ABOUT THE BOOK
Transformational Leadership is a soulful practice, a practical job, and everything in between.
You are breathing new life into an organization, and that energy comes from the spirit of the people. Transformations are usually designed to improve business results, but what’s the point if it doesn’t make our lives better?
The nature of transformation is that it’s about uncharted territory, and that means that the answers are unknown. This book will offer you tools to get oriented, identify patterns, and work through the challenges without feeling lost and overwhelmed.
If you’ve ever felt like you could help but no one was listening, or people were resistant to your help, this book will help you stay grounded and supported in your work. When it starts to feel like it’s you against the world, this book and this community are here for solace and support.
This book will be your partner while you dance between the soulful and practical.
WHO IS CULTIVATING TRANSFORMATIONS FOR?
This book is for transformational leaders.
How do you know if that's you?
You are leading change. And “leading” doesn’t have to mean that people work for you.
You identify with at least one of these terms: “Change Agent”, “Disruptor”, “Truth Teller”, “Pioneer”.
You feel stuck between trying to change the status quo and trying to work within the status quo.
You wish you had a framework or community for support.
If any of this sounds like you, you’ve found the right book!
