Welcome back to the KineticFuture Book Club!
This is a fantastic book that I will be recommending again and again on our new Executive Presence group course and in my one to one coaching. For me, its key message is be open and be yourself and you will boost your executive presence.
It comes from vulnerability researcher, Brené Brown and it’s called ‘Daring Greatly’. I read it cover to cover without stopping. And then started reading it again. Only stopped by accidently smashing my iPad!
This book could have been written about me and for me. Judging by the millions of people that follow Brené on Ted, many men and women feel the same way.
In essence, it’s about daring to be yourself, not hiding and using strategies to help you stay courageous under fire. It’s about being more successful and happier. The way she tells the story is moving and hilarious. She struggles on the journey too. Her research work is exemplary. There’s no BS here. This is a book for men, women, the relentlessly ambitious and those already happy with their life today.
Buy Daring Greatly by Brené Brown on Amazon.
On our Executive Presence course you’ll learn to balance warmth and authority at work, how to be open and show vulnerability yet have people know you mean business. And how to do all this your own way, in your own style with your own values. It’s a tightrope worth walking. Contact us on +44 (0)1628 624312 to find out more.
