More Than a Book. . . . An Interactive Coaching Experience "A spiritual journey that will take you to a new and inspiring understanding of leadership." –Warren Bennis, Distinguished Professor of Business, USC and coauthor of Geeks and Geezers: How Era, Values and Defining Moments Shape Leaders "Awakening the Leader Within helps leaders to go beyond meeting their performance goals to achieving their life's destiny. Don't read this book if you are only concerned with your personal success. Read it if you are ready to begin the journey to a higher calling to really make a difference in the world." –Ron James, President and CEO of the Center for Ethical Business Cultures, former division president and CEO of Ceridian Corporation and former CEO for US West Communications—Minnesota "Kevin Cashman's storytelling draws you in and forces you to explore the inner and outer terrain of your life and how it impacts the whole. It's refreshing to read a business book that motivates and provides the practices to become a more conscious leader, yet allows enough space to interpret your own legacy." –Ann Bancroft, polar explorer (first woman to reach North and South Poles and ski across Antarctica), Cofounder of yourexpedition, and coauthor of No Horizon Is So Far "It is often said that we live our lives in the present but understand them in the past. Awakening the Leader Within is a terrific reflection and self-coaching tool to close the insight gap which often stands in the way of maximum success and personal fulfillment." –Michael A. Peel, Senior Vice President Human Resources and Corporate Services, General Mills, Inc. "Once you start reading Awakening the Leader Within, you won't set it down. Cashman doesn't let you off the hook until you contemplate how you will live your life differently." –Tom Debrowski, Executive Vice President Worldwide Operations, Mattel, Inc.
