In One Life to Lead, YEC member Russell Benaroya offers a way for entrepreneurs to architect the life they want to design and obtain a level of conscious leadership that will transform the trajectory of their businesses and the people around them.
About This Book:
Behind every business there are leaders doing their best to navigate work alongside the universal challenges we all share—health, relationships, finances, and self-doubt. Facing these daily challenges, all while trying to manage the uncertainties of building a business, can get exhausting. How do we take control of our lives to better lead ourselves in order to more effectively lead others?
Author, entrepreneur, and speaker Russell Benaroya reveals a formula for business success that begins with an intentional approach to design your life. After selling his business and making the bold choice to move his family from Seattle to Costa Rica to nourish relationships and refresh his business outlook, Benaroya designed a new path for himself, one that not only better aligned to the person he wanted to become but embraced the person he is.
In One Life to Lead, Benaroya imparts his five basic design steps to help you, and those you lead, create a foundation for sustainable life and business success. You will learn how to distinguish stories from facts, establish your core principles, harness energy from your environment, and get and stay in your “genius zone” to successfully redesign your life.
Within each design step, Benaroya shares the honest stories of notable business leaders who faced difficult decisions in the face of uncertainty, so that we may learn from their experiences. You’ll see how they redesigned their own paths, took risks, and maintained a high level of curiosity as they sought to better understand themselves and their role as a leader. Complete with exercises, strategies, and first-hand experiences, One Life to Lead will give you the tools you need to clearly and confidently design your life.
