About the author:
NEIL BIERBAUM has been a life and executive coach since 2005 and has practised and taught meditation for more than 20 years. He has worked with corporates, SMEs, entrepreneurs and private clients—supporting them to manage the enormous stress and increasing complexity in their lives and to make sure they achieve their full potential as human beings in an uncertain world.

Here’s an excerpt from the Preface:
THE JOURNEY to write this book began some thirty-odd years ago, when I told my father, after a year of articles, that I did not want to become an accountant, but a writer. I had a burning hunger to understand life and to write about it.

It took a few spectacular coincidences—or blessings from above—for me to find a steady path and enjoy a successful career as a journalist and, ultimately, a magazine editor. Still, I wanted to go deeper. I wanted to understand life, properly. During that time, a magazine crossed my desk with a feature on men who called themselves coaches and did this thing of sharing wisdom with others. I had never thought to do that, but when I saw the possibility, I was on board.

Every day of my journey as a coach, everything I’ve seen and learned, I’ve treated as research. I’ve added it to the pile of knowledge and wisdom that I’ve gained—not only through practising coaching, but also living it, trying it, testing it and seeing what works to improve your personal effectiveness. I’ll unpack that term properly in this book, but for now you can take it to mean successfully managing yourself through the vicissitudes of life. Knowing what’s going on and knowing that you know what you’re doing. Being able to manage yourself in any situation. Being the best person you can be, both in life and in business.

Every day, I’ve wanted to take that knowledge and wisdom and share it by writing—one form of which would be an effective self-help book, one that I would have wanted to read, one that would have made a difference for me. I’ve held the belief that if I approach it in this way, it will be effective for others. So, after many years and many attempts, this is my offering.
