From the Inside Flap
Leaders are lauded for driving bottom line results. However, they often forget the cost incurred when they ignore the people side of attaining those results. Unleashing Your Inner Leader: An Executive Coach Tells All gives leaders (and those aspiring to leadership roles) a blueprint for enhancing their overall leadership performance, becoming an authentic leader, and ultimately leaving a stellar professional legacy. International leadership strategist Vickie Bevenour (Coach Vickie) shows how to unleash the powerful leader inside you by identifying the elements that are key to success, practicing them regularly, and making them habits.
As Bevenour explains, anyone can take their leadership to the next level if they understand their values, strengths, skills, and past accomplishments in order to build a platform for future successes. Drawing on Coach Vickie's experience working with more than 4,000 clients in 17 countries, Unleashing Your Inner Leader presents her time-tested exercises and winning strategies for leveraging your Inner Leader in order to reach new career heights.
Step by step, Unleashing Your Inner Leader maps out a plan for conducting a personal "forensic intervention" in order to craft a strategy to overcome obstacles to success, help gain unmistakable clarity about yourself, and focus on the abilities that match your organization's needs. Bevenour's dynamic approach helps you develop your passion about your mission to the point that it permeates your organization and builds the culture, regardless of your rank. By tapping into Coach Vickie's expert advice and practical exercises, you can become a leader that inspires your team by sharing the spotlight and encouraging coworkers to excel, operating with authenticity that will maximize results.
Unleashing Your Inner Leader gives you the tools for recognizing where you fall on the leadership spectrum, and offers a guide for shaping your brand of leadership to capitalize on your authentic capability and potential.
From the Back Cover
Praise for UNLEASHING YOUR INNER LEADER
"A 'must' read for all business leaders. Be prepared to be inspired! Vickie Bevenour's (Coach Vickie's) approach to discovering your 'inner leader' is engaging, incisive, authentic, and pragmatic. A can't miss formula for professional and personal growth."
Debbie Murtha, Retail Consultant (former Senior Vice President of Macy's and May Department Stores)
"This book has universal value to anyone aspiring to or already occupying a leadership position. Its greatest strength is the articulation of the simple yet powerful notion that we each OWN our leadership potential. The follow-on notion that we can optimize that potential as leaders by demanding excellence of ourselves becomes the challenge to the reader. The author then offers a great series of learning devices to enable that growth. The end game is the recognized requirement by the would-be leader that sustained excellence comes only with his or her commitment to the lifelong self-awareness and improvement cycle that keeps us current and viable as leaders."
James M. Loy, Admiral, U.S. Coast Guard (Retired) Senior Counselor, The Cohen Group
"Vickie masterfully uses real leadership growth stories to coach us on how to manage our value, not just our careers. She illuminates a sustainable path to personal and professional fulfillment by showing us how to create and leverage high self-awareness to ultimately leave an inspiring legacy."
Horace McCormick Jr., former Vice President, Human Resources, Fidelity Investments and Executive Coach
"Filled with real coaching vignettes and thought-provoking exercises, it's just like sitting down for one-on-one coaching with Vickie! Whether you ead the book from cover to cover, or work through it a section at a time, you will emerge from it a changed leader."
