Intentional Power: The 6 Essential Leadership Skills for Triple Bottom Line Impact is THE playbook for modern leaders.

Intentional Power: The 6 Essential Leadership Skills for Triple Bottom Line Impact explores how the transition from shareholder capitalism to stakeholder capitalism has created an urgent need for a new model of leadership; a model that enables leaders to navigate competing demands from both internal and external stakeholders including the most racially and age-diverse workforce in history, activist investors, purpose-driven customers, and global government regulators.

Intentional Power argues persuasively for a more inclusive, comprehensive approach to leadership disrupting the conventional approach that has been taught for decades in business books, management courses, and by traditional leaders themselves. It is a guide for delivering triple bottom-line impact: enhancing profits, people, and the planet.

Written by Lisen Stromberg, JeanAnn Nichols, and Corey Jones, three leadership experts who bring a wealth of experience from their decades of working within companies and alongside leaders as advisors, coaches, and corporate consultants, Intentional Power is a call to action for the next generation of leaders to move beyond an entirely individual focus toward a more sustainable approach to lead and succeed.

Deeply researched, the authors draw on an extensive review of the latest literature and insights on leadership development, cognitive and positive psychology, organizational design, and performance management, as well as extensive interviews with leaders across several industries to highlight the most critical skills required by today's executives and managers. They offer a new model of leadership, the HEARTI® model, built on six core competencies: Humility, Empathy, Accountability, Resiliency, Transparency, and Inclusivity. These 6 leadership skills are essential for success in today's new world of work.

You'll also find:

  • A comprehensive, inclusive, and effective approach to leading organizations through the rest of the 21st century
  • Examples from leaders across numerous industries who are driving impact for the teams, the companies, and the world at large
  • Practical "How-To's" and actionable Leader Tool Kit activities to help you learn and apply the skills discussed in the book

An essential and exciting new resource for next-generation and practicing leaders ready to create profitable companies full of meaning and purpose, Intentional Power is the hands-on leadership guide that founders, entrepreneurs, directors, executives, managers, and impact-driven employees everywhere have been waiting for.
