How to replace inner chaos with an emotional awareness that will maximize your influence and result in a calmer, less stressful, and more fulfilling life.
While many leaders train themselves on how to tune-out external distractions that keep them from being productive, they remain deaf to the inner desires and emotions churning beneath the surface. Pastor and author Clay Scroggins describes spiritual disciplines and tangible daily steps to help you incorporate four noise-cancelling habits into your daily life:
- Finding simplicity how does simplicity bring clarity?
- Speaking to yourself you're not crazy. Many of us do it; and there are real benefits!
- Getting quiet silence is difficult. Why emotionally healthy leaders make time for it.
- Pressing pause what does the word sabbath even mean, and why is it so important--on both a practical and a spiritual level?
By embracing these habits--business, church, and ministry leaders will be able to identify and understand their emotions and develop a calm and effective leadership style.
In this follow up to his bestselling book, How to Lead When You're Not in Charge, Clay Scroggins focuses on the real dangers of distraction and how to create space for personal evaluation and exploration.
