1) Tell us a little something about your book…
I made my literary debut with my book Awaken Your Inner Leader: Transform Stress, Develop Emotional Mastery and Thrive in the Fall of 2018.This book is the result of my life-long search to understand the many questions I had. Some of these questions included: What makes us whole? What breaks us down?What helps us stay in integrity? What drives our behaviour? What makes us good leaders, parents, and partners?I believe that a well-regulated nervous system in the human body is like a stable operating system in a computer; without it we cannot function efficiently. Additionally, it’s also a pre-requisite for self-leadership in every aspect of our lives; including our health, relationships, and our capacity to lead others.
2) When was your lightbulb moment?
Truthfully, this book lived inside for me years if not decades; albeit in a formless state. In the Fall of 2017, I decided to write a short e-book. However, as soon as I sat down outlining the book, I was flooded with stories of professionals I’ve worked with over the years, insights and wisdoms I’ve gained from their journeys, and a massive determination to create the full version printed book. Coincidentally, Awaken Your Inner Leader ends with a beautiful quote from the last note of a local teen who took his life in June 2018. I felt it was important to take those words of wisdom and love to our hearts. It’s time to unlock our inner power and create a better world.
3) Three words of advice…
Create communities and collaborate. Humans are wired to thrive in the presence of connection and a felt sense of safety.Nurture your self-leadership. In order to be a leader, you need to be a self-leader, first. Practice trusting your gut. It will guide you to your truth.
Create… Nurture… Practice
