Looking unflinchingly at our outdated worldview, Silsbee makes his case with scholarship, grit, and elegant prose. This is a beautifully comprehensive inquiry into leadership. Written with passion, lucidity, and daring, this will be disquieting to some and useful to all; a wise and pragmatic light on the path of fully being human.
Founder, Strozzi Institute of Embodied Leadership; author of The Leadership Dojo
Silsbee's seminal third book offers radical new perspectives on our internal habits of thought, processing of information, and action. He offers a pragmatic and leading edge resource, offering powerful practices and detailed examples for the crucial work of our times: leaders setting an example for others by improving themselves.
Author or editor of 35 books including What Got You Here Won't Get You There and Triggers.
Silsbee's release of his third book completes a trilogy of comprehensive and ground-breaking work. He elegantly navigates the balance of expansion and pragmatism. Practices, perspectives, and real-world examples reveal keys to leadership presence, courage, and resilience in tumultuous times. Here is an essential, even radical, yet surprisingly accessible book.

I worked with Doug as a leadership coach during a period of major challenge to the global nuclear industry after Fukushima. Doug's human approach expanded my leadership thinking and deepened my self-awareness, presence, situational awareness and effectiveness during extremely demanding and complex challenges. This book offers you the keys.

Silsbee offers a powerful and pragmatic field guide for anyone doing difficult community "work." This unique book will help you recognize and shift your thinking and being, and therefore the foundation of your relationships. Here are the keys to disrupting patterns that keep us and our communities stuck, producing poverty, inequity, and violence.

If you are looking for quick tips, tricks and the recipe for leadership - this book may not be for you.
If you are looking for a book that; speaks to you in a direct and connected way, with grounded practices, experiments and new ways of being - I highly recommend you get this one!
On a personal level, embracing his model has allowed me to create space between some of my well-worn, embodied biological responses as well as my limiting mindsets and identity... opening up a world of choice. Grateful to Doug for his gift to me and this world.
I have had the distinct pleasure and privilege to have studied under Doug Silsbee over the last 14 months, and it’s with complete clarity that I can say this book is an imperative for today’s leaders.
A deep bow of gratitude to this wonderful man and the gifts he has bestowed upon our world at exactly the right time. It’s in our court to bring this new paradigm of leadership into the world!
