The power of being yourself


The power of being yourself
A widely admired leader in the insurance industry, Joe Plumeri was named one of the "100 Most Influential People in Finance” in 2009 and 2010 by Treasury & Risk magazine’s list.  He was also recognised by St. John’s University School of Risk Management as Insurance Leader of the Year in 2006. He is a man known by his contagious optimism and authenticity, the ability of his inspirational speeches to move thousands and a talent for transforming the way companies think and operate.

In the book, Plumeri, the former boss of Willis Group and Citibank North America, talks about his experience in the business world – both the good and the bad – and offers his insight on how to stay positive, motivate yourself and others around you, and striving for success in your personal and professional life.

In Joe Plumeri’s own words, this is not a business or leadership book, it’s a people book. This is a story about finding your passion, following your heart and, most of all, learning how to be yourself.

According to the author, we are living in a world ruled by technology where people seem to have forgotten how to relate to each other, preferring to hide behind the anonymity of their computers. He defends the importance of human connection and the need for people to engage more.

The Power of Being Yourself features eight key principles, providing insight into behaviors and motivations that can help everyone get further in their life. The author believes that the secret to success is found not in boardroom strategy or corporate philosophy, but rather in allowing passion, purpose and true emotions into your life. This is reflected in his life motto that everyone should live in the moment and be honest and true in our emotions.
