Over the years, we all lose our innate freedom due to conditioning by our environment. Our authentic self gets unconsciously buried under a complex web of belief systems, pains, ego states, and behavioural patterns. This web partially separates us from our own inner power and inherently also from our leadership power. Being yourself in a world that constantly wants you to be different is a great challenge. Only those who engage in self-reflection and accept their strengths and weaknesses can actively manage and lead themselves and others – and bring about real sustainable change in their organization. Authenticity is a growth process that never ends and must be continually fostered. In her book “How to develop the Authentic Leader in you”, Nicole Heimann shows the how to develop authenticity, based on the Seven Dimensions of Leadership Intellignence and makes a strong case for the value of authentic leadership in our economy.
What people say about the book
“An excellent, thoughtful read to discover new dimensions of authentic leadership, highly recommended for leaders who want to create strong and sustainable leadership alliances. This book is a must!
"I love the simplicity, organization, reflection & action exercises. You have found simplicity in complexity in your non-linear approach to help us discover our core truth and transcend linear thinking and enter authentic cooperative leadership from inside out! Bravo! "
"How to Develop the Authentic Leader in You“ is one of the best books I have read in a while and will now be part of my favorites. The book pulls together so many perspectives that I have read in different books and articles however this book helps makes sense of all the connections between the insights. The 7 Dimensions of Leadership Intelligence are thought provoking and scary at the same time. I learnt so much on my journey through the book and had many ‘Ahha’ moments! Very thought provoking and meaningful book that put a fresh perspective on authentic leadership."
