Where Does Leadership Begin?
Leadership is a choice. It's a skill you can develop over time. And it's work - it often requires digging deep into who you are as a person, your strengths, your weaknesses, your biases you might not even be aware of. But on the other side is growth, both personally and professionally, and a team of people who will want to work for and with you.
In Where Leadership Begins, Dan Freschi explores psychiatrist Dr. William Glasser's choice theory and how it underlies all our relationships, especially as leaders. He discusses the five main choices we make as leaders: choosing to be self-aware, to be authentic, to be humble, to be vulnerable, and to be courageous, and why those choices are instrumental to our transformation as leaders.
Throughout the book, Dan shares some of his own choices that shaped his own evolution as a leader.
