Expansive Impact

An Invitation to Lead in Everyday Moments

“The modern-day leadership playbook for conscious business.”
Jenny Blake, author of Pivot and Free Time:
Lose the Busywork, Love Your Business

As leaders, we face difficult questions each day:

  • What kind of leader do I want to be?
  • How can I stay true to myself, while also meeting the expectations of others?
  • How best can I handle the most challenging leadership situations?
  • How can I accept this uncomfortable and sometimes painful truth: no matter what I do, and no matter how hard I try, someone will likely be upset with my choices and actions?

Expansive Impact helps answer these questions and will empower you to handle the stickiest leadership situations, feel more confident as a leader, and create significant positive change without relying on outside forces or external circumstances. With fresh language, powerful inquiries, and a nuanced exploration of the often opposing tensions we hold as leaders, this book is a compelling and insightful guide to improving your leadership and your life.
