Leading by example
Everyone has the potential to change their lives for the better, and in doing so, change the world around them. That’s the message delivered in a new book by Auckland cosmetic laser dentist Dr Hisham Abdalla, who has become equally renowned in recent years as an entrepreneur, educator and personal leader. Dr Hisham, CEO and founder of the Laser LifeCARE Institute, a groundbreaking dental spa and teaching facility in Auckland, says his own success is testament to his vision. This is detailed in his new book 4D Leadership, which will be launched on Tuesday, 20 November. Dream, Desire, Do, Determination – 4D Leadership spells out a recipe for personal success. With a formula that clearly explains how and why do those who achieve in life actually do it, so more people can achieve more. Dr Hisham says the book was inspired by a desire to pass on the principles that have guided and defined his own life, and helped him develop as a leader. “Leaders have a long-term vision of what could be,” he says. “They make things happen. Followers dwell on the past and the present, and are focused on what is happening to them.” The book also offers guidelines to encourage participation and avoid procrastination, which the author says is the leading killer of dreams. “Doing things randomly, without purpose and intent, is like driving your car around your whole life without a destination, until you run out of gas in the middle of nowhere. Then people wonder at the end of their lives why they ended up getting nowhere.” 4D Leadership has already caught the attention of one of the world’s most renowned motivational experts, Bob Proctor. “Dr Hisham’s 4D principles help you to perceive that you are the leader of your own life, and the sooner you take charge, the sooner you will be experiencing the extraordinary life you were meant to live,” he says. Dr Hisham’s holistic approach to living is reflected in his other business interests. Laser LifeCARE Institute defies predetermined conventions about the way a dental practice should operate and has completely transformed the patient experience. The institute also operates the Professional Development Centre, which provides hands-on laser-technology training for dental and medical professionals from all over the world. 4D Leadership, by Dr Hisham Abdalla, published by Lasergenius Creative Publishing, is available at selected bookstores and online on Amazon, Kindle and on the website www.4dleadership.com or www.drhisham.com ends.
