THE LEADERS GUIDE TO
We’re thrilled to announce Dr Audrey Tang’s new book - The Leader’s Guide To Wellbeing - will be published in 2023.
This new book is the last in the ‘Leader’s Guide To...’ trillogy, and supports wellbeing as a core function of leadership.
Soosalu & Oka talk about "mBraining" - Multiple Brain Intergration Techniques...also known as mBIT. Simply the premise is that one is driven by the instinct of:
The Head: Cognitive perception, Meaning, Thinking / reasoning / planning
The Heart: Emotion, Personal values, Relationships
The Gut: Core identity, Survival and self preservation, Impulse and mobilisation to action
In terms of leadership the Head is expressed through creativity, the Heart compassion and the Gut courage. In an ideal situation, the heart would draw us to what we are passionate about, the head then finds a way to make it work collaboratively and successfully, and the gut makes us brave enough to take the plunge - if we listen to it!
The Leader’s Guide to Wellbeing remembers that through any change it is people that are most valuable – as support, as catalysts, as leaders and team players - but many organisations only care as far as managing a resource. However, when you care because of the human involved, and create and build and grow to nurture and sustain them, you will flourish at every level.
Clear your head, summon your gut, and open your heart – that is the call of the sustainable Leader.
THE LEADERS GUIDE TO
Organisational resilience extends beyond competitive advantage. In times of crisis you need to SURVIVE, REBUILD and then THRIVE.
“The Leader’s Guide to Resilience” is your accessible, concise and effective toolkit to build authentic strength as a leader and within your business so you can stay standing in crisis, regroup despite exhaustion, and thrive through competition within an intense, changing and challenging world.
The Leader's Guide to Resilience was awarded "Highly Commended" (2nd place) in category of Leadership at The Business Book Awards, 2022, and won a Firebird Book Award (2021) for Business, Leadership & Motivation. Listen to Audrey’s Interview with Speak Up Talk Radio HERE
