The Self-Aware Leader

Everyone loves a good book recommendation right? Well I know we do here at Accent Group. My current assigned textbook in Team Leadership at Oakland University is The Self-Aware Leader: A Proven Model for Reinventing Yourself  by Daniel Gallagher. After reading just one chapter in the book I knew it was just something I had to share. Gallagher is a Fortune 100 Executive and he shares his distinctive approach on how to become the best leader one can be by increasing self-awareness from a business aspect. He offers a modern outlook on how management is always quickly changing. Two key points of the book is a new psychological structure on leadership that’s applicable to today’s business and concrete strategy to apply the new concepts and ideas into action.

Achieving Goals

Forbes Magazine published an article on How to Be  A Super Achiever. Here at Accent Group, Inc. submitting goals and achieving them is one of the most important aspects of our business. Without goals, there is no room for growth. Setting goals is a process that helps one plan for the future and keeps up motivation to turn dreams into reality.

So how do the most successful people do what they do and get to where they want? Authors and Husband/Wife Camille Sweeney and Josh Gosfield went out and found exactly what they were looking for. By meeting with people who are the best at what they do, they found that they all possessed similar qualities that were the keys to their success.

Here are the top ten qualities that these leaders has in common:

  • Dedication To A Vision
