Ascend is an innovative book embedded with powerful tools for leaders and offers an engaging way to share the path toward personal transformation with everyone. It presents a captivating allegory that helps leaders identify and break through long-standing beliefs that limit access to their innate potential for human happiness and exponential business success. Through the experiences of the characters in Ascend, readers see how their own limiting beliefs and mental models tacitly impede their quest for personal mastery and accomplishment, both personally and professionally. As the characters take important steps to discover and liberate their truer selves, readers face the same key decision: Am I willing to engage in a life-altering journey to grow cognitively, behaviorally, emotionally, and spiritually? The answer promises to be transformational and profound.
