What others are saying about Becoming a Holistic Leader:

As a seasoned leader, it was inspiring to reflect upon how holistic I am or could become from reading Jim Taggart‘s Holistic Leader e-Book. Taggart’s curiosity, experience, examples and his model encourages reflection and change. Whether you are a new or inspiring leader or a mid-life leader, I would recommend taking this e-journey from this leadership Sherpa.

A holistic leader has learned to master work skills, people skills and self skills. In this book, “How to Become a Holistic Leader,” the author asks readers the questions unobtrusively and compels them to think about themselves in their personal, work and community lives. When reflecting on and answering these questions, readers come away with advice and a truly useful pathway which can help both beginners and industry veterans to enhance their leadership abilities. Great book which promotes greater reflection on the part of the reader.
