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.
