Lead Like You Book

Are You Living and Leading

True to You?

Do you feel like you’re endlessly striving in a world that never stops asking for more?

Giving everything in search of ‘success’ while struggling with stress, guilt, self-doubt, and burnout?

The key to true transformation, radical resiliency, and deep fulfilment lies within: learning to know yourself, care for yourself and truly be yourself, at work and in life.

Lead Like You is the roadmap to this transformation.

Melli O'Brien: Co-Founder of Mindfulness.com

Jo Wagstaff shows us a revolutionary new way of living, leading and working based on authenticity, wisdom and self-awareness.

Using cutting-edge, evidenced-based tools and practices and insightful stories and guidance, she shows us how to escape the trap of hustling, stressing, and burning ourselves out trying to prove our worth; and provides a clear path to a life of true success.

A life where we are able to achieve great things but more importantly also find meaning, purpose and deep satisfaction in life. The world is in need of this kind of wisdom. This is a book whose time has come.”

  • Eat Pray Love of the Corporate World

    This book starts like an Eat Pray Love of the corporate world, but it takes you somewhere deeper and more practical. It offers teachings, wisdom, and guidance through one’s own history, upbringing, and present life so that we can be the very best version of ourselves.  I have to thank Jo Wagstaff for opening her heart and offering her story so that we can all learn how to be true to our authentic selves. Lead Like You is a must-read for anyone on a journey of self-discovery, be it career-orientated or not.
