This is a book for our times. It is for leaders, coaches and other practitioners who are searching for inspiration as they reflect on their leadership experiences and practice.
It is a collection of fifty two short pieces, written to invite you to connect with similar moments in your own life and work and to consider them more probingly. The book is meant to be read slowly – it is a written ‘thought for the week’.
The narratives are prompted by the author’s personal experiences and by thought-provoking themes brought to her attention by her executive coaching clients or by events in the world.
Many of them highlight the ‘gap’ between our leadership aspirations and our ability to live up to them, and gently challenge the reader to hold themselves to account and to tackle this disparity.
Throughout the book, readers are encouraged to make contact with their finest leadership spirit, and to anchor their choices in it.
