About the Book

Anyone with executive responsibilities – entrepreneurs, business managers, directors of large organizations, even parents – needs to be focused, in command, and able to make wise decisions at any moment.

Psychologist Michael Kahn interviewed 62 successful executives to understand how they think, react, plan, and even relax. These are not corporate secrets. The key is getting in better touch with your personal operating system and developing strategies to coordinate your mind, body, and emotions to produce an ideal, efficient, executive-performance state.

Anyone can learn and implement their methods. They are applicable to:

• companies wanting to increase staff productivity and creativity,
and decrease stress related work problems,
• businesses committed to the success of newly placed executives,
• ambitious people determined to succeed in career and business and devoted to staying healthy, to have satisfying relationships, and to enjoy life.

If you’ve had this gnawing feeling that you’re capable of more, that life shouldn’t be this stressful, then this practical and compelling guide will empower you to realize your full potential.
