Vince PoscenteNY Times Bestselling Author, ``The Age of Speed``
It’s high time we re-defined “brave,” particularly in the context of management and leadership. Kimberly Davis’s Brave Leadership challenges outdated assumptions and offers fresh perspective for emerging leaders who want to be true not only to the people inspired to follow them, but to themselves. Davis’s book is an essential roadmap to the kind of self-discovery that helps develop strong, confident, authentic leaders.
Donna FennAuthor of ``Upstarts: How GenY Entrepreneurs are Rocking the World of Business``
In these times, to be an effective leader, Brave Leadership is imperative. Fortunately, we’re guided expertly along this path by a fantastic mentor and teacher. This is a book for every potential and current leader to own, to study, and to review often!
Bob BurgCoAuthor of The Go-Giver and The Go-Giver Influencer
Brave Leadership is a book written about real leadership, the kind that is expressed through a shaky voice with sweaty palms and a tightened stomach, like everyday leadership if we are honest about it. Kimberly Davis takes us on a journey through the emotional, psychological, and physiological sensations that hijack our best. Wrapped in the warm and compassionate hug of her own experience, she whispers her magic into our ear and then pushes us out on the stage with a gentle, you can do it. A must read for those who aspire to lead.
Mike Cook, Author, Thriving in the Middle
