Everyone possesses the ability to have a successful life. What is success to one may not be success to another, but not everyone can execute great leadership in their success. What is a great leader? The Mindset of Success: From Good Management to Great Leadership by Jo Owen outlines the traits of 33 people from diverse backgrounds that include business, non-profit, government, politics, and sports that have succeeded in this arena. The findings for The Mindset of Success: From Good Management to Great Leadership by Jo Owen come from interviews and watching these leaders in their own environments execute these leadership qualities. There are several things that these great leaders have in common: high aspirations, courage, resilience, positivity, collaborative skills, accountability and growth, but they also possess the ability to sacrifice, display drive, work hard and learn from their failures. Another thing that separates a great leader is how they view, process and execute things; it’s all in the mindset.

The Mindset of Success: From Good Management to Great Leadership by Jo Owen is a great tool in teaching how one can acquire a great mindset for success. As Jo stated in this book, some things can be hard to learn like charisma and intelligence, but it’s possible. In changing our mindset, we are going against our innate abilities in making this type of paradigm shift, but with a vision or a purpose outside of ourselves, it creates the motivation to work towards the change. If you need a tool to help you along your journey to being a great leader, pick up your copy of The Mindset of Success: From Good Management to Great Leadership by Jo Owen.
