act of Leadership goes beyond the theory. It is a coaching playbook designed to empower you to be the leader you want to be, and the leader your people need you to be.
Most books explain the what and the why of leadership, The Act of Leadership demonstrates the how.

You will also discover the importance of thinking and acting mindfully, instead of on autopilot, using the mindfulness techniques used by World Champions to lead in the moment, sharpen your intent, and increase your impact.
