Based on his TEDx talk "Everyday Leadership (the Lollipop Moment)" - voted one of the 15 most inspirational TED talks of all time - This Is Day One is leadership expert Drew Dudley's guide to cultivating the behaviors that will help you to succeed and empower those around you.
If you're intimidated by the mystique surrounding leadership, this audiobook is for you. Dudley simplifies leadership without denying its complexity, demonstrating that leadership in all its forms begins at the same clear and accessible place for everyone: what he calls "Day One".
Day One is when you discover, define, and start to consistently deliver on your foundational leadership values. Living that day over and over is what creates leaders, and Dudley provides the key tools necessary to craft and commit to your own personal Day One, including:
- A step-by-step process designed to surface your core leadership values and embed them into your daily behavior
- A road map to behavioral changes proven to increase commitment, pride, productivity, and happiness
- Insights into key leadership values that drive performance and impact
Sharing the process that led him through battles with alcohol, obesity, and personal tragedy, Dudley shows you how to develop a relentless commitment to the daily behaviors that will make you a better executive, coach, or teacher and how you can inspire others to do the same.
Most of the leadership on the planet comes from people who don't see themselves as leaders. This Is Day One shows you how to start changing that. Through the insights of leaders of all types - CEOs, elite athletes, cab drivers, custodians, and everyone in between - Dudley helps you understand what your Day One needs to look like, reminds you why you're a leader, and makes clear what you can do about it - starting today, on Day One.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

The pedestal has been kicked away. The superstars replaced by everyday people. And what shines through? The magical wisdom of life-changing stories on how we can be better people and live better lives. This isn't a why book. It's a how book. You already know leadership matters.
