With Power Shift, Dr. Sherry Buffington and Marc Schwartz have laid out an excellent how-to manual for leadership in the 21st century.
The book is positioned as a guide for leading the emerging Millennial generation, but it could just as easily have been written as a guide for leadership period. The authors go beyond mere advocacy and offer many practical insights and practices that you can implement right away. I am an executive coach with 25 years of experience, and still gained several insights I have already started using with my clients. The model for authentic leadership fits perfectly into the principles of Conscious Leadership which is one of the 4 key pillars of Conscious Capitalism. The “8 Myths of Leadership” are some of the most cogent arguments I have read for transforming the predominant hierarchical and directive style of management. I highly recommend this book!
