Think all strategic leadership books are dry and boring? Then you NEED to read this book.
I have to say right off the bat that Change The Way You SEE Everything Through Asset-Based Thinking was an absolute treat to read!
Not only is the cover beautifully designed, every page provides a glimpse of future leadership opportunities and brighter possibilities to achieve more in life.
This book review was written only 2 hours after receiving the book in the mail. As soon as I opened the package and saw the book with it’s vibrant cover and brilliant picture illustrations, I began to read.
"If a picture is worth a thousand words, then get ready to become inspired by this authoritative book on strategic leadership and asset-based thinking."
And I kept on reading for the next 45 minutes until I finished the book. I seldom become engrossed in a book like I did in this particular case. The author's obviously understand human behavior and the power held within the human spirit.
This simple, yet highly thought-provoking leadership guide instructs the reader on how to make very small, strategic shifts for how you should perceive the world, its many challenges, obstacles and opportunities.
Change the Way You See Everything: Through Asset-Based Thinking is more than just “thinking positively”. ABT offers solid leadership suggestions for living on the side of life where the grass is truly greener than its oh-so-dreary and destructive counterpart.
Whether you are an executive, department manager, athlete, doctor, farmer or other – you CAN benefit from this unique collection of strategic leadership lessons and activities. Just a few of the high-value strategic leadership ideas you will learn, include how to:
Asset-based thinking is a personal choice you can make multiple times every day of your life - provided you begin now to form the life changing leadership habits that lead to success.
Imagine how much time we would all save and how more grand life would be if we all held the wisdom and self-discipline to magnify and celebrate what is best in us. Then, to be able to quickly turn our attention to proactively tackle what is next on the list of great things to DO.
When I read this strategic leadership lesson, I had to just stop and think about those words, “Magnify What’s Best and Focus on What’s Next.”
This is a perfect example of why this book, Change The Way You SEE Everything Through Asset-Based Thinking had such a powerful impact on me.
What a gift it is to understand that there is real power and grace in being able to mentally take yourself out of any situation for a brief moment in order to assess the situation from the eye of an observer – then, step back into the situation and respond accordingly. Powerful indeed!
Just think for a moment what could be possible in your own life if you were to improve your leadership effectiveness by focusing your attention on:
"When you change the way you see things, the things you see change."
Once you are in the habit of focusing your attention on the good rather than the bad, you will find that fears, anxieties and sleeplessness; will be quickly replaced by enthusiasm, optimism, energy and fulfillment.
