Compassion, courage, and humility. Author Andrea Chilcote presents these as internal capabilities that can be grown, honed, and nurtured through essential practices of development, reflection, and acknowledgment. Leaders with a strong sense of purpose, or those seeking one, will find this work simultaneously provocative and reassuring as we pursue leadership so needed now. "Masterful." "Laser-focused." "Timeless." These are words being used to describe What Leaders Need Now. Author Andrea Chilcote presents compelling evidence for three inner leadership qualities essential at this time of transformation: compassion, courage, and humility. The book is well-researched, drawing on diverse thought-leaders' perspectives; practical, offering relatable examples from the author's work as a coach; and expressive, stirring emotion in the reader as to how we feel about and connect to our work lives. Chilcote grounds the work in key leadership practices: development, reflection, and acknowledgment. These allow us to examine beliefs, behaviors, and values and begin to, as the author says, "embody the leader at the heart of our being."
