As influencers, H.A.B.I.T.S: The Art of Influence, reminds us that leadership is a selfless act that consists of constant self-evaluations, and most importantly, taking the role of leadership seriously.”
Michelle Carter 3-time Olympian and 2016 Gold Medalist

"Leadership is more art than science, which means people who wish to or do influence others must have a nimbleness of mind, character toward growth, and a sharp set of skills to engage in a dance toward goals and mission. H.A.B.I.T.S has a trove of real-world wisdom that focuses on the realities of personal leadership, and life which are at the core of honest and successful leadership and influence. Readers will gain much wisdom, the practical "stuff" that is important to self-leadership and in influencing others."
