AUTHENTIC CHANGE

STARTS WITH YOU

Every day, when people and culture leaders fail to inspire others to do their best, progress stalls. Authenticity in the workplace builds trust, strengthens teamwork, improves outcomes, and sustains performance. My purpose is to help you to get there and to prosper.

 

Integrity by Design: Working and Living Authentically

If you or your organization lacks integrity, you’re out of alignment with what’s important. When work and life are out of alignment, it’s difficult to improve teams and organizations.

Life doesn’t work well without integrity. Authentic approaches to getting the best of others and our organizations requires integrity.

When authentic leadership isn’t present, managers squander business opportunities and waste potential.

In these poorly designed organizations, people and culture leaders fail to excite, engage or empower others to attain or to sustain extraordinary performance.

Integrity by Design: Working and Living Authentically provides a blueprint for authentic leadership and change in organizations. Every possibility for prosperity begins with a life designed with integrity.

Mike Horne brings first-hand experience and fresh approaches based on a career as a global leader designing great workplaces and developing extraordinary leadership talent. This book brings you closer to the ultimate pathways contributing to personal and organizational success.
