Courage, dear heart navigates the waters from a wake-up call to the moment where action becomes inevitable. For anyone who has a dream unfulfilled or who wants to lead others to theirs, this book is for you.
The Mindset of Encouragement looks at the power of mindset in determining how we structure and lead our organisations, and outlines the practices and skillsets of leaders who coach, perfect for anyone wanting to lead a culture or team from a place of empowerment, rather than control.
My first book was published at the beginning of 2019. The combination of personal stories and insights, derived from my own and my clients direct experience of navigating big changes in their work and working lives, had resonance. The book travelled far further than my circle of friends, clients, contacts and work colleagues from my former corporate career. As readers connected with the honesty, simplicity, practical tools (and mirror holding) that Courage, dear Heart offers, they went on to buy it for people they loved and thought might benefit.
When the signs of a Pandemic were emerging early 2020, just after I had returned from a trip to New Zealand, I knew it was time to write again. And in the space which provided so many of us a chance to reflect, slow down a little, innovate and create, I wrote The Mindset of Encouragement: How to Lead with more power and less control.
I recorded a podcast with Rhona Pearce you can check it out here where we discuss the themes arising from both books: how to ensure we are working in an organisation that mirrors who we are, what we stand for and what we want. Perfect stimulus for anyone open to work or looking to move to a culture which gives back more energy than it takes.
