I’m excited to share a book that represents, what I believe, is the missing link for CEOs of mid-sized growth companies.
Written by my colleague, senior Gravitas Impact coach, Kevin Lawrence, Your Oxygen Mask First is a breakthrough in the art of leadership and self-management.
There are dozens of fantastic tools to learn the nuts and bolts of growing a successful company. And there are a few methodologies, like our Four Decisions scaling up approach, that bring many of those essential tools together to make them more accessible.
The missing link is the CEO factor: the leader themselves and their skills for taking care of themselves first, so they can take better care of their people and their business.
The key point is that it’s a myth that CEOs can build successful companies sustainably by putting everyone else first. In truth, this leads to burn-out and tragedy. It’s a dirty secret we need to talk about.
Kevin wrote Your Oxygen Mask First based on the experiences and tools he gained over 20 years as a coach and advisor.
The book covers the 17 habits Kevin has tried and tested for leaders to lead well AND have a great life. I highly recommend it to any CEO or executive leader.
Book: 231 pgs, 3h46m audio.
