A Leadership Kick in the Ass

A Leadership Kick in the Ass

There are two types of leaders, those who have been humbled, and those who are about to be. Sooner or later, every leader runs into a wall of incompetence, weakness, or hubris that Treasurer calls “the leadership kick in the ass.” Do you derail from being a leader or learn from scraping your knees? Treasurer finds that the most difficult problem leaders face is finding the right midpoint between overconfidence and indecisiveness or weakness. Just about all leaders land on the wrong side of this tough balance at some point—and that’s when they get their asses kicked. Although most leaders say it can be a very valuable experience, Steve Jobs, who definitely favored one side, famously said, “Getting fired was the best thing that ever happened to me.” A Leadership Kick in the Ass is a survival guide, coach, and morale booster to help the reader master the art of “confident humility.” If you succeed, the next place you get kicked might be upstairs.

  • The Five Thieves of Happines

    The Five Thieves of Happines

    Happiness is our natural state, for each of us and for humanity as a whole, argues John Izzo. But that happiness is being stolen by insidious mental patterns that he depicts as thieves: the thief of control, the thief of conceit, the thief of coveting, the thief of consumption, and the thief of comfort. He discovered these thieves as he sought the true source of happiness during a year-long sabbatical, walking the Camino de Santiago in Spain and living in the Andes of Peru. The Five Thieves of Happiness describes the disguises these thieves wear, the tools they use to break into our hearts, and how to lock them out once and for all. It shows how these same thieves of personal happiness are destroying society as well. This thoughtful and inspiring book will help us all discover, develop, and defend the happiness that is our true nature while creating a world we all want to live in.
