From internationally bestselling author and retired FBI agent Joe Navarro, a groundbreaking look at leadership and how to differentiate yourself by mastering the five powerful principles exceptional individuals live by.
Bestselling author and globally renowned behavior expert and business consultant Joe Navarro reveals for the first time the five unequaled qualities that set exceptional individuals and great leaders apart, and how you can use these principles to stand out and distinguish yourself.
Through commitment to self-mastery in the things we do each day (“to lead others, you must first demonstrate that you can lead yourself”); keen observational skills using techniques Joe used in the FBI to decode people and situations with laser-like precision; proven verbal and nonverbal communication skills that persuade and inspire; and action that builds shared purpose and leads by example, we arrive at the most necessary ingredient of all for interpersonal and business relations: “whoever provides psychological comfort wins.”
How to Be Exceptional culminates Joe’s more than four decades of work analyzing human behavior, including a quarter of a century in counterespionage and high-stakes behavioral assessment, conducting over 10,000 interviews, and advising major corporations on best practices.
Including case studies from business and history, compelling stories from Joe’s life and career, and cutting-edge science, How to Be Exceptional empowers you to change how you see yourself, influence how others see you, and prepare, should the opportunity arise, to be not just ready to lead, but worthy to lead.
