Description

Confidence is the number one growth opportunity for leaders, according to executive and leadership coach Tim Ressmeyer, Ph.D. In this highly practical book, the author integrates insights and experience from his years working in nonprofits, higher education, corporate, and as an entrepreneur running a coaching company. The book uncovers the impact of confidence in seven critical dimensions of a leader's life including leadership, passion, connecting, change, advancement, relationships, and control. The author combines a unique perspective that acknowledges that every leader is also a person, and the intersection of the personal and professional cannot be ignored. Each chapter includes an innovative "Taking Action" section that provokes reflection and actions the reader can take to make the desired improvements. You're being coached to success right through to the very end of the book and beyond!

 

The Impact of Confidence comes to life for the reader with examples of experiences Tim has had with coaching clients at all levels of organizations. Rather than just giving lists of things to do as a leader, the impactful skills and techniques unfold as he describes how they have been applied and brought about success for his clients. The result is an accessible narrative that makes you root for the client, and want to use the skills you just witnessed.

 

The author's personal story is woven into an introduction that details his own successful journey of running a coaching business that was a pivot from his long career as a corporate executive. The transparency he shares of the highs and lows of making such a change helps the reader see him/herself in the realities of uncovering one's passion and having the confidence to step into areas they might have been reluctant to pursue.

 

To help establish a framework for the leader reading the book, the author offers the 4 C's of Leadership as the first chapter. This aligns confidence with the other key leadership components of connecting, competence, and culture. He contends confidence is where it all begins, and it's helpful to see how that aligns with the three other impactful dimensions of leadership.

 

Aspiring and successful leaders rely on cognitive frameworks to make sense of complex organizations, interpersonal relationships, and contexts. Tim Ressmeyer's extensive work as an executive coach helped him to formulate a practical and accessible framework for personal and professional growth in leadership capacity and resilience, built on the principles of confidence, connecting, competence, and culture. Tim's book is rich with stories from his own experience and those of his clients. He offers us a useful framework for building confidence authentically and provides exercises to help the reader apply principles to one's specific situation. It's a quick read filled with wisdom and insight and worth investing the time, whether one is at the beginning of a leadership journey or in search of a new adventure.

Advance Praise

Confidence is a much sought after, yet rarely understood trait. It’s fundamental to success in most of our endeavors. But rarely is a path to becoming more confident laid out so clearly. Tim reveals such a real-world, everyday path, drawing from vast leadership and coaching experience to share the stories of real people as they stepped into their confidence, bringing to life the lessons you too can use.  And, as someone who has spent my career teaching and training coaches, I appreciate how Tim incorporates an educational and application component at the end of each chapter to ensure you will walk away with clear steps and tangible outcomes.

In my journey from corporate marketing executive to international keynoter and consultant, I've faced many challenges, many fears... some successfully and others not so much. What I now know is that each of us has an opportunity to be a great leader, to be the CEO of our lives, to grow and to stretch and achieve dreams beyond our wildest dreams, and Tim's book is the map that charts that journey. Each chapter delivers a critical life-lesson wrapped in a relatable story that will inspire you to action. I was particularly moved by Tim's exploration of self-trust as a means to move forward... a powerful lesson I continue to learn over and over. My life's purpose is to teach people how to generate demand for who they are and what they do, and that can't happen without confidence; this book is officially on my recommended reading list going forward.

As leaders, we employ our knowledge and our relationships to build our organizations. Building, sustaining, and repairing relationships call on us to be aware of our own energy and passions, as well as those amongst the members of the team in which we work. Tim Ressmeyer's coaching has been so valuable to me as a leader in building relationships and helping our team thrive. As I read Tim's book, I see his voice and style come through. This book is an excellent resource for leaders wanting to develop their own skills while managing a host of complex interactions and career transitions.

I am confident that the reader will be blessed, challenged, and affirmed by digging deeply into Tim’s new masterpiece! It is personal, professional, passionate, poking, and provoking. His writing style is such that I felt like I was having a personal conversation with the author himself! Unlike some “Leadership” books, this resource is not just theories, quotes, and “how to’s” for the professional consultant and executive, but is also a practical resource for the parent, the pastor, the educator, and to all others who want to make a difference in this world of today. Thanks, Tim, for the impact your life and writing has had and will continue to have on people like myself, and on so many others. And one more thing: I’d like to add one more “Secret of Success” to your list of Seven – and that is for us readers to tell others about your new book so it will not remain a “Secret” very long!
