This work is an effective self-improvement guide that links the processes of personal development, leadership, and management of team dynamics. The theories presented concerning the brain-mind connection, the North Star, and the Compass Rose are insightful while practical; and the use of the Learning Connections Inventory, Insights pages, and various tables draw the reader into directly applying those insights.
I have applied multiple frameworks that increased self-awareness of personal values and thought processes. I have always found these to be useful, increasing consciousness, while helping you navigate life's challenges. The unique value of this body of work is making the connection between the process of your personal development and how that process, and your relationship to it, affects your leadership process as well.
As a result of reading and learning from this book I now understand my learning process and its directional forces. This helped me to make sense of why I have needed certain environmental attributes in place to learn effectively and address new challenges, while shying away from other attributes. I will be a more effective learner as a result of this book.
