The exasperating truth is that most advice offered to business leaders is complete nonsense.
In Your Oxygen Mask First, Kevin Lawrence cuts through the pretence to deliver the best information and tools he has discovered in two decades of coaching CEOs and executive teams. This pragmatic, straight-talking book delivers the 17 habits every high-achiever must adopt to survive and thrive in business and life.
Obsessed with understanding why great people crash and burn, Kevin has studied and tested most every leadership theory known to humankind.

Before writing Your Oxygen Mask First, Kevin Lawrence was a key contributor to Scaling Up (Rockefeller Habits 2.0), working extensively with Verne Harnish, on this highly regarded follow up.
Lawrence interviewed 50 successful CEOs of high growth firms, around the world, to gain insights about how the tools form the original Rockefeller Habits book helped them to grow their business in different economies, industries and circumstances.
Scaling Up focuses on the four major decision areas every company must get right: People, Strategy, Execution, and Cash – and includes a series of one-page tools (including the updated One-Page Strategic Plan and the Rockefeller Habits Checklist™), which more than 40,000 firms around the globe have used to scale their companies successfully – many to $1 billion and beyond.
