Read full description of the books:
Designed for “Self Leadership, The Art of Leading Yourself,” this booklet contains 13 images, one for each chapter presenting each topic with a single image. Why? “Because pictures stick,” says the author in the forward. The practical chapters provide stories, self-assessment exercises and assignments to develop the reader in each of the 13 themes. Here are the images and topics:
Image 1: The Iceberg: The iceberg represents your leadership. The 10% above the water is your skill. The 90% below the water is your character. It’s what’s below the water that sinks the ship.
Image 2: The Starving Baker: This is a common hazard for leaders. We’re like the baker who spends so much time baking bread for others, we forget to feed ourselves. Leaders must feed themselves for personal growth.
Image 3: The Golden Buddha: Leaders cannot perform well if they fail to see the gold inside of them. Good leaders take personal inventory of their strengths and gifts. This shapes their self-image and, consequently, their results.
Image 4: The Thermostat and Thermometer: People are either thermostats or thermometers. They will merely reflect the climate around them, or they will set it. Leaders develop values and principles to live by and set the tone for others.
Image 5: The Fun House Mirror: Carnivals often have mirrors that distort how we really look. Poor leaders do this, pretending or posing to be better than they really are. Our level of integrity is the true reflection of who we really are.
Image 6: The Oversized Gift: Leaders are often gifted. They can begin to depend on their gift for success, to the neglect of their character. They begin to “wing it.” Leaders sabotage themselves when their gift is bigger than they are.
Image 7: The Personal Laptop: Our minds work like a computer. They only spit out the data they have been fed. Garbage in, garbage out. Leaders are disciplined about what they store in their mind and heart.
Image 8: The Pop Quiz: Leaders experience tests as they mature. These tests range from motive checks, to authority checks, to integrity checks. They reveal the leader’s potential and maturity, and are a pathway to progress.
Image 9: The Emotional Fuel: A leader’s future is shaped by the people closest to him or her. A leader’s personal network is the emotional fuel: the models, heroes, mentors, inner circle, and accountability partners.
Image 10: The Opportunity Statue: Leaders manage opportunities. Everyone has 86,400 seconds each day to use or abuse. Opportunity is a statue with hair in front, but bald in back - you can’t grab it once it is gone.
Image 11: The Discipline Bridge: Leaders don’t build character without crossing the bridge of discipline. Personal discipline is like a bridge that crosses from where you are to where you want to be. It gets you where you want to go.
Image 12: The Half-Hearted Kamikaze: Kamikaze pilots are only useful if they are committed to their mission. Leaders are the same way. You cannot have involvement without commitment and be effective. It goes with the territory.
Image 13: The Drivers and Passengers: When life goes bad, people blame someone else for the problem. They act like passengers. Leaders realize they are drivers - and are responsible for their attitudes and destination in life.
