This is a small book, that you could probably read in 20 minutes. And if you did read it in 20 minutes, you would get some value. But as the title says, change starts within you. And the 20-minute read doesn’t allow the book to get within you in a way that it can have the most impact. The subtitle – Unlock the Confidence to Lead with Intuition further sets the stage for the book, but it’s more of personal leadership book, than a “Leadership” book.
Cortney was an accomplished executive who left all that “success” behind to become an entrepreneur, because in large part, she realized her life wasn’t balanced the way she wanted it to be. Through this book she is challenging the reader to consider some of the universal questions she considered then gives us tools to apply to help us reach whatever destination we set.
Because it is short, the book doesn’t have checklists and extensive how-to’s (it does have some template that can be downloaded from her website), rather it cuts to the heart of the matter and trusts you to take the next steps with her encouraging starting points.
I became aware of this book when it was sent to me, to encourage me to have Cortney on The Remarkable Leadership Podcast. Based on this book, I decided to invite her and I am glad I did. You can listen to our conversation here.
This book is a great book for you to read, and in part because of its size and style it would make a great gift book too.
