Product description


"This book is a masterclass in communication. Packed with case studies, stories and research it has a perfect blend of anecdote and data. Soft is indeed the new hard, and sometimes it's real hard. But as Leah has shown with succinct and elegantly simple concepts, it's a skill that can be learned. Full of many eye-opening, "wow!," moments and many, more reassuring "phew, it's not just me" moments, this isn't just a book for leaders, it's a book for life.

Rachael Robertson, Antarctic Expedition Leader, Leadership Expert and Author of Leading on the Edge: Extraordinary Stories and Leadership Insights from the World's Most Extreme Workplace

"If you are a leader who wants to be heard in the 21st century, this book decodes the future of communications."

Oscar Trimboli - Author & Award Winning Podcaster of Deep Listening

"I wish I'd had this book as a reference when I started my leadership career. I'm glad it's been written now. This will be a go-to book in my organisational leadership and coaching practice. I'll be buying it for many of my clients. There are so many concepts in here that I value, it's hard to choose one. Yet this, for me, sums up the book "Respect is everything as a leader. And to get it, you need to communicate in a way that connects." If you want to ensure you're on top of your communication game, you simply must read this book.

Maree McPherson, Leadership and Executive Coach, Professional Mentor, and Author of Cutting Through the Grass Ceiling: Women Creating Possibility in Regional Australia

"In 'Soft is the New Hard', Leah has created a very practical guide that gives all of us the opportunity to become more effective communicators under pressure. Being aware of what drives and motivates us and influences our choices in communication, enables all of us to step into a conversation in a very different way. Understanding our own impact and taking 'control' of the choices we make and the way in which we engage others, creates very different outcomes - ones that enable us to move forward and remain 'above the line'. The compelling stories that she shares throughout the book and the practical examples offered for us to test and explore also make this content very real and current. We are looking forward to continuing to use it ourselves and recommending it to others."

Gayle Hardie and Malcolm Lazenby, Co-Founders, Global Leadership Foundation​​​​​​​
