How great leaders become MORE to Impact, Inspire, Transcend and deliver Results with Confidence

GREAT TO MAGNUS presents the practical exploration & application of scientific theories, systematic principles, best practices, insightful models, original formulas, and a step-by-step inter & intra-neurobiological roadmap to deliver results with confidence.

Students & practitioners of leadership and empowering management who have followed the contributions of Jim Collins’ bestselling book, Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap… and Others Don’t, recognize that being a GREAT LEADER is a complex, multi-dimensional process and remains an integral component of a highly rewarding journey.  But the enduring question remains – what happens to leaders when they personify greatness at, and through, what they do? Have they, in fact, completed their leadership journey? Or is it possible to push the envelope of personal and professional expectations, to raise the bar, and realize more as an authentic leader?

This book suggests a timely argument, via a comprehensive and experiential approach, that there is a next level for GREAT leaders. The new frontier is to embody MAGNUS – an expectation arising from a “New Normal” within a society overwhelmed by emerging volatility, complexity, uncertainty & ambiguity (VUCA), while necessitating enhanced capacities in the dimensions of performance, leadership, resiliency, well-being, and antifragility.

Cowritten by internationally accomplished and recognized social scientists, authors, and successful practitioners, Dr. Mitch Javidi, Mark A. Garcia, Dr. Anthony H. Normore and Mitch Boudrot, this present work expands upon the Expectancy Theory of Leadership by providing a powerful theory of human behavior identified as MAGNUS OVEA. Our collaborative approach utilizes a series of interlinking interpersonal and intrapersonal neurobiological capacities designed to turbocharge performance and the actualization of desired outcomes. Additionally, GREAT TO MAGNUS includes innovative self-assessments, complemented by digital platforms (Android and iOS), developed to measure psychological, emotional, and biological key performance indicators, crucial in successfully navigating the journey from GREAT TO MAGNUS.
