'Imagine a world where personal and professional growth are one thing, where improving your relationships and owning your strengths at work translate directly into the rest of your life.
Creating a company culture like that is not a dream. Through personal stories and real-life conversations, Jonathan takes you into the room with managers and employees where real culture change happens, and shows you a new kind of employee mentoring where each person gets the real-time feedback, support, and clear boundaries we all need to get beyond the patterns that hold us back. In this provocative and timely new book, Jonathan brings together what he has learned over a twenty-year journey as an executive, entrepreneur, team leader and leadership trainer.
Combining his experience as the CEO and CBO of EMyth where he led the transformation of a global coaching brand with the lessons learned along his own personal growth journey, Jonathan walks us through a step-by-step approach that integrates the leading edges of both. You'll discover a way to lead your team that is both profoundly human and results-oriented at the same time. Whether you're a CEO or business owner, executive, team leader, consultant, or coach, Good Authority will give you new ideas and inspiration you can put into practice. Most importantly, it will give you permission to be more of who you are at work than you ever thought possible.
Bryan Sykes 5.0 out of 5 stars This book should be the bible for “effective leadership” October 4, 2016 Jonathan’s treatise successfully uncovers many ingrained leadership blind spots (behaviours and habits) that often go undetected resulting in ineffective leadership. I strongly recommend the Good Authority. Anyone who genuinely desires to better understand the underpinnings of influencing others to make positive change for the greater good would appreciate this read.
The book offers a much-needed paradigm for unlocking the hidden potential in others. The structure is set up like a careful surgeon working from the inside-out starting with basic tenets and principles of the Good Authority manifesto. I love #10 “The strength to wait for others to discover their own truth for themselves.” In era where disengagement is at an all time high, that principle alone is a game changer in terms of creating space that generates net value for all stakeholders.
In part one, you’ll be challenged to refashion your perspective about the concepts of culture and engagement through the lens of how each are best structured and functions to inform one another. In part two, you’ll explore a uniquely powerful paradigm to help people tap into their greater potential and to empower themselves to achieve greater success. Lastly in part three, you’ll bring it all together to focus on the practical tools and resources to bring about positive change right where you are. If you ever found your asking, “How can I offer the deepest part of my unique talent as a contribution to my community, work environment, or society at large?”, then let the Good Authority be your Sherpa.
