Finally a business book that offers pragmatic, thought provoking and insightful tools and methodologies that address the required skills and behaviours of a successful leader. All will benefit from reading this book and applying the skills, whether a new manager embarking on the leadership journey or an experienced manager who wants to reconnect with their team.

Rebecca Sharp, Learning & Development Manager Australia & New Zealand, Merlin Entertainments PLC

While this book focusses on the role of the manager, this knowledge is heavily relevant to everyone looking for personal growth and development and in particular for those wishing to build and retain great quality relationships in any part of their life. A great reference tool for all.

Peter Lumsdaine, Chief Executive Officer O'Brien Group

Anna-Lucia is the first and last person I would go to for advice, coaching and organizational training on EI. I have worked with her for 14 years and in that time I have seen her tools and coaching enable good leaders to become great and strong leaders to become highly effective. Most of all I've seen leaders get really connected with what it takes to be Emotionally Intelligent. Now, all of this brilliant thinking is in The Four Mindsets.

Nikola Milivojevic, Chief Executive Officer & President Beauti control, Tupperware Brands Corporation USA

As the business world of today keeps evolving and changing, so do requirements for those who want to be game changes in the business arena. Anna Lucia’s book summarizes key traits needed to be relevant today as a manager, leader, and most importantly influencer. The Four Mindsets is definitely one of the best books I have read this year on people management as it focuses on leadership traits so often overlooked. They are the ones that create the safe and open ended environment so many people today are looking for when they choose which organisation they want to be a part of.
