Read The Freedom Challenge by Brenda Oliver

The Freedom Challenge: Mastering Emotions, Restoring Honour to Leadership is a motivational and inspirational book for leaders wanting to escalate their performance and transform their lives, relationships, and careers. Brenda helps leaders uncover personal challenges and determine what holds them back from achieving personal success, becoming happier, healthier, and enjoying peace of mind.

The Freedom Challenge provides great insight for individuals who want to achieve both personal and professional success. The reader is provided with an understanding of what is required to master emotions as well as what skills must be developed to become a great leader in all areas of one’s life. I found the chapter “Achieving Best Performance” was exceptional in dealing with such areas as being emotionally intelligent, choosing one’s attitude, linking productivity, developing accountability, and setting expectations. The author provides insight into communicating strategically and engaging people – skills that are critical in our day-to-day life and our career success. She concludes the chapter with a listing of the twenty-one principles of honourable leadership. This book is an excellent resource for people from all walks of life. I congratulate Brenda Oliver on this excellent book, and would recommend it for your management library without hesitation.
