About the book

The Self-Aware Leader is a unique approach on how to become a more effective leader by increasing self-awareness in four pillars of leadership. By integrating the concepts of reinvention, servant leadership, and business transformation into a single framework that has been validated in research, The Self-Aware Leader emphasizes taking a calculated approach to change rather than merely reacting to change. This book offers two key takeaways; (1) a new mental framework on leadership more appropriate for today s business conditions; and (2) a functional, practical plan for putting the newly learned concepts presented into daily practice. 

The book is also available for sale at www.astd.org or www.amazon.com.
