Every one of us can equip another to be their best self. Here is what is inspiring me.

Rosie's Must-Reads

The 15 Commitments of Conscious Leadership, Jim Dethmer, Diana Chapman & Kaley Warner-Klemp

Success requires moving from unconscious, fear-based leadership to conscious, trust-based leaderhip. This book inspired The Choice Line self-awareness work I’ve leveraged for more than a decade.

Daring Greatly, Brene Brown

To show up fully in life is risking getting your ass kicked. Read this and learn how to dare greately in your life (and see why the wholehearted parenting manifesto is key in our house).

Everybody Matters, Bob Chapman & Raj Sisodia

Bob and Raj are two of my favorite people and phenomenal forces for humanity! This book shares how we can transform our work and world by honoring and caring for people as valued human beings.

Start with WHY, Simon Sinek

Most of us know what we do; very few know WHY we do it. This book shows us why starting with a clear WHY (aka purpose) is key for indiviudal and organizational success.

An Everyone Culture, Bob Kegan & Lisa Lahey

Imagine if our workplaces helped us break past barriers and become the best versions of ourselves. This book unlocks the potential of Deliberately Developmental Organizations.

The Pause Principle, Kevin Cashman

In our VUCA world, we need to learn to pause and slow down in order to speed up. This book shows how the pause powers performance and why it’s a key skill for us all.

Immunity to Change, Bob Kegan & Lisa Lahey

What prevents meaningful change is our own psychological immune system and self-limiting narrative. This book walks through the Immunity to Change process to help you overturn your own immunity.

Bring Your Whole Self to Work, Mike Robbins

We get better results in life when we can show up authentically. This book shows how being vulnerable and bringing our whole selves into what we do is key to successful outcomes.

BRAVING the Wilderness, Brene Brown

Trust is built via sets of clear behaviors. Using the acronym BRAVING, Brene shows us how we can build trust and enhance our effectiveness. I leverage this in all team-based work I do.

Change Your Questions, Change Your Life, Marilee Adams

This is one of the first books I read that started my coaching journey and is foundational for all self-awareness work I do with people – recognizing and shifting from Judger to Learner thinking.

These are some of my professional heroes who have inspired me and who I've been fortunate enough to meet...and honored to have become friends with a few of them.
