Jo and I often refer to this amazing book by cultural anthropologist Angeles Arrien as our 'bible' for personal leadership and growth.
Angeles Arrien is an award winning author, educator and consultant who works with individuals, organisations and business to explore how to 'walk the mystical path with practical feet'.
This book is designed to increase our respect for nature, ourselves and each other and to enhance our ability to work cooperatively and creatively in teams. The wisdom and exercises it contains can be applied to business and to life – so much so that we recommend the Four Fold Way to all our clients as a must read when they participate in any of our biz coaching or leadership programs!
SARKs books and resources are loads of fun and are guaranteed to get the creative juices flowing.
This journal or 'playbook' is a great accompaniment to any personal or business development work you may be doing – the perfect place to capture and record the dreams, visions and goals you create for your life and business.
Our tip: Treat yourself to a set of colourful pens and pencils to go along with it!
Maria is a former Fortune 500 trailblazer who, after serving for twenty-plus years as an executive in businesses valued at upwards of $100 million, left the corporate world to become “Chief Change Agent” of her company NMS Communications.
In this book, Maria shares her vast business skills, life experience, and knowledge of universal laws to help executives and entrepreneurs alike claim their ability to lead profitable, effective businesses that are providing great value to those they serve, and become both conscious and conscientious authentic leaders.
Although I haven't read this book yet (it's on my list!) I am utterly convinced of Maria's wisdom after speaking with her for our recent telesummit. She is an inspirational women and I have already re-listened to our chat several times!
This book is all about success and how to cultivate the mindset you need to get it. Written by Napolean Hill way back when (1937 I think) this book and the principles it contains has been used by thousands to achieve great things.
And if you are driven by more than money and riches, don't let the title put you off. You can use what Hill discovered in over 500 interviews with highly successful people to obtain anything you desire, including making a BIG difference in the world!
Although parts of the book challenged me greatly (written from a white anglo saxon male perspective for example) there is no doubt that there is some inspiring and thought-provoking stuff in here. My biggest takeaway learning? You must believe madly, deeply passionately in what you working towards and never give up! I can see what this is one of the best-selling books of all time.
