Description

Leaders are tired, stressed, and unfulfilled because they are unwittingly trapped in a cycle of inauthenticity.

Inauthenticity is a career-breaking, soul-crushing addiction and it’s time for rehab. In our search to lead others, we have lost the ability to lead ourselves.

This “cycle of inauthenticity” drives leaders to:
* say “Yes” when they should say “No”
* focus on things they can’t control at the expense of things they can
* cover or hide their weaknesses
* avoid difficult conversations that could be beneficial
* hold back their unique perspectives for fear of rocking the boat

Author Michael Brody-Waite shares three simple principles that will allow leaders to break free from an addiction they may not even know they have: inauthenticity. These three principles not only literally saved his life from addiction, but they set him apart as a leader.

When Michael was homeless and addicted to drugs, he was told that if he didn’t master these principles, he would die at the age of 23:
* practice rigorous authenticity
* surrender the outcome
* do uncomfortable work

Armed with these principles and a new lease on life, Michael entered corporate America only to find a dynamic where professionals are conditioned to hide their authentic selves in order to succeed socially, professionally, and financially. This conditioning has infiltrated the way we all see ourselves, relate to our co-workers, friends, family, and how we conduct ourselves at work.

Drawing on his twelve-step recovery Michael unpacks how these three principles saved him from death as an addict and set him apart as a leader and entrepreneur. In Great Leaders Live Like Drug Addicts, he teaches how any leader can master his Authentic Leadership System in order to become more successful in work and life.

Join thousands of leaders who have learned his three principles, master his clear and simple system, and you, too, can become one of the dynamic, growing, and authentic leaders this world desperately needs.
