Description :

Developing Inner Leadership

This 136 page Developing Inner Leadership e-book, written by Ralph Lewis, is your essential guide to coaching and will quickly give you a solid grounding in the subject.

The tools within this e-book can be used when coaching others or for their own personal and professional development.


Inner Leadership is about being true to yourself and doing what you need to do because it is right for you. It doesn’t matter to the Inner Leader whether they have followers or not – their own inner vision is what counts for them.

It’s about honouring and respecting yourself without the arrogance of certainty. And if the Inner Leader truly honours and values him or herself, then they will honour and value others as well.
