If you prefer reading

The Personal Business Plan universe comprises two books about leadership and personal development. They both explain the concept and methodology of The Personal Business Plan system, and they are both very popular.

The Personal Business Plan – A blueprint for running your life is quite academic in its approach, whereas Your Next Career – A headhunter’s guide to lifelong success is lighter in its form.

About the Books

The Personal Business Plan - A Blueprint for running your life

Stephen Bruyant-Langer’s bestselling book "The Personal Business Plan - A blueprint for running your life" is about addressing the realities of change at all levels every day in your life, so you can achieve the success you want. The Personal Business Plan provides a structure for life long self-management and carves out your route to success.  You are in charge and you are the sole responsible! The important message is: “I need to change”.  And you are not alone.  We all need to change in order to succeed in life.  Stephen calls it Serial Mastery: When you’ve become excellent at something, then it’s time to reinvent yourself.

Your Next Career - A headhunter's guide to lifelong success (Danish language)

Danish speakers should also check out Stephen's first book "Your Next Career - A headhunter's guide to lifelong success".  It deals with similar subjects and is a very successful leadership book in Denmark.
