The business and self-help shelves may be overflowing with success books, but author Libby Gill has found a totally fresh perspective on the topic of leadership: hope.

"Libby Gill offers us a roadmap to be positive and hopeful for the future. This is a must-read for those of us ready to embrace true hope!" —Marshall Goldsmith, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Triggers

Zeroing in on what she sees as the defining issue of creating a more purposeful and productive workplace, Gill explains the science of hope theory, which is "the interconnection between beliefs and behaviors," and explores how it can shift mindsets from siloed to collaborative and productivity levels from sluggish to robust.

The Hope-Driven Leader is not about feel-good theory or loaded with dry data. It's an accessible, multi-step action guide informed by the thousands of people Gill has coached in both the corporate and entrepreneurial worlds around the globe. It includes skill-building lessons based on research and illustrated by personal stories and case studies such as:

• Enhancing leadership skills
• Crafting a personal brand
• Becoming an influencer
• Managing global teams
• Navigating high-impact conversations
• Handling challenges specific to women leaders
• And much more

Whether you are a rising star or a seasoned leader in your own business, a corporation, or your community, The Hope-Driven Leader offers you a roadmap for instilling those positive beliefs and behaviors into the core of your being and the culture of your workplace. Let the journey begin!

“This is your action guide to smarter leadership, more effective teams, and bigger, better, faster results. Smart, generous, and impactful. Buy a copy for everyone on your team.” —David Newman, CSP, author of Do It! Marketing
The #1 New York Times bestseller. 1 million copies sold!

From thought leader Brené Brown, a transformative new vision for the way we lead, love, work, parent, and educate that teaches us the power of vulnerability.
 
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; . . . who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.”—Theodore Roosevelt

Every day we experience the uncertainty, risks, and emotional exposure that define what it means to be vulnerable or to dare greatly. Based on twelve years of pioneering research, Brené Brown PhD, LMSW, dispels the cultural myth that vulnerability is weakness and argues that it is, in truth, our most accurate measure of courage.

Brown explains how vulnerability is both the core of difficult emotions like fear, grief, and disappointment, and the birthplace of love, belonging, joy, empathy, innovation, and creativity. She writes: “When we shut ourselves off from vulnerability, we distance ourselves from the experiences that bring purpose and meaning to our lives.”

Daring Greatly is not about winning or losing. It’s about courage. In a world where “never enough” dominates and feeling afraid has become second nature, vulnerability is subversive. Uncomfortable. It’s even a little dangerous at times. And, without question, putting ourselves out there means there’s a far greater risk of getting criticized or feeling hurt. But when we step back and examine our lives, we will find that nothing is as uncomfortable, dangerous, and hurtful as standing on the outside of our lives looking in and wondering what it would be like if we had the courage to step into the arena—whether it’s a new relationship, an important meeting, the creative process, or a difficult family conversation. Daring Greatly is a practice and a powerful new vision for letting ourselves be seen.
