Absolutely Must Read; a thought-provoking, perceptive and significant contribution to the world
I highly recommend you read this perceptive and inspirational new book. It’s clear and easy to read format provides us all, with a much needed new way of defining ourselves and how we live in such a complex and rapidly changing world. It gives us a unique model to understanding ourselves better and knowing how to live a purpose-driven and intuition-based life, despite the chaos going on around us. In fact, reading this book during what has been a year of transition for me, has helped me to be brave and unlock my true purpose and live the life I actually want to create, with the courage to be myself, with everyone, everywhere, all the time. This is a well-structured, beautifully presented guidebook for living in the new world; for our everyday lives, our relationships and our businesses; with a meaningful and powerful foundation. The launch of this new book has, in my view, already created a Ripple Effect of authentic change in the world, where respecting differences and helping other people - inclusively - is at its heart. It resonants with my purpose and I know it will touch the hearts of many other people - especially other change-makers - all across the globe.
I love this book from the very start
It is perfect if you are working in a corporate and wondering why you don’t feel completely satisfied with your career OR if you are simply looking for a greater connection in your life. Amazingly honest and personal account along with sound insight in to the world we live in today. Worth all the 5 stars!
For anyone who wants to reach their full potential and help others reach theirs.
This thought provoking book highlights how we are living in a fast changing, complex and highly connected world. And whether we recognise it or not, we are all leaders. We are leading our kids, grand kids, family, friends, Facebook/Twitter followers, not just work colleagues. Our behaviour, conscious or unconscious, is constantly assessed by those around us. We impact on anyone that comes into our space, home or workplace. Even if we have the emotional intelligence to realise this, we can fall into the trap of wearing different faces to work, at home or down the pub.
Talita candidly shares her experience to demonstrate that by being as true to our authentic selves as possible, as often as possible, is highly rewarding for us and everyone around us. I also appreciated how Talita pulled in other contemporary strands such as mindfulness, compassionate leadership, the power of revealing our vunerability and being in ‘flow’. And how taking time to deeply understand your fellow humans can lead to powerful collaboration that transcends some long held diversity challenges.
Read this book if:
- you want to be a more effective leader in your family, community or workplace, where traditional alpha/command and control behaviour is becoming less effective and outmoded.
- you want to feel more grounded and content by aligning what you do every day to your ‘purpose’ and help build a more humane society.
Helen Lewis book review from goodreads.com
As an entrepreneur, as a woman, as a Mum, this book sings to me! Talita has a refreshingly positive but no-nonsense approach grounded in decades of high-level corporate experience. Her story of how she got to where she is today is not only inspiring but interesting. I learned so much from reading this book, not just about my opportunities for the future, but I’ve been able to be honest about where I’ve actually been struggling. It’s hard to admit that you wear a mask…either in work or at home, or in particular social circumstances. Being authentic, I’ve realised, is not a destination, it’s a journey. And this book helped clarify a lot in my head regarding my role as boss, colleague, client, employer, employee, mother, daughter, wife, sister, friend…Highly recommend this book to any man or woman who wants to become more self-aware in life generally (not just in work).
