True North: Discover Your Authentic Leadership, by Bill George

True North: Discover Your Authentic Leadership
brings the principles of self-development – what we teach at Power Living – to the business world. It was one of the books that served as confirmation for our own work. Former Medtronic CEO and Harvard Business School (HBS) professor Bill George, with co-author Peter Sims, share the wisdom of 125 top leaders such as Charles Schwab and Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz. They describe how you can develop as an authentic leader, covering areas such as defining your values and leadership principles, understanding your motivations and building your support team. I had the pleasure of participating in a True North Leadership module led by Bill George as part of a Harvard Kennedy School Executive Education program on Global Leadership. It was powerful to see how the exercises in the book helped to transform the thinking of all of the participants.
