Dr. Greenberg's inspiring story is a catalyst for understanding inner strength and leadership potential. He has not only overcome incredible challenges with amazing positivity and drive, but he's also been able to help countless others create their own definitions of success. The book was authored by Patrick Sweeney, a New York Times bestselling author and speaker who has engaged audiences around the world on how to recognize and develop their true potential. Sweeney also previously served as President of Caliper. This is the third time the pair has collaborated on a book, including their New York Times best-selling "Succeed on Your Own Terms."
"By uniquely combining an entrepreneur's inspiring personal story with practical ideas and insights, this book will help you become the leader you were meant to be. It will help you consider what you might not be seeing – so that you can look more clearly inside yourself and see new possibilities around you," explained Sweeney.
The book and life-changing guide shows readers how to question their habits, preconceptions, and strategies for connecting with people in order to identify personal leadership strengths and optimize them for career growth. While following Herb's firsthand account of losing his sight and gaining a new perspective, the book tells an inspiring personal story of setbacks and triumphs and important lessons learned along the way, which can be related to a number of situations to help people unleash their potential and become more influential team players.
Also included in the book are 18 principles of extraordinary leadership, accessible explanations of the psychological underpinnings that motivate us, attract people, drive people to take risks, and challenge the status quo, as well as thought-provoking discussions and focus questions that fortify leadership presence.
This fun, aspirational book tells the story of Dr. Greenberg giving back while beating the odds. "What You Aren't Seeing" is available June 19, 2015 on Amazon and in bookstores nationwide.
