Life Eyes – The Gateway to who you really could be

Life Eyes - Des Penny

In his book ‘Life Eyes: The Gateway to Who You Really Could Be’, Des Penny shares a practical and powerful way to see and work with the people around us, and our experience of everyday challenges. The practice of living with ‘Life Eyes’ involves seeing beyond the obvious to discover what is really happening.

As the Optimistic Disturber and an award winning Australian leader, Des Penny shares his thoughts on leading and living with insight. Through developing a greater level of insight we can improve our decision-making, our outlook on life and also our relationships.

When you are reading this book, enjoy the fun stories and the powerful messages but also look past the obvious and see what you can discover for yourself through each of the experiences and stories.

As I looked around the table at the five highly-intelligent men with whom I had worked for the past five years, it dawned on me that I did not like them, I did not respect them and I certainly did not want to become like them.
