Writing a book is both thrilling and frightening. It is one of the greatest demonstrations of vulnerability I can think of. The world needs more models of vulnerability. So why NOT share that with the world through your book? In my conversation with Robin L. Owens, Ph.D. on her “Leadership Purpose” podcast, we explore how aspiring nonfiction authors can turn their knowledge and experience into a message they can’t wait to share with the world.
In this interview, you’ll learn:
Why leaders need therapy
My greatest challenge, joy and lesson learned as an author
How workplace misery inspired my first book
Why conformity is NOT the path to success
The biggest hurdle you need to overcome to write your book
Why having a sense of purpose is central to my work

If you struggle to lead with authenticity and purpose, let’s fix that.
