Maximize your influence by turning down the noise.

While many leaders have learned to tune out distractions that keep them from being productive, they remain deaf to their inner desires and emotions. In How to Lead in a World of Distraction, Clay Scroggins teaches leaders four simple habits that create space for emotional evaluation and exploration. These helpful practices will empower leaders to replace the chaos of their busy days with emotional competence and awareness that leads to a calmer, more fulfilling life.

You'll learn how to incorporate four noise-cancelling habits into your daily life - finding simplicity, speaking to yourself, getting quiet, and pressing pause - that will make you mindful and aware of the vital inner desires that need your attention. Transforming the toxic cocktail of emotional distraction starts with emotional awareness - being able to identify and understand your emotions - which ultimately leads to emotional healing and transformed leadership. And it all starts here.

How to Lead in a World of Distraction:

  • Teaches leaders four simple habits that create space for emotional evaluation and exploration
  • Empowers leaders to replace the emotional chaos in their increasingly busy days with an emotional awareness that will lead to a calmer, more fulfilling life
  • Encourages leaders to fully embrace tangible steps each day until emotional distractions - the numbing nature of entertainment and social media and the urgency of the daily grind - are permanently replaced by calm, effective, and gratifying leadership

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Turn Down for WHAT?!?

This book was actually very different than I expected. I thought this would be about leading folks who were easily distracted. Not so much. Instead Clay focuses on how leaders need to turn down the white noise in their own lives in order to lead more effectively. Pretty sure this will be a re-read in the near future. I had the pleasure of listening to the audio book. Clay actually reads this one himself. This is easily THE BEST performance of an audio book I’ve ever heard.

Brilliant

Loved everything about this book especially the bit about surrendering. Funny too. I want to start to secure the sabbath as my me day and trust God will work it all out for my good.
Cheers Clay!

🔥wow🔥

The title seems straightforward. It’s not. Clay dissects this and contextualizes it for us. Clear application and authentic examples throughout. I walk away knowing I need to change and I thought I had this mastered. Chapter 9 is going on repeat for me in this next season.
