"In a world where it is increasingly easy to fake the voice you think you're supposed to have (see the parade of manicured social media accounts), Todd's new book is a flare on the road back to honesty. If you're tired of façades, rediscover your real voice with the wisdom inside this book."
"Our authentic voice is the key to the jobs, clients, and creative work that fuel our lives. Todd Henry clearly and soulfully lays out the path for discovering and communicating your unique message and value to the world. This book is essential for anyone who cares about making a difference."
"Figuring out what you're meant to do in this world is challenging, but Todd serves as an en- couraging guide, always nudging the reader to think bigger. This is a thought-provoking book, yet still practical enough to help readers build progress toward their callings into daily life."

Louder Than Words challenges you to find the power of your authentic voice by developing its three elements Identity, Vision and Mastery.
The book is broken down into 3 sections:
1) Reasons why people struggle to develop their voice
2) Voice Engine - mechanism for allowing you to identify, develop and use your voice to achieve impact
3) Practical day-to-day advice for implementing your voice inspiring you to act differently as you shape your work in whatever field you might be.
As an Executive Assistant I wear many hats, assisting a variety of team members while being a volunteer leader in my community.
Todd's books give you the tools to use in your daily life to think & act differently, Louder Than Words - this is a book for doers, which I'm a doer, I make things happen.
The tools in each section in Louder Than Words are challenging, but in order to act differently you must challenge yourself to change. At the end of each chapter has a Checkpoint with an Excavation, Observation and Redirection to keep you on point to develop your authentic voice.
Chapters 4, 5 and 6 were most challenging for me, Challenge = Progress = Success
In Chapter 4 the Notables and Process of Capturing Notables through five categories of questions helps you identify sources for inspiration, new skills to learn and an patterns to explore as you develop your voice. In Chapter 5 who is your IA (Intended Audience) and what must you do to to impact your audience through empathy and master your voice in Chapter 6, practice every day with dailies and form a collective with your peers who inspire you.
Know Yourself, Choose Risk Everyday, Dedicate time to invest in yourself wrapping up the book with developing your team's voice
Wrapping up with Your Authentic Voice is a gift, how will you offer it to others today through your work today?
Answering that question is your life's mission through Louder Than Words.
If I had read this early on in my professional creative life and not 20 years in I may have gotten more out of it than I did.
I want to exalt the practical, because it's often overlooked for more flowery language or grand existential themes in other similar books. With Louder Than Words, he grabs you by the shoulders and states the obvious that others (myself included) are afraid to state for risk of not being completely "original." At times, his obvious statements may have only slightly insulted my intelligence (Ch. 5: empathy vs. sympathy was a little drawn out on the explanation between the two), but it's more than acceptable because I understand and appreciate the point he wants to drive home. And truth be told, I can be thick-headed.
Todd tells you straight up, this is a book for doers. I looked at that as a challenge to me as I continued through the book and now also as I implement the tested practices he has graciously provided.
Ultimately, it is a book that resonated with me in my current situation, motivated me into immediate action with his workbook style questions, and one that I have immediately turned around and already started the 2nd read. This will be a book that lives by my computer, dog-eared and worn with fingerprints because I will continue to reference it on this journey to find and maintain my authentic voice and strive to do my best work everyday. Thank you, Todd.
