This book is timely in the light of the challenges of 2020 that have tested and challenged leaders across all disciplines. The author skillfully captures and distils the personal traits and habits that have allowed these leaders to thrive and succeed in the midst of global crisis. She reminds us of the importance of true connection, trust and collaboration, without which, we would never have seen the amazing collaborative achievements initiated by both private and public sector leaders in the face of the recent unprecedented challenges. This book contains ageless principles embodied by leaders who have been able to realise their potential and leave a lasting legacy for those they serve. I recommend this book to all leaders who are seeking to enhance their self-awareness, personal presence and leadership effectiveness. I highly recommend this book.
Love From Our Clients
I loved this book – what a great reminder to ensure I practice presence with the people that need my undivided attention the most – my team. As a people manager in a fast paced, dynamic, multifaceted online business, REA Group, my focus can be pulled in multiple directions, this book reminded me of the importance and benefit of being present in all I do. It has revolutionised my work day, making it much more enjoyable for me and has resulted in a more productive, collaborative and happier team. This book was easy to digest, fun to read and I highly recommend it.
I absolutely loved this book. It was practical, informative and transformative. I scribbled down pages of notes and loved the practical examples, case studies and activities throughout the book. I loved the idea of the triangle and how each section of presence informs the other. This is a must read for leaders and individuals who have the courage to put in the work to achieve the results for themselves and for those they lead.
I can highly recommend this book. It demonstrates beautifully that in order to be a great leader there is no way around knowing yourself and connecting with yourself first. This book reminded me to reflect on my core values again and dig deep. Having read numerous books on ‘leadership’ Sheila’s book is like a breath of fresh air, written with authenticity, skill and profound knowledge.
