Summary

Become a passionate, purposeful, and meaningful leader through identifying who you are, your strengths, and your skills.

New York Times best-selling author Stedman Graham's Identity Leadership is a very personal and prescriptive guide that is based on his philosophy that a leader can't lead others until he can first lead himself - the more he works on himself, the more he can give to those around him. To know our purpose in life, we begin with our passions, skills, and talents, and with this book we learn how to channel the best of who we are to achieve success for ourselves and those we lead. 

In Identity Leadership, Graham examines why self-awareness matters, how leaders lead, the importance of communication, and much more. He then shows the listener how to step into their role as a leader and create their identity leadership plan. Key to the journey is believing in yourself, knowing your competence, continually challenging yourself, and being patient with yourself. Graham uses anecdotes from his own life, as well as discussing successful leaders, to illustrate the importance of identity leadership in each of our lives. 

Self-leaders can create a roadmap that leads to personal growth, development, and improvement of performance in every area of life. Identity Leadership provides the tools-self-awareness, emotional intelligence, discipline, and more - needed to continually plan and execute learning and development of our talents and skills. These tools enable readers to commit to a personal vision and lead with purpose.

Critic reviews

"SG is one of today's leading authorities on emotional intelligence (Identity Intelligence). Seminars are highly effective because they make you focus on the true leader within yourself." (David M. Reynolds, CMF, VP, Associate Director, Merrill Lynch)

"Stedman is an artist with unique communication skills that so effectively helped reach these individuals on levels that possibly they have never previously experienced, and I believe that the candor, openness of communication, 'tough talk', and practical discussion on their skill development will lead to remarkable maturation and an appreciation of greater personal accountability and for their personal development." (Mike Fox, CEO of the Muhammad Ali Center)

"Skillfully challenged a very accomplished gathering to deal with their history and habits. A cathartic experience that suggested a deeper understanding of who you are provides a roadmap for the next steps in your journey. Deduced from the definition of leadership: Leaders with a servant's heart, that do not manage from above (who manage from their identity) will provide the most effective leadership in the 21st century." (Mark D. Settles, Managing Director, Fixed Income, JP Morgan Asset Management)

Ready to Lead

I just finished the book, but am going to listen to it again. I listened to Identity Leadership while commuting to and from work. I was getting annoyed with my work, but now I am taking a different approach. Thanks for the many words of wisdom.
