Publisher's Summary

Based on his TEDx talk "Everyday Leadership (the Lollipop Moment)" - voted one of the 15 most inspirational TED talks of all time - This Is Day One is leadership expert Drew Dudley's guide to cultivating the behaviors that will help you to succeed and empower those around you.

If you're intimidated by the mystique surrounding leadership, this audiobook is for you. Dudley simplifies leadership without denying its complexity, demonstrating that leadership in all its forms begins at the same clear and accessible place for everyone: what he calls "Day One".

Day One is when you discover, define, and start to consistently deliver on your foundational leadership values. Living that day over and over is what creates leaders, and Dudley provides the key tools necessary to craft and commit to your own personal Day One, including: 

  • A step-by-step process designed to surface your core leadership values and embed them into your daily behavior
  • A road map to behavioral changes proven to increase commitment, pride, productivity, and happiness 
  • Insights into key leadership values that drive performance and impact

Sharing the process that led him through battles with alcohol, obesity, and personal tragedy, Dudley shows you how to develop a relentless commitment to the daily behaviors that will make you a better executive, coach, or teacher and how you can inspire others to do the same. 

Most of the leadership on the planet comes from people who don't see themselves as leaders. This Is Day One shows you how to start changing that. Through the insights of leaders of all types - CEOs, elite athletes, cab drivers, custodians, and everyone in between - Dudley helps you understand what your Day One needs to look like, reminds you why you're a leader, and makes clear what you can do about it - starting today, on Day One. 

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

What the critics say

"If you're looking for a refreshing and new take on leadership, look no further than This Is Day One. It provides the reader with opportunities to implement its systems in everyday situations - from your interactions with a barista at your coffee shop to a meeting with your CEO. Dudley provides the reader with easy-to-understand stories, offering us tools we can adopt immediately. I recommend this book to everyone, from those just starting out their career to those in the C-suite." (Melody Khodaverdian, VP partnerships, Forbes)

"Drew Dudley is one of the greatest leadership experts of our time. If you care about accomplishing your goals and unleashing your fullest potential, this book is written for you. Dudley provides true stories, genuine insights, and clear strategies that will allow you to reach new levels of success and impact. Whether you're a CEO or recent graduate, you'll uncover incredible lessons that could transform your life." (Shane Feldman, CEO, Count Me In)

"I have a problem with most leadership books. They scream from mountaintops. They quote superstars. And the authors play the role of preacher on a pedestal. But Drew Dudley is different. The pedestal has been kicked away. The superstars replaced by everyday people. And what shines through? The magical wisdom of life-changing stories on how we can be better people and live better lives. This isn't a why book. It's a how book. You already know leadership matters. Now here's how to do it." (Neil Pasricha, New York Times best-selling author of The Book of Awesome and The Happiness Equation)

Great book!!!

Took me over 3 weeks to get through as I implemented and tested some of these strategies. I have to say they work. This combined with the 5 second rule by Mel Robbins has changed my performance and mindset of what’s possible to achieve in any given day.

Outstanding

I loved the stories detailed in this book as they helped describe and define a useful, applicable, and attainable approach to leadership.
Getting the audiobook was a perk as it was read by the author Drew Dudley and he’s also an excellent speaker. That said, I also ordered a hard copy today as it was too good to pass up.
I will be using the methods detailed in this book to help formulate my daily practices, and I’ve already bought a copy (the first of many, I’m sure) for a friend.

Awesome Book

I started listening to it and found myself unable to "put it down" as they say. This book has had a huge impact on the way I am going to deal with my day to day personal and business activities. Very impactful. I will be listening to this book over and over again. To many nuggets to absorb after a single listen. I can't wait to meet Drew next year at the LevelUp Impact Conference next year on September 27th, 2019. Get this book. Jeffrey (Jeff) C. Marr, Heart Health Coach/Keynote Speaker

Best in Leadership

This book is great. Often Leadership books are dry, heavy with theory, heavy with tools to follow. Drew Dudley's voice captivates readers and he shares the content in a way that makes you feel empowered to do something more. If you haven't listened to his TED x talk Lollipop Moment go now!

Great insights on leadership and life.<br />

So glad that there is finally a book full of lollipop moments and sensible leadership training for those of us with no aspiration to be a CEO. I'm an artist, still working for someone else while I prepare for the leap to self-employment. This gives me a framework to hit my own "go button" while I make that journey.

Eh.

Good point on working like day one every day, but not sure it’s realistic. Way too long of a book for a simple idea. But overall its okay.

Enjoyed the lessons!

Drew's book was shared with me by a friend of mine in Canada. She heard Drew speak at a conference and knew I would enjoy the book. She was right! Thanks, Nancy!

I have already shared the book with several friends and plan to give a few copies to friends for Christmas.
