all about authentic leadership



The book challenges old ways of how we behave in business as leaders where much of the tactics have been based on the predictable or structured without flexibility. It explains the importance of breaking through behaviors, inner barriers and blocks that hold us back from building the skills and capacities needed in authentic leadership. With each block featured there is also a Make Your Shift exercise helping to break through the block and integrate change. Highlighting skills and capacities needed to navigate change and inspire others on the journey. Leading up to a deep dive into the authentic leadership archetypal gifts that will drive innovation over the next few decades. Many of these gifts come from a place of dormancy currently in each of us. Set by outdated precedence and old structures categorizing these gifts as weak or not impactful. In truth, they are the most important gifts of authentic leadership needed today and well into the future.

In Part 3 of the book, there are real life stories shared from leaders who model their authentic leadership gifts! I'm grateful to all of the contributors that made this book as real time and impactful as possible.
