As the General Manager of the Sir David Martin Foundation, Alex has witnessed the power of engagement when in today’s economy, business people are looking for more; more meaning, more transparency and most of all, more involvement in what they are a part of.
At the heart of the program is the Corporate Athlete Training System. It is grounded in twenty-five years of work with some of the world's greatest athletes to help them perform more effectively under brutal competitive pressures. Clients have included Jim Courier, Monica Seles, and Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario in tennis; Mark O'Meara and Ernie Els in golf; Eric Lindros and Mike Richter in hockey; Nick Anderson and Grant Hill in basketball; and gold medalist Dan Jansen in speed skating. During the past decade, dozens of Fortune 500 companies have paid thousands of dollars to learn the Corporate Athlete training system. So have FBI swat teams, critical care physicians and nurses salesmen, and stay-at-home moms. The Power of Ful Engagement lays out the key training principle and provides a powerful, step-by-step program. Above all, this book provides a life-changing road map to becoming more fully engaged on and off the job, meaning physically energized, emotionally connected, mentally focused, and spiritually aligned.
The Power of Full Engagement: Managing Energy, Not Time, Is the Key to High Performance and Personal Renewal by Jim Loehr and Tony Schwartz is a self-help book for business executives, managers, athletes, and others who feel overwhelmed by the demands of their jobs and who want to improve their effectiveness.
The power of Full engagement is for you. It really helps to recognize the value of replenishing our souls and ourselves in order to bring out our best. We tend to overlook the role that this plays. Loehr/Schwartz not only emphasizes this, but really gives pointers on how to manage your life so that you can optimize your energies, producing even better results than you would see from just working harder. I had heard about this book for a few years before I actually read it. I am sorry that it took me so long to getting around to reading it. It was a powerful book, and will continue to be in my re-read list in the future.
What happens when you unite the authors of two powerful bestselling books: one on applying the secrets of peak athletic performance to the demanding challenges faced by business executives (STRESS FOR SUCCESS), and the other on achieving spiritual growth and fulfillment? Naturally, THE POWER OF FULL ENGAGEMENT -- which shows the reader how to tap new physical, emotional, mental AND spiritual sources of energy to fuel one's success in any endeavors. This has been said to be the most important book on personal effectiveness since THE 7 HABITS OF HIGHLY EFFECTIVE PEOPLE, which is a bold claim indeed. But it's the truth.
