Looking unflinchingly at our outdated worldview, Silsbee makes his case with scholarship, grit, and elegant prose.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.

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!
While the two earlier works focused on coaching, this work opens the door to the challenges facing all leaders. Through simple (though not necessarily easy) attention and presence, it almost magically helps leaders see other possibilities. By sensing, being and acting through each of three lenses--context (the situation we are in), identity (our story about who we are) and soma (the messages we receive from our bodies)--we can not only see things we could not see before, but we can open up new ways of being and new possibilities for action.
In a complex world where doing more of the same is often not the answer, the richness of Doug's work, and the possibilities it reveals, rewards multiple readings. I use these perspectives daily in my own work with leaders.
Doug says that this book is the culmination of his life's work. He should be proud to leave this trilogy, and all the students and leaders he has impacted with it, as his legacy.
