for effective work, meaningful living and a better world

Author: Martin Thoolen (©2022)

Do you want to work more effectively? Or live a more meaningful life? Or contribute to a better world? Or all of the above? You can do that. Every day. How? With Spirited Personal Leadership.

This book is intended for anyone who, in their private or work life, wants to:

  • work more effectively;
  • develop their talents further;
  • have a healthy work/life balance;
  • increase the amount of control they have in their own life and work;
  • experience more pleasure, passion, meaning and vitality;
  • feel more inner peace and quiet;
  • to contribute to better relationships - privately as well as in business;
  • make a meaningful contribution to a better world.

Regardless of whether you are a leader, lawmaker, entrepreneur, manager, professional, associate, student, parent, family member, teenager or an adult.

What to expect?
This book will take you straight to the source of all your choices and behaviors. It will give you accessible insights, inspiring examples and exercises that you’ll be able to apply immediately, and see results of quickly. You will gain insight into the three forces that determine each and every one of your choices, behaviors and personal leadership: ego, soul and consciousness (spirit).

The following questions will be answered: What is ego anyway? Should you jettison your ego? What are the benefits of ego, and what are its pitfalls? Or, what is the soul? Is there a reason for our existence? What are the five existential tasks the soul has to tackle? What are the pros and cons of working and living from inspiration? And, what is spirit or consciousness? How can you utilize it more to have smoother relationships in private and at work and to create more peace for yourself and others around you? In the last section of the book you will see how you can make a real contribution towards a better world.

At the beginning of 2023 the book 'Spirited Personal Leadership' with more than 300 pages of inspiration will appear. Are you interested to order one? Then send me an email to
