The Alter Ego Effect reveals a practical method to unleash your real capability. In one of the hottest books amongst leaders in a decade, you'll find out how an 'Alter Ego' is one of the most natural things your mind wants you to use. And how it's a powerful move to battle the resistance you face when pursuing your ambitions.
 
There's only one person in the way of you being able to untapping your capabilities: You. There's also one person who can move you out of the way so you can perform at your peak. That 'self' is already inside you. You just need to unlock them. After twenty-one years of working with elite athletes, performers and leaders, Todd Herman reveals how you can use your alter ego to achieve the seemingly impossible. 
 
The Alter Ego Effect is not about creating a false mask--it's about finding the hero already inside you. It's a proven way of overcoming the self-doubt, negativity, and insecurity that hold you back and empower you to ultimately become your best self.
 
Todd Herman has been working with the highest achievers in sports and business for over two decades. He is the creator of the multi-award-winning Leadership & Skills Development Program, 90 Day Year, and author of the WSJ bestselling book, ‘The Alter Ego Effect: The Power of Secret Identities to Transform Your Life’ and ‘My Super Me,’ a book for children to help them find their hero within and be more confident and courageous.
