SAL Theory Publication



Self-Action Leadership (Volumes I and II) provides the first, and only, books of their kind in the academic world today. This two-volume set single-handedly carves out a new and unique scholarly niche by providing the only comprehensive, secular manual to holistically address society’s universal need for personal leadership and character development. Its single-minded aim is the global promotion and proliferation of leadership, character, and life-skills education in nations, communities, organizations, schools, homes, and individual lives throughout the world.

The concept of Self-Action Leadership (SAL) is rooted in 30 years of extensive research spanning the fields of self-leadership, leadership, action research, character education, existential philosophy, and autoethnography. In addition to drawing on the scholarship of these extant academic fields, SAL simultaneously builds upon them by introducing an original theory and model that executives, administrators, scholars, teachers, and practitioners alike can universally utilize to their own advantages and to the benefit of their colleagues, subordinates, and students.

Volume I contains the first four (of eight) book sections in the two-volume set. These book sections, referred to as “Books,” introduce the concept of “Life Leadership” (Book the First) as part of a larger introduction to SAL (Book the Second). The SAL Philosophy and SAL Theory are then introduced in Books the Third and Fourth, respectively.

Volume II contains the last four book sections and the appendices for the combined volumes. These book sections, referred to as “Books,” include the Self-Action Leadership Model (Book the Fifth), a collection of real-life anecdotes illustrating SAL in action (Book the Sixth), a Pedagogy of Personal Leadership and Character Development (Book the Seventh), concluding remarks (Book the Last), and the Freedom Focused Corporate Declaration of Independence and Constitution (in conjunction with the other appendices).

Dr. Jensen's Doctoral Dissertation

Jordan Jensen Freedom Focused self-leadership training is based on an original theory and model of self-leadership. In his doctoral dissertation: Self-Action Leadership: An Autoethnographic Analysis of Self-Leadership Through Action Research in Support of a Pedagogy of Personal Leadership, Jensen chronicles significant personal life challenges he has faced, including a two-plus decade bout with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and depression. He describes the self-leadership strategies he successfully employed to transcend those challenges.
