  • 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.

What will you learn?

Lead Like You invites you on a transformational inner journey to return to yourself and the life you want to lead.

This roadmap has been crafted in three parts…

Know yourself
An opportunity to deeply reflect on why it can be so hard to live and lead true to ourselves and what may be limiting you.
Care for yourself
Self-compassion, practical self-care and boundaries as the essential foundations for radical resiliency and inner confidence.
Be yourself
Gain clarity on your values, purpose and vision and the power of authenticity to transform how we live, love, lead and succeed.

Ultimately, this book offers a roadmap to help you explore your story and realise your worth.

It is about exploring the groundbreaking concept that true and sustainable success is not about working harder but about living and leading true to yourself – from the inside out, from a sense of wholeness.

This is the roadmap for the inner work of extraordinary sustainable leadership, not just in the office but in every facet of life.
