Description - Leading the Life You Want by Stewart D. Friedman

#7 on THE WALL STREET JOURNAL Bestseller List

Must professional accomplishments come at the expense of having a full life? Not according to Wharton professor and leadership and work-life expert Stewart D. Friedman. In his new book, Friedman identifies critical skills for leading an authentic and balanced life, and illustrates them through the compelling stories of six remarkable high-profile people. He also shows how to develop and apply each skill through a series of exercises anyone can use. Each leader showcased in the book-Bruce Springsteen, Michelle Obama, Sheryl Sandberg, Tom Tierney, Eric Greitens, and Julie Foudy-exemplifies a specific set of skills for achieving greater harmony between work and life. Friedman identifies these discrete skills-for being real, being whole, and being innovative-that reduce conflict.

Author Biography - Stewart D. Friedman

Since 1984 Stew Friedman has been teaching at Wharton, where he is the Practice Professor of Management. In 1991 he founded both the Wharton Leadership Program--initiating the required MBA and Undergraduate leadership courses--and the Wharton Work/Life Integration Project. Stew served in the mental health field before earning his PhD in organizational psychology from the University of Michigan. In 2001 he concluded a two-year assignment (while on leave from Wharton) at Ford, as the senior executive for leadership development. Stew is the author of Baby Bust: New Choices for Men and Women in Work and Family (Wharton Digital, 2008) and Total Leadership: Be a Better Leader, Have a Richer Life (Harvard Business Review Press, 2014). The Total Leadership program is used worldwide, including by the 57,000+ students in Stew's recent Coursera MOOC. He advises many organizations, gives high-energy keynotes, and is an award-winning teacher. The New York Times cited the "rock star adoration" he inspires in students. He was chosen by Working Mother as one of America's twenty-five most influential men to have made things better for working parents, and by Thinkers50 as one of the "world's top fifty business thinkers." The Families and Work Institute honored him with a Work Life Legacy Award.
