Synopsis: MPACT is a short, to the point yet powerful leadership book for aspiring leaders making the climb in corporate america. The book takes focus off of ourselves and places it where it belongs, with our People! The book walks through ten stepping-stones to help aspiring leaders to increase their level of influence, MPACT and over-all success in leadership, in life and in business. The author is a regular guy who has made the climb successfully that some of you are on right now. This book, by its nature seeks to prove that you can do anything you put your mind to. It says to anyone seeking to do something special, “Why not me?” You will read about the true value of people, passion, goals, real life stories, life lessons and all the while, pure faith remains at the core of it all. If nothing else is achieved from this book, Leonhardt hopes to drive home his “People First Philosophy” for without people, the climb is a waste of time. Step through this little book and reflect upon your own climb and enjoy this positive value system that is so simple, anyone can adopt it. Enjoy the journey and go change some lives!
Synopsis: The pursuit of more can be a most excellent thing. Take self-improvement, for example. A better you adds more value to the lives of friends, family, and colleagues. A better you has more to offer the world—whether it’s helping others reach their goals, identifying talent in someone else, insights, or numerous other contributions. The only way you can do this is if you are becoming more.
So, how can you achieve this greater self?
Author Brian A. Willett presents seven areas where pursuing more, whether it be qualitative or quantitative, is better:
Faith and hope
Beginning with health, Willett emphasizes that by living a healthier lifestyle, you will feel better and be able to accomplish more and work on improving other areas of your life. Moving on, he points out that, although formal education is a valuable resource, it is equally important to be a lifelong learner.
These may seem like simple insights, but we often overlook them because we disregard their significance. Consider your spare time. You’re probably wondering where it fits into the game plan for success. The truth is, what you do in your spare time determines what you achieve in all areas of your life.
