SAN JOSE, Calif. (PRWEB) May 12, 2021
Wendy Ryan, CEO Kadabra, leadership expert, and angel investor, releases her new book, Learn Lead Lift, sharing examples of leadership experience through her work, and interviews with artists and entrepreneurs, athletes, and investors, educators and executives, and more.
We're living through the most disruptive time in our lifetime, and people are struggling to adapt. Imagine a world where people love going to work thanks to inspiring and supportive leaders who create a culture that lifts each team member up. If this has not been your experience, you are not alone. There are, however, companies and leaders that lead and lift their team and their organizations.
"Learn Lead Lift was written to inspire leaders and give them a framework for being / becoming great leaders who create teams where every person is valued and encouraged to fulfill their potential. The kind of workplace you are excited to enter each day," said author Ryan.
The book gives the nod to some of the greatest thought leaders of our time while illuminating Ryan's unique insights and frameworks, like The 3T Model™. Ryan describes how the model is intended to be an empowering mindset for leaders. It reinforces the notion that while we can't control everything that happens to us or our team (environment), we can choose our response. Leaders who embrace a 3T mindset tend to view the current state with healthy skepticism.
Great leadership is about people first, results second. Ryan writes that the secret to success is great leadership — and great leadership is all about making the lives of your team members or workers better.
Successful leaders start with who, then consider what, where, and how. This is powerful for two reasons. One, identifying who the best person or team of people to engage in researching an issue or solving a problem usually leads to better outcomes. Two, it pushes us to think beyond our own capabilities and recognize latent potential in the people around us.
With raving endorsements from industry pioneers, Learn Lead Lift further deepens the conversation, and personal journeys leaders take toward purpose-driven leadership.
“Brave, compelling and thoroughly original! Author Wendy Ryan challenges our traditional notions of leadership like no one else. Read Learn Lead Lift and take your own leadership skills to the next level!”

“Self-awareness is indispensable in leaders, but as Wendy Ryan notes, it’s insufficient. To be effective, leaders must also be able to adjust their thinking and behavior in response to their awareness. Learn Lead Lift is filled with these kinds of valuable insights that challenge leadership orthodoxy. I found valuable lessons in every chapter.”
