Former Federal Agent in Charge
Reveals Insider Secrets
Leadership expert Andrew D. Wittman, PhD and author of Ground Zero Leadership: CEO of You reveals insider secrets about stress control and conflict management that even the highest levels of leadership don’t know.
In his thought-provoking new book Ground Zero Leadership: CEO of You Wittman explains that the key to managing stress and conflict is to keep fear from hijacking your brain. Fear, anger, anxiety, and worry all stem from a perceived lack of control. Ground Zero Leadership teaches you the mental toughness skills you need to take back control.
“Leadership excellence begins with oneself—at Ground Zero—where it is critical to have complete control over your mind, body and emotions under pressure,” Wittman explains.
Wittman draws from his years of experience as a United States Marine Corps infantry combat veteran and a former police officer and federal agent. He was the Special Agent in Charge of Nancy Pelosi’s security detail, and Joe Lieberman’s lead advance agent, and he has personally protected Hillary Clinton,heads of state, Fortune 20 CEOs and Sir Elton John.
As a speaker, trainer, and consultant on leadership and mental toughness for corporations worldwide, Wittman challenges his audience to ask better questions in the face of difficulty—how would I do it?
