I am thrilled to announce that my book “Yours Truly: How to Stay True to Your Authentic Self in Leadership and Life” will be published by Bloomsbury in February 2018.
Yours Truly features a critical leadership framework –Heart, Habit, and Harmony- that will awaken your true authentic self to help build the future of your organization and achieve levels of greatness.
The 3 H´s of authentic leadership offer a practical tool to inspire people to follow you, to keep you in a personal growth mindset, and to design an authentic organization for your employees to shine and contribute to their community. The book organizes extant literature and includes practical insights into the phenomena of authentic leadership around three key concepts:
This is the emotional element of authentic leaders. Look inside yourself to find passion. Infect your followers with the passion virus and win over their hearts for inner motivation.
This is the behavioral element of authentic leaders. Seek out honest feedback in order to set new habits. Ask for critical feedback to adapt, grow and progress.
This is the element that guarantees the social enrichment of authentic leaders. Look after others. Build an authentic organization to develop followers. This way you will have long lasting influence, even when you are no longer here.
Yours Truly is the distillation of my research for over 20 years illustrated with real-world examples –from executives of multinational to start up founders. The book is based on a combination of in-depth original case studies from around the world and quantitative scientific research to broaden the scope of interest. Taking multiple theoretical lens, the book explains the fascinating psycho-social dynamics behind the charisma of many authentic leaders.
Remember, to become an authentic leader, you don´t need to be a superhero. Instead, shift to the mindset of unsung heroes.
