Publisher's Summary

People functioning at the highest level are what the authors call 10x leaders. Research on these leaders consistently brought up five major strengths. This book teaches readers to become a 10x leader using these five key areas, the SHARP framework. 

Strengths: 10x leaders stop trying to eliminate weaknesses and learn to focus on their strengths

Health: 10x leaders stop trying to eliminate stress and learn how to integrate periods of restoration 

Absorption: 10x leaders stop waiting for the lightning of focus and creativity to strike and learn how to achieve consistent engagement and presence 

Relationships: 10x leaders stop trying to exert power and control and learn to cultivate healthy relationships through positivity and authenticity 

Purpose: 10x leaders stop grinding out tasks and learn how to find meaning and commitment in everything they do 

The 10x elixir of peak performance comes not from focusing on just one of these areas but from learning to light the fire of all five aspects of SHARP and functioning naturally with them on a daily basis. If you just cultivate one or two aspects of leadership skills, you are unlikely to succeed.

More than inspiring

Many books, especially leadership books are inspiring. This one goes a step further and gives you both the tools and the motivation needed to act and become "the sum total of who you are".
