Alpesh Fadia goes as far as to say that “The main downfall and gaffes of past and modern era leaders are a result of a lack of emphasis on effective personal leadership. Few books and training courses on leadership give attention to the significance of being a personal leader. In fact, many only emphasize self-awareness, which is just one of the five crucial behaviors required to become an effective self-leader.”
"Learning to be an effective personal leader can help eliminate many of the unnecessary self-induced problems we have created, including a severe economic downturn, loss of morals, respect and value for fellow beings. Learning from my own experiences, self-leadership offers a unique opportunity to establish that solid foundation absent in many individuals. Becoming that effective personal leader can then help people turn into valuable public leaders we so desperately need today and for many generations thereafter. It is for this reason I created this self-coaching guide." stated Alpesh Fadia, the author of this enriching manual.
Alpesh’s work describes the five critical behaviors of effective personal leadership that naturally lead to the abilities needed to become a public leader. His guide offers actionable advice and directs the reader to some of the most fundamental issues and experiences in the life of a leader.
The book teaches how to become deeply self-aware and find guidance and strength by focusing inward. It also offers tools to take negative experiences and turn them into positive learning and growth opportunities. The manuscript explains how creating a written plan can, and will, greatly improve your chance of success by offering a step-by-step guide.
Traditional leadership methods, unfortunately, have not provided the promised return on investment, leaving us unfulfilled of the leaders we had hoped to generate. The author, as a result, urges for a new approach in which an individual becomes a powerful personal leader before taking the path of public leadership. And even if one is already a public leader, cultivating the personal leadership behaviors can be immediately applied into exercising their leadership of others, therefore making him/her a more impactful individual.
As we know, a leader has the power to change lives, improve the world, change destinies and inspire others. But if this power is used improperly then a leader can do just as much, or more, damage as good. One should therefore prudently choose the correct path to leadership.
Strong and reliable decisions are born from self-confidence and the complete assurance that one can master oneself first. By becoming an effective personal leader one becomes a role-model and a limitless source of inspiration to others because s/he made the correct decision to first construct a strong foundation.
“Today, we are standing at the crossroads. We can either continue our traditional ways or employ a sensible approach to leadership development. The strategies and tactics offered in the book lead the aspiring leader on the path to becoming a successful character and help him/her achieve all the virtues that create a valuable public leader.” stated Alpesh Fadia.
Alpesh has built his career as a business and human-potential consultant, and has more than 20 years of experience working at Accenture, Ernst &Young, Deloitte, Panasonic and as an independent practitioner. His approach focuses on meaningful individual and organizational potential and transformation.
Seeing that more than 202 million people were unemployed globally by the end of 2013 and that 8.8 million Americans lost their job during the Great Recession between 2007 and 2009, Alpesh aims to help more people become successful personal leaders by sharing the model and behaviors he has learned.
