My good friend Dr. Daniel Friedland MD has written a wonderful book entitled “Leading Well from Within” this book is for anyone who is seeking to leverage the stress in their lives and become a better leader in the process.

I know that many of you reading the blog entry are familiar with “conscious leadership” Daniel provides a platform through his book “Leading Well from Within” that gives the reader an entirely new perspective of what it is like to be a conscious leader.  There is a clear correlation between leadership effectiveness and business performance.  Daniel states that “to lead well from within you need to ensure you have the best driver in the driver’s seat to meet life’s demands”.   To become the best driver you need to understand that how your brain reacts to certain stimuli and conditions, and how you are able to learn to control your response is the secret of being a conscious leader.

The difference between being reactive versus being creative is knowing how to reduce and control your stress and removing your self-doubt, while increasing your inspiration.  All of this activity occurs in various areas of your brain, and you can learn how to modulate this through being mindful.  “Leading Well from Within” is the guidebook for any leader wanting to improve their responses to circumstances and events that if handled properly could become the turning point to improving their outlook about the situation, and the outlook of all those that depend upon a well centered and focused leader.

Larry Senn the author of “Up the Mood Elevator” is one of the most engaging and interesting authors I have interviewed in quite sometime.  

As you listen to our interview together you certainly will see why he wrote about moods and living life at your best.  Larry is the co-founder of a organizational consulting firm called Senn Delaney which just merged with Heidrick and Struggles.  The work that Larry has been involved in for the last 40 years has been cultural and personal transformational consulting.  At its core, Larry will tell you that if people don’t change, then the organization has no chance of changing.

His new book “Up the Mood Elevator” is packed solid with profound principles, fascinating concepts and practical tools to improve one’s ride up and down the mood elevator.    As Larry states in our interview once you understand what causes your mood and emotional changes, the better prepared you are to manage them successfully.   I encourage you to listen and learn while Larry Senn and I explore the in and outs , ups and downs of moods and the simple ways we can control our minds to have a better ride on the mood elevator.
