Total Leadership
Be a Better Leader, Have a Richer Life
Hardcover      ISBN: 1422103285
Many self-help books are designed to build leadership qualities, but few are designed to adapt those development principles outside of the workplace and into the realm of personal life. Friedman, head of the Leadership Development Center for Ford Motors, has used these concepts to help managers and executives lead balanced and consistent lives outside of work. Step-by-step instruction, examples from real life and hands-on tools in this guide help leaders to accomplish success by acting with authenticity, integrity and creativity.

Creating a Life Worth Living helps the reader search memory for inspiration, understand his or her individual artistic profile, explore possible futures, design a daily process and build a structure of support. Each of the 12 chapters, such as "The Drudge We Do For Dollars" and "Excavating the Future," contains specific exercises and daily tasks that help readers to clarify their desires and create a tangible plan of action for realizing dreams. The book also provides inspiring anecdotes and interviews with people who have succeeded in their chosen fields, such as performance artist Anna Devere Smith, writer Sally Tisdale and filmmaker R. J. Cutler. The pursuit of one's dreams is one of the great joys in life but also one of the most terrifying.
