With real life stories, psychological insights, and rigorous research, "The Unlocked Leader" offers practical tools to help leaders eliminate their mind traps, and learn to lead with greater empathy and humanity.
NEW YORK, Sept. 26, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Today more than ever, leading with humanity and empathy is mission-critical for any team or organization seeking to achieve its highest potential. Yet too many leaders suffer from mind traps that confine their ability to inspire, allowing them to stay locked up inside themselves. They remain trapped with the notion that they must be superhero leaders - infallible, unflappable, and fearless - even as human leaders -- who embrace empathy, vulnerability, and authenticity -- are proven most effective.
In THE UNLOCKED LEADER: Dare to Free Your Own Voice, Lead with Empathy, and Shine Your Light in the World (Wiley, September 26, 2023), veteran executive leadership coach Hortense le Gentil combines real life stories, deep psychological insights, rigorous research, and practical tools to reveal how leaders can free themselves from their mind traps and learn to lead more effectively with palpable humanity. Hortense examines prominent leaders from business and popular culture—from Marie Kondo and Ralph Lauren to Steve Jobs and Apple TV's Ted Lasso—to explore what modern leadership can evolve to encompass.
The Unlocked Leader reveals how to:
- Identify 'Mindtraps' -- any mental obstacles that ground you in old ways of thinking, sap your energy, and hold back your company and employees.
- Operate a 'Mindshift' -- find the courage to challenge your mind traps and confront your fears.
- Achieve a 'Mindbuild' -- re-imagine the kind of leader you can be, and then strategically put this image into action.
The journey from superhero leader to human leader will profoundly transform leaders and employees alike, and help companies function better as a whole. In fact, human leaders make an impact and shine their light in the world by changing the way they connect. This starts a chain reaction that reverberates throughout organizations and across their interconnected networks of human relationships.
The Unlocked Leader is a practical and impactful new guide for those who strive to lead not just with their heads, but with their hearts and souls—and in doing so, will inspire many others in the service of something bigger than themselves.
