Your life is too important to leave your growth to chance.

Host of the How Leaders Lead podcast, NYT best-selling author & Co-Founder and Former CEO of Yum! Brands, David Novak, teams up with Jason Goldsmith, globally recognized Sports Performance Coach to some of the world’s best athletes, to bring you a groundbreaking new concept in leadership development: self-coaching.


This book from two of the most important coaches of our time will teach you everything not only about peak performance but also peak living. Read it carefully and follow the advice to be in flow.
Deepak Chopra, M.D.
Throughout my football career, I’ve benefited from many coaches surrounding me. However, off the field I’ve often had to teach myself different ways to lead and work. David and Jason’s book taught me a framework to coach myself on my own personal growth and development journey.
Larry Fitzgerald - NFL Wide Receiver
David Novak has done it again! David and Jason have partnered to share key lessons learned that will benefit all of their readers. “Take Charge of You” provides a simple and practical path for continued personal development.
Brian Cornell - CEO of Target
In a time of distraction and comparison, it’s more critical than ever to commit to the art of self-coaching. More than just to inform or teach, this book empowers you with the resources you need to go beyond and build the life you’re meant to live, so that you can give your best to the world. Consider this your cheat sheet on how to shine your brightest in both your personal and professional lives.
Kendra Scott - Founder of Kendra Scott Jewelry
David Novak and Jason Goldsmith have spent years studying, living and mastering the art and science of coaching and personal success. For anyone who’s ever felt stuck in a career or life path, this supremely practical and evidence-based book will take you from dreaming to doing. This is the book we need today, packed with evidence-based and practical strategies for creating the life and career you want.
Margaret Duffy, PhD - Professor of Strategic Communication, U. of Missouri
Most of the success I've had in my career I owe to a lifelong of learning from people who have taught me so many invaluable lessons. But I also have no doubt that mental toughness and knowing how to coach myself has become critical to my personal and professional growth over the past 20 years and this book will teach you how to do just that in your life. Good Luck on your journey.
Tom Brady - 7 Time Super Bowl Champ

Feeling stuck in your life or career?

It's time to grow yourself!


Give yourself what you need to succeed
Feeling stuck in your career or in your life? Not sure if you’re on the right track or where to go next?

It can be hard to get there alone. In fact, everyone could use a good coach to help them reach their full potential. Unfortunately, there just aren’t enough good ones to go around, and the ones that exist are often too expensive or sought-after for most of us to even consider hiring them.
