Having seen Gina Folk demonstrate and prove the effectiveness of these skills for more than 20 years, this compilation of leadership lessons should be on the shelf of every leader of people. It is truly accessible and practical knowledge for meaningful people motivation and authentic leadership.
Craig Salazar Chief Financial Officer, Employer Advantage Healthcare Solutions
Folk REALLY understands what it means to be in the trenches as a growing leader, and is not just another “expert” sharing techniques that may or may not work for your company. As leaders we are oftentimes under prepared, under confident and under supported. In her book Ms. Folk addresses all of these issues with an ease of understanding that is greatly appreciated and via techniques that cross through to ALL businesses. This book has not only helped me to feel validated that what I am going through is not “just me”, it has also helped me to become a much more effective leader- and parent!
