For several years I wanted to write a book, even sat down and actually wrote a few chapters, but always ended up thinking, This isn’t fun – this isn’t the book I want to write.
UNTIL LAST YEAR!
Last year I threw caution to the wind, I threw out traditional ideas about what a leadership book should look like and feel like for business, and I threw out sleep. 😉 Instead, I followed my passion for storytelling, decided to write a book that would be significantly meaningful to leaders, and would be highly engaging, insightful and fun to read!
I dove in, mind, body, spirit, heart, brain—head, shoulders, knees, and toes—to birth this baby (I feel like I should change my family status on Facebook) while still running a business and working with clients.
And now it’s here, in all its glory (minus my actual blood, sweat and tears) and I’m beyond thrilled to share it with you.
So What IS This Book?
First, it’s one-of-a-kind. Seriously. There’s nothing like it in the business section on leadership. This book comprises 14 creative character monologues that reveal The Secrets Leaders Keep.
Think of it as a “business & leadership” meets “characters & parables” meets “insights & wisdom” guide.
Second, people have been telling stories for thousands of years. Storytelling is ingrained in our DNA. There are some aspects of life where we just need to hear stories in order to better understand the message.
The 14 stories in this book reveal secrets that most leaders would not normally share—secrets about their politics, philosophies and perceptions. Secrets about who they are, how they play, why they lead in a certain way, and secrets about what prevents them from leading more effectively. Each story is a creative amalgamation from my work with leaders.
Each story represents the themes and patterns I witnessed while working with numerous executives from hundreds of companies around the globe over the past 20 years. You’ll recognize individuals you’ve worked with over the years, heck, you might even wonder…Is this me?!
That’s the point!
What’s made me really happy about this book so far is that readers are already receiving benefit from these characters’ stumbling attempts with the Leadership Learning Curve.
Early reviewers have shared that it’s “a must read for leaders,” “highly engaging,” that I “hold up a mirror to our own thoughts, rationales and inner demons” and readers can feel my “energy and inspiration jump off the first page of the book.”
