I loved this book! Lead with Authenticity is internally consistent with the notion of the importance of character in leadership. I also liked the fact that Gary Ostwald acknowledges that leadership is a choice one makes signifying commitment...and this is as important as talent. --Dr. Lloyd Lewan, Executive Dean Emeritus, Semester at Sea.
Lead with Authenticity offers sound practical advice from a strong theoretical foundation and challenges the heart, not just the mind. Dr. Ostwald provides practical tools, honest vignettes, and striking imagery. He is persuasive without being preachy. His book gives the reader a clear illumination on the bridge between good self-management and great team management. --Dr. Murray Young, Dean of Business, Thompson Rivers University.
Lead with Authenticity has been so relevant and practical for me. Professor Ostwald is an amazingly strong teacher with a very engaging and empowering style. He makes the material come to life. Thank you for your investment into the lives of aspiring leaders. --Selena Headley, Executive Director, Community Development Leadership School.
