A Systematic Approach to Leadership Transcendence
THE HIDDEN YOU AND YOUR LEADERSHIP EVOLUTION
“John Slone quickly connects with his reader on an ambitious subject, and he does it with a very open, unpretentious style. If you are looking for a leadership mentor, this is the perfect book for anyone who wants to enhance their personal leadership talent.” —John Sculley Apple, Former CEO
“The Hidden You and Your Leadership Evolution provides the essential foundation for effective leadership, whether you are a senior executive, an aspiring leader, or an individual contributor that interacts with others. To be effective, you have to first understand your own ‘inner you’ and be mindful of the internal drivers of those with whom you interact or seek to lead. Understanding both will accelerate your leadership effectiveness and business agility. Congratulations to Mr. Slone for dissecting and demystifying the toughest part of leadership, a topic seldom discussed in leadership books due to its complexity.” —Robert Saxe Managing Director, nVision Consulting Group
“As an emerging leader to the world of leadership transcendence, John’s guidance and education with The Hidden You is an eye opener. I look at the world and my interaction with people and situations completely different. I now understand the importance of influence, time, and transcendent leadership foundation described in this book. What's more encouraging is that I can see the results of this foundation both in personal and professional life.” —Pundari Pothini Managing Principal of Advanced Consulting Pivot Technology Solutions
“The Hidden You and Your Leadership Evolution is unique in its exploration of the physiological and psychological elements of leadership development. In the book, John Slone’s concepts of ‘move,’ ‘adapt,’ or ‘be left behind’ capture the essence of the leadership journey. By following Slone’s principles, every leader can foster organizational growth and leverage failures to build a confident path to ultimate success.” —Brett Bertz VP Implementation Services, MedAssets
“Slone has done an excellent job of creating a fascinating overview of leadership psychology that he crystallizes into three simple points, which he punctuates with engaging stories of two Civil War–era leaders. This approach makes it both a great reference and a meaningful read.” —Ajay Kapoor CEO, TouchSource
“This is not a typical book on leadership; it is a compelling and insightful read blending science, experience, and emotion. A completely different way of looking at leadership and how you can excel.” —Denise Cox Vice President, Americas Technical Services at Cisco
“The Hidden You is thought-provoking and authentic. John Slone’s talented and inspirational writing engages his readers on a one-on-one conversation that is real and intriguing. Every chapter is filled with nuggets of wisdom that unveil the surface and draw you in to see the underlying root causes of one’s behavior and interactions with others. Here is a book that is powerfully poised to help one release the awesome leadership potential trapped within.” —Anna Leon Canadian Vice President of Business Development, Pivot Technology Solutions
