Following the teachings of Alfred Adler, readers learn, in this book, how not to be deceived by our rhetoric, but instead, watch our feet.
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) April 08, 2015
In a career that has spanned decades working with CEOs, Boards and top management in major corporations, Allan Cox has helped them develop the insights that are vital to succeeding in top jobs.
With “THE CEO IN YOU,” Cox has taken the central concept of Alfred Adler – the pioneer-founder of Individual Psychology – and utilizes Adler’s groundbreaking concept on the Style-of-Life to create a business model that is totally appropriate and insightful for today’s business environment. It works for executives on all rungs of the corporate ladder and all across their personal lives.
Without jargon, Allan adapts Adler’s psychological sophistication to help readers understand and tap into the top executive in them. “THE CEO IN YOU” offers insights into the application of Adler’s seminal work and presents chapter exercises that help readers uncover their hidden goals, face their fears and summon their true strengths.
Adler, along with Freud and Jung comprised the “Holy Trinity” of Modern Psychology. The concepts ‘inferiority complex,” “birth order” are just two of the many insights from Adler.
The workplace is enormously more complex today. In Allan’s revised edition, readers will use the concept of grounding to help them become more aware of their unique talents, harness those talents that are unique to their destiny and in the end, achieve extraordinary results. This is a book that can help readers discover true purpose… a thread-line for their life and work.
This book is about Self Discovery. In this hands-on guide, readers are asked to drill deep inside themselves to garner major eye-opening insights. They will see themselves revealed in the numerous business profiles, case histories and a wealth of stories that Cox presents to illustrate his concepts. Throughout the book, Allan is a strong believer that professional, personal and spiritual aspects of life cannot be separated. But they can be excavated.
A confident fresh self-awareness is what propels readers through tough situations and leadership options. Allan’s book asks probing questions such as “Who Are You At Your Best?” “What Choices Have Led You Astray?” “What Wakes You Up at 2 AM Worrying? “What Strengths Have You Kept Under Wraps…..and “What Keeps You From Acting on Them?” “ What Will Open the Door to Achievement for You?”
“In our hyper-connected lives, the noise is deafening and the signals faint,” states Annalie Killian, Director of Innovation, Collaboration and Communication for AMP Financial Services in Sydney, Australia. “Being crystal clear on one’s purpose is now more important than ever to avoid the constant steam of distractions. I can see Allan’s book becoming the life companion of the leaders of the future who will use its practical frameworks, metaphors and examples to navigate information overload and stay focused on the real goals. It’s worked for me, and I have recommended it to everyone I mentor.”

Cox notes, “Following the teachings of Alfred Adler, readers learn, in this book, how not to be deceived by our rhetoric, but instead, watch our feet. We take the time to see clearly where our steps have taken us. In measures of work, love and friendship, we each re-translate our movement through life by memory and probing. We capture our life’s trajectory in as few words as possible. Then, alone, we answer if we respect our life trajectory or need to reclaim in ourselves what we have neglected that awaits its return.”
