"This is my kind of leadership book - one that celebrates a truly integrated life, thoughtfully challenges the status quo, and normalizes the conversation around intentional rest. I'm confident that Turner's journey, and the priceless insights she shares, will inspire more leaders to rebel for the change they want to see in their lives, companies, and the world."
- Shelley Paxton, Chief Soul Officer, Rebel Leader, and Bestselling Author of Soulbbatical
One corporate leader's climb to the top while refusing to sacrifice family forcareer and finding her power to lead differently.
In Rethink Everything we walk with Kristi Turner in each season of her career journey through corporate management, as she shares poignant notes to self, illustrating how they influenced her life decisions. As Turner shows, from the slightest whisper to the most dramatic experiences, life's micro moments' drive our soft- and hard-coded belief systems, which in turn inform every choice we make in life and define how we lead ourselves and others.
Turner weaves together stories of challenges, observations, and lessons learned from her childhood, ballet days, marriage, parenting, and career, to finding herself as the only woman in the corporate boardroom. She offers a fresh lens on pay inequality and the power of diversity. The reader sees how she fits in while still staying authentic to herself and her innate desire to work hard, be thoughtful, take risks, and make a difference. She illustrates the power of pausing, trusting your intuition, and mustering the courage to challenge the status quo, when the status quo just doesn't make sense. By sharing this honest portrayal of what it means to lead herself while consciously being aware of her sphere of influence-those she interacts with both professionally and personally-she opens our eyes to the value of awareness, authenticity, and accountability.
With wisdom, generosity, and grace Kristi Turner illustrates how our personal and professional lives can each enhance rather than be detrimental to each other. This idea that we should all pause and rethink everything periodically to check in is a priceless lesson that can benefit every individual, manager, leader, and business.
