Leading with Intention

Every interaction is an opportunity.
Every action has an impact.
Every moment is a choice.

Every interaction—whether you’re presenting to an entire organization or talking one-on-one with a colleague—is an opportunity to influence and inspire others to achieve extraordinary results. Your ability to do that depends on two factors:

  • How aware you are of your impact
  • The care and discipline with which you choose your actions, day-by-day, moment-by-moment

Leading with Intention challenges you to make a profound, deliberate mark on both your organization and the world around you. Informed by over 25 years of experience with leaders in Fortune 50 companies, biotech start-ups, financial services firms, and non-profit organizations, Leading with Intention provides real-life examples and practical tools for increasing your awareness and being more deliberate in your choices. You’ll want to apply its lessons immediately, and return to it again and again as a trusted resource.
