Favorite Authors: Peter Block

This week’s author favorite is Peter Block.

Much of his attraction to me is our shared confidence in the intrinsic value and, I would even say, genius of every individual person.

What any given person has to offer comes from the depths of who they are, not from what has been added to them from outside sources such as schools and seminars and workshops.

While people can be trained in skills, informed of required procedures, and be given aggressive goals to achieve, nothing can replace tapping into and empowering their core passions, values and dreams.

When he writes of professional development, he writes of getting to know yourself and building from the inside out.

When he writes of leadership, he writes of empowering those who work for you.

We are reading one of his books, The Answer to How Is Yes: Acting on What Matters, chapter by chapter in our Thought Leaders Unpacked™ series.
