For the leader in your life who cares:
Brave Leadership is a Choice: An Inclusive Guide to Creating Belonging, by Crystal Whiteaker
This book is for leaders who care deeply about cultivating inclusive, human focused environments to support greater connection, creativity, and collaboration. Leaders will be guided through examining their roles in creating inclusive environments and learn how to
• Get rooted in core values to make aligned decisions.
• Identify and disrupt bias on personal, professional, and community levels.
• Embody an inclusive leadership style that reflects their core values and how they want to support others.
• Create a sense of belonging from within so more people feel brave enough to be who they are in the spaces they engage in.
• Cultivate space for people to direct energy towards creativity, collaboration, and productivity, rather than worrying about whether or not they’re welcome or belong in a space.
For the person in your life who is looking to be heard:
Getting heard is a tricky business: It’s what you say and how you show up, filtered through your audience’s assumptions and biases—and maybe even your own. For women, people of color, immigrants, and queer folks, there’s often a dissonance between how you speak and how we collectively think powerful people should speak: like the wealthy white men who’ve historically been in charge. But, fortunately, the sound of power is changing.
For the person looking to manifest the life they’ve always wanted:
The Quinn Essentials empowers you to receive the life you have always wanted to manifest. These nine transformational tools will ignite, balance, create or recreate your life whether it’s in love relationships, career or your personal life. The first four tools are the inner life essentials you must align with to begin receiving your dreams. The second four tools are the outer life essentials that are vital in order for you to powerfully create empowerment in your life. And the last tool ties them all together; a balanced woman.
When women are balanced, they are unstoppable! These tools, working together, awaken your greatness and allow you to sustainably live in your true power. Join the thousands of women worldwide who are already using the nine transformational tools featured in this life-enriching book as their curriculum for empowerment.
For the Sales Manager living in a hybrid world:
