Tony Brooks is the author of PI Leadership: The 7 Positive Insight Steps to Peak Performance as a Business Leader. This leadership development book is a treasure chest of practical advice you can implement immediately to make a difference to your results and fulfilment in your leadership development journey. This will be invaluable whether you are an SME leader, executive leader in an organisation, or a solo business owner.
This book will revolutionise your leadership mindset and dramatically changed the way you ‘Think’ about and ‘See’ your world, enabling you and your people to ‘Do’ the right things to significantly improve your results.
Tony Brooks’ PI Leadership stays permanently on my bedside table. Here’s why…
Before tackling the more technical areas of marketing and sales, Tony prioritises vital elements such as self-leadership and developing a brand. His focus is on YOU developing YOUR leadership skills, and this is really helpful when we engage in a process of putting our own personal values and those of our businesses into concrete statements, ready to be translated as meaningful marketing messages.
At the end of the book Tony’s passion for getting to know his readers and helping in any way he can is highlighted again by his invitation to contact him with any questions. I’ll be dipping into this book over and over again for useful tip and ideas. I thoroughly recommend this book for all those seeking to increase success and fulfilment as a leader.
A really useful well written book
I found it easy to adapt the strategies into my own business and keep dipping back into the book as my business grows. Highly recommend.

Read the book, get the T-shirt
I was recommended this book and I was glad I was. The book covers similar ground to others I have read but what makes it great is the simple, practical way it communicates. You can apply it immediately and get results immediately. I have read the book, seen Tony speak, and have now been on a course run by him. All very beneficial. Just need to get the T-shirt.
Amazon Review – Patrick Burge
PI (Positive Insight) Leadership…exactly what it says…great read, and reference book to refer back to.
Fantastic Book…I don’t often read a book twice, straight after, but this one I will.
Full of lots of useful insights…some you’ve perhaps heard before, lots you haven’t…But now they are all in one book.
Tony also runs a course to support the book to develop the skills and work through the exercises in the book…5*
I bought 2 more as gifts! Well done Tony Brooks.
Amazon Review – Martin Aukland
Excellent book with some good ways to manage yourself effectively and keep positive. A must for all business leaders.
Attaining Excellence In Your Coaching & Management Skills
Training yourself to lead yourself and others is a prerequisite for a successful business. Reading through the thoughts, knowledge, facts, exercises and resources embedded in the book will propel any proactive leader to excellence. I am really fascinated by the exercises thrown in the dice to reflect, remind and prompt readers to be self-conscious in pursuit of coaching knowledge to impact to all those that come into the circles of the leaders’ influence. 1. “Coaching is now becoming a form of management due to its effectiveness,” Realise Partners. 2. “Success starts with taking ownership of your success!” Bill Walsh. 3. “Wasting my time is wasting my life. I don’t give time-wasters a foothold in my life, if they are paying for my professional services or not.”
Amazon Review Sam Obeng Tuudah
An inspirational read
I read a lot of business and leadership books and this is one is great. I really do buy into the concept covered in the first three chapters about working on your own mindset first. You genuinely do feel better just for reading the book and when you start implementing things covered in the book it all becomes self perpetuating. I have started writing down 5 positive things everyday which also gives me a greater appreciation of things outside of business life.
The book is written in a fluid way which makes it really easy to understand and relate to. The exercises are good to fill in as you go along and make it more like a workshop with useful takeaway bits as you go along. My copy now sits on my desk with a select few inspiring books I have read in the past for reference when needed.
I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending reading this book.
Amazon Review Robert Deans
Does MORE than the title, highly recommended
Does more than the title! Yes it is an insight and is very easy to read. Some great points raised for me to think about and work on to become more positive, more often. As with the discovery workshop offer, fantastic! If you want to be more positive and become a better leader, having the right support and understanding is critical. I would highly recommend this, completely changed the last 3 months of my professional and personal life.
Amazon Review Craig Harbron
Insightful and practical ways to develop your leadership approach
A well written and concise book. Tony provides good insights referencing established research and ideas. Without the need to explain the theories underlying the insights he focuses on practical ways you can put the ideas into practice – which is what the book is all about. You’ll find some of the approaches and ideas new, some you will know or have heard of, however Tony puts them into a framework that enables you to develop your leadership style in a practical way. Great book to read, re-read and dip in and out of, use the exercises and be disciplined to implement them and they will make a difference.
Amazon Review Andrew Bailey
Great insights well presented accessible and helpful
This is a really good book with both nuggets to be had by dipping in and out with a greater value to be had from thoughtful study – it’s well worth getting and I intend revisiting it over and over again … Tony deserves a wide audience and its relevant foal levels of leadership so I would recommend It to everyone who has any responsibility and wishes to exercise it in a positive way that will benefit all around them, above and below.

Positive mind and the correct tools to give excellent results
If you are serious about changing your mind set and results this book will help you to succeed. The focus and ideas in this book to help you control your thoughts and engage in positive thinking are brilliant and have helped me in my professional and personal life. The book focuses on all the key areas for a business to be successful and the techniques and ideas to have a clear business strategy plan of where you are and want to be are great.
I would highly recommend to extend further than just the book with the discovery workshop and if like me then further courses in the areas you feel could be better.
A very easy read.

This book will help you in business and in life!!
Tony Brooks is a masterful writer and speaker. I bought this book after a friend of mine recommended it, I found it so so practical and Tony has a way of making the profound seem simple and really really obvious. As a result of reading this book, I’m now a better communicator and am a better leader of the the teams that I manage. Simple stuff made thought provoking and practical. Thanks Tony.
