yollie ★★★★★

Thank you Andy for sharing this book it was very useful for me and the funny thing is that I believe in the same concepts of find ones' true essence and it was like I identified with the contents so much.

Vinicius Munhoz ★★★★★

Great book concerning self-awareness

Brenda C. Nichols ★★★★★

I highly recommend this book to people who want to discover their strengths and weaknesses. Self-assessment is important in establishing a career and I find this material of great help.

Description

When we see people being authentically themselves we call it things like “individuality” and “charisma” - yet how can we be our true selves when we have so many demanding roles to fulfil in life? This book explores how you can find your authentic self, understand who you really are and as a result relate to others much more effectively. It explores how you can be more yourself in the workplace, particularly in management and leadership roles.
