Description

THIS IS A BUSINESS LEADERSHIP BOOK, BUT IT’S NOT ABOUT HOW TO LEAD OTHERS. IT’S ABOUT HOW TO LEAD YOURSELF.

Behind every business there are leaders doing their best to navigate work alongside the universal challenges we all share—health, relationships, finances, and self-doubt. Facing these daily challenges, all while trying to manage the uncertainties of building a business, can get exhausting. How do we take control of our lives to better lead ourselves in order to more effectively lead others?

Author, entrepreneur, and speaker Russell Benaroya reveals a formula for business success that begins with an intentional approach to design your life. After selling his business and making the bold choice to move his family from Seattle to Costa Rica to nourish relationships and refresh his business outlook, Benaroya designed a new path for himself, one that not only better aligned to the person he wanted to become but embraced the person he is.

In One Life to Lead, Benaroya imparts his five basic design steps to help you, and those you lead, create a foundation for sustainable life and business success. You will learn how to distinguish stories from facts, establish your core principles, harness energy from your environment, and get and stay in your “genius zone” to successfully redesign your life.

Within each design step, Benaroya shares the honest stories of notable business leaders who faced difficult decisions in the face of uncertainty, so that we may learn from their experiences. You’ll see how they redesigned their own paths, took risks, and maintained a high level of curiosity as they sought to better understand themselves and their role as a leader. Complete with exercises, strategies, and first-hand experiences, One Life to Lead will give you the tools you need to clearly and confidently design your life.

"With the pace of change, societal divisiveness, technological advances and innumerable daily pulls on our time it certainly can seem as if our lives are completely out of our control. In Russell Benaroya’s timely book, One Life To Lead, he reminds us of the untapped and brilliant potential within each of our lives. Russell challenges us to clarify what matters most, embrace what we can influence, let go of all we can’t and be far more intentional in designing a life of true success. Read this book. Thank me later!”— John O’Leary, #1 National Bestselling Author of On Fire and In Awe

“A successful life and career, I believe, require both an external and inner journey. In this book Russell shares his novel approach to designing both trips. The hard-earned insights captured in his five steps, reflect the humility it took to really get to know himself and the courage required to translate his potential into action.” — Harry Strachan, Former Professor, Harvard Business School and Director Emeritus, Bain & Co.

“Russell Benaroya has done the impossible here. He lays out a specific plan for how to design the life you want to live, the life you deserve to live, covering work, family, and relationships with a simple-to-understand, comprehensive framework. He doesn’t try to convince you by talking from on high, but rather by exposing his deepest vulnerabilities and sharing how not getting it right led to understanding and insight. Everyone can learn something important from this book, and I am going to start recommending it to people I care about tomorrow.” — Greg Gottesman, Co-founder and Managing Director, Pioneer Square Labs

"With One Life to Lead, Russell Benaroya helps us sidestep the oppressive and useless expectations many of us waste decades trying to exceed, toward a path of curiosity, joy, humility and purpose.
