Insights From The Leadership Whisperer

Intentional Leadership – Be the exception

Intentional Leadership – Be the exception

What follows is a slightly adapted version of inspiring words from Robin Sharma, in his great book “The 5am Club” – which I read (devoured) and took on the challenge to practice it every morning for the recommended 66 days (yes, that means rising at 5am every morning, and using your first hour, at least, for a combination of exercise, meditation and learning!). I highly recommend the book!
