The Disciplined Leader: Keeping the Focus on What Really Matters 

What do the best leaders have in common? As president of MAP, John Manning should know. MAP has helped tens of thousands of top executives accelerate their leadership and management performance. Manning says the answer is one word: discipline. But for Manning, discipline has a very specific meaning.

All leaders have scores of things they could do. But a disciplined leader is one who identifies and focuses on the Vital Few: the 20 percent of activities that will drive 80 percent of the results. And the results that are most important are those tied to the organization’s most precious asset: its people.

The Disciplined Leader offers fifty-two succinct lessons to help you home in on your own Vital Few in three critical areas: leading yourself, leading your team, and leading your organization. Each lesson comes with recommended tactics and practical “Take Action!” tips for implementing it, so there are literally hundreds of pieces of must-know, time-tested advice here. The chapters are self-contained, so you can read them in any order and come back to the ones that resonate with you—your own Vital Few! This is a hands-on, nuts-and-bolts guide to leadership practice that’s built to inspire action, drive change, and achieve results.

The Sitting Disease: Restore Your Posture and Eliminate Body Pain in 10 Minutes a Day

Is pain forcing you to put your life on pause? Are you holding back on major life goals or adventures or hobbies because you’re always in pain? If you spend most of your day sitting, you’re likely suffering from back pain, neck pain, chronic body pain, obesity, heart disease, even depression.

You wonder what it would feel like to truly be pain-free. You’ve tried exercises, stretches, massages, chiropractors, pain pills, and everything in between, but you don’t know how the pain will ever go away, if you’re sitting at your desk working all day.

The Sitting Disease is a science-backed, simple, action-oriented system for sustainable pain relief. In this book, you’ll learn how to:

  1. Eliminate pain and prevent injury with a 10-Minute Body Maintenance System

  2. Design your workstation to correct physical imbalances and restore healthy posture

  3. Accelerate your productivity while working (hint: sitting all day slows down your brain, too!)

  4. Get your work day finished efficiently, use the rest of your time for adventures, and sustain an active, pain-free lifestyle

Whether you’re an entrepreneur, a 9-to-5-er, or the product of a sedentary life (ahem, Netflix), this book will show you remarkably simple and effective techniques to get the most out of your body, so you can really live.
