Books To Help You Amplify Your Leadership Impact
BOOKS WRITTEN BY DR. KAREN MORLEY
In her latest book released in January 2022, Dr Karen Morley tackles the prevalence of overwork, explains what it does to our health and wellbeing, and provides a blueprint for reducing it and increasing enjoyment and success.
The pandemic upended our lives and how we work. While there is a silver lining in amongst the changes, for many high achievers, the demands have increased, burnout has blown-out, and flexible working has become harder than ever.
FlexAbility is a personal reset for high performing leaders who want to beat burnout and find greater freedom in their work and lives. It helps you focus on why and how you work. To know, do and influence what matters most.
“FlexAbility couldn’t be more timely. As we rebuild our lives following the intense disruption of the past two years, FlexAbility offers a ‘go to’ blueprint to help us all reset for the next decade and beyond.”
Diana Vernon, Principal, Methodist Ladies College, Melbourne
