Business innovator, international speaker, master coach and now published author Paul Smilde combines his deep understanding of the ancient wisdom traditions with hands-on business acumen. He now brings “It’s Not about You (published by Balboa Press),” a trailblazing self-help book that redefines leadership in the transformation age.

“Leadership in most organizations today is based on fear and top-down control. As a result, five in six employees worldwide are not engaged at work, one in five millennials experience burn-out, and companies have adopted strategies that exploit the Earth,” the author states. “My book goes to the core of all of our perils, both privately and professionally. In my 25-year business career, I developed the Paradise Shaper method, which is unique in the fact that it offers a holistic transformation path. In this step-by-step guide you will learn how to: 1) Return to your ‘factory settings’ and master your high-tech body; 2) Use your ‘quantum mind’ to attain what you truly aspire; and 3) Free the innate motivation of your team and create stellar results.”

It's Not about You” is a leadership guide with 18 transformation exercises. It introduces readers to the Paradise Shaper Method — a proven three-step path to transform one’s leadership based on ancient wisdom and a deep understanding of the human design. Here, Smilde combines personal examples from his leadership journey as a senior executive and serial business innovator along with examples of sports heroes and performing artists to demonstrate how living according to the principles of human design produces magnificent results.
