Life is about adding value. Success in life requires making good value judgments by knowing which choices and actions will create the greatest possible net value. This book is about learning how to consistently and accurately answer "The Central Question" of life, love, and leadership--

"What choice can I make and action can I take,
in this moment, to create the greatest net value?"


The better you can answer this question, the more value you can create and the greater success and happiness you can have. Chances are, there is nothing wrong with you. You are not broken or in need of repair. Your "weaknesses" do not need fixing. Everything you need to generate greater success and happiness is already right between your ears. All you need are the keys to unlock and liberate the natural strengths and wisdom you already have.

Peter and Harvey present a fresh and powerful new science-based paradigm for personal, leadership, and organizational development. Taking you on a journey that ranges from profound to practical and from educational to enlightening, this book sheds new light on the ancient quest to unleash greater human potential. Whether you are an individual looking to improve your own success in life or a leader seeking to take your entire organization to new levels of performance, Answering The Central Question may well hold the keys to your future.
Includes a free "VQ Profile Assessment"
