Leading YOU: The Power of SELF-LEADERSHIP to Build Your Executive Brand and Drive Career Success by Brenda Bence is one of the best books on leadership I have read since 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey. It is an incredible tool for leaders and anyone who aspires to a position of influence and leadership. The book has great wisdom for anyone seeking to lead a purpose-driven life to create focus and cultivate winning habits. Written for executives, this slim but useful book builds on the premise that one can’t effectively lead others without effective self-leadership. Indeed, how can you get others to follow when they don’t see that you’re a good follower?
Brenda Bence combines the wisdom of many years working as a Senior Executive Coach to create an awareness in readers of the top fifteen damaging self-leadership habits and provide tools and techniques on transforming them. This book will help any executive leader to develop strategies in self-management and self-leadership that will boost their credibility, give them the power they require to effectively lead others, help them pin-point the common weaknesses that are often overlooked by leaders, weaknesses that can wreck their leadership and organization.
Leading YOU: The Power of SELF-LEADERSHIP to Build Your Executive Brand and Drive Career Success lays great foundations for a successful career in leadership, a message that any leader will want to hear. The writing is concise and clear and Brenda Bence’s voice comes across with energy and authority. This is a book with a unique and important take on an aspect of leadership that is so often ignored.
