About the Book

Leadership means having a backbone, and there’s nothing better to illustrate its detailed framework than the actual vertebrae of the human spine. David P. Bugay, PhD, also known as “Doc D,” drives that simple concept home in this guidebook that will help leaders and everyday people make tough decisions. The author draws on many of his own experiences to share coaching suggestions—and his words are so clear and concise that you’ll be able to engage in the behavior he suggests. Learn how to: · improve the way you show up to the world every day; · develop strength, power, integrity, and compassion; and · harness natural strengths in making decisions. Our workplace has radically changed in recent decades, and concerns about employee engagement, productivity, and well-being has placed a premium on selecting and developing leaders. Be the leader you’ve always wanted to be by learning the lessons in Backbonology.
