Praise for Leadership Therapy

"Leadership development is self-development, and the mastery of the art of leadership comes from mastery of the self. Leadership Therapy is a perfect book to consult on your journey to mastery. Anna Rowley brings to this work an impressive background of rigorous research in human performance combined with the applied experience of an executive coach to one of the world’s most extraordinary companies. I encourage you to take advantage of this unique practical and uplifting resource in discovering who you are as a leader."--Jim Kouzes, bestselling author of The Leadership Challenge and A Leader’s Legacy

"I believe strongly that psychology plays an enormous role in business in addition to all other human affairs. Anna Rowley's Leadership Therapy is a strong, clear, and helpful guide on how it can be used in business."--Michael Levine, bestselling author of Broken Windows, Broken Business: How the Smallest Remedies Reap the Biggest Rewards
