Growing Up at Work: How to Transform Personally, Evolve Professionally, and Lead Authentically by Yael C. Sivi and Yosh C. Beier is a leadership book that offers groundbreaking advice on leading one’s self and leading others in an authentic manner. In this book, the authors present the workplace as an avenue for self-exploration and growth at many different levels. While readers navigate through interpersonal and professional relationships, they are presented with the opportunity to discover themselves even better, and this book shows how readers can discover deeper layers of their personality, develop their emotional intelligence, and transform into leaders who develop strong and healthy employees and high performing teams.
This is not another run-of-the-mill book on leadership, but one that drills down to granular steps, practices, skills, and attitudes of mind that create effective leaders and growth in employees. The authors challenge readers to grow in self-awareness and to take inner work seriously because authentic growth starts from inside. This is a book for people who want to grow, who desire to have a healthy, positive influence on others, and anyone who takes their personal growth seriously. As one reads, one begins to understand the link between personal growth and positive influence and the fact that no successful leader takes their own growth lightly. The book presents powerful tools for self-growth and for developing the skills of effective leadership.
Yael C. Sivi and Yosh C. Beier are co-founders of Collaborative Coaching, a New York-based executive coaching and consulting firm and they have developed techniques that allow leaders and employees to evolve as they interact with each other at work, exploring deeper levels of growth. The book addresses some of the challenges that leaders face, like how to handle conflict, how to face their sense of inadequacy, how to deal with the disturbing feeling of being left out, facing the lack of trust, and more. The book is well-written, well-researched, and it features real-life stories and scenarios that resonate with many readers. This book is a gold mine for anyone who wants to be an effective leader.
