About the book

“This book is not a list of tips or short cuts. It does, however, provide a comprehensive guide for developing authentic leadership. So if you’re an emerging or a mature leader, a coaching professional, or one charged with developing curriculum for your organization, this book will help you manage yourself as well as get your team on the same page.

You may be just entering the world of leadership or you may be someone who has gotten distracted. Even exciting things can sidetrack you. Perhaps you were recruited for a leadership role, a job that gave you more responsibility, carried a more prestigious title, or was even a higher pay-grade. At first, the thrill of the new challenge gave you energy and you went for it! Then gradually the notion that there could be more, something deeper, something closer to your core self, faded.”
