LEADERSHIP IS A CHOICE
Choosing the Two Transformational Attitudes of Leadership in Your Everyday Life
Publishing this book has been a lifelong dream of mine. When I left my PhD studies in 1993 to pursue a more spiritual quest, I committed to eventually producing an intellectually solid and accessible reflection on leadership which would combine the wisdom of management, psychology, philosophy and spirituality.
Thirty years later, I offer you Leadership Is a Choice, a practical guide to developing your own individual leadership and that of any collective project in which you participate.
I hope you enjoy it,

THE YIN AND YANG OF LEADERSHIP
A theoretical and practical guide to democratic leading
Based on his extensive research and experience as an international consultant and manager, François presents a new and accessible leadership model where each person and group can develop their own Intentional (yang) and Appreciative (yin) leadership. Practical examples and easy-to-use strategies are also presented.
In my opinion, Heon’s work and book are very current and even avant-garde. They offer excellent opportunities for leadership development today.
Laurent Chartier, Pioneer of management consulting in Quebec
Kitchens are often chaotic, fast-paced work environments that can’t function without proper systems and clear goals. Heon’s book speaks to the interpersonal or group problems frequently encountered in such a setting, and his comprehensive bidimensional approach makes understanding the balance required to manage these environments easy.
