Lyle’s new book, readers gain access to the advice and expertise of an executive with 30 years of experience.

“The Power of Being Yourself” offers readers – including managers of people – methods and inspiration to embrace their full diversity, as well as the diversity of others. Lyle deploys a practical, no-nonsense approach to help minorities navigate the business world. In addition, he also focuses on guiding managers of multicultural teams or organizations toward fostering a positive, supportive environment in the workplace.
An excerpt from “The Power of Being Yourself”:
“Whether it’s being denied the right to serve your country or the right to equal pay for equal work, injustice is all around us. It’s hard to effect any change to the situation if you are not your whole self. If you are not fully present. What’s important here is to break the cycle of silence.”
“I want them to know that regardless of their minority differences and their personal situation, you can make a real difference by being the real you,” he says.
