"Taming Your Crocodiles Practices is a personal tool for all leaders and followers looking to master authenticity and find greater purpose in their daily journey. Imagine the opportunity to explore who we are and what we want to accomplish -- without fear. An extension of Hylke Faber's brilliant treatise, Taming Your Crocodiles, this book provides the component tools to unlearn fear-based leadership and practice constructive, creative, and inclusive behaviors with habit-forming frequency and consistency. A must for those ready to move past lip-service to liberation." -- Toni Townes-Whitley, President, US Regulated Industries, Microsoft How do I lead from the depth of who I am rather than from fear-based, conditioned thinking? How do I shift my mindset to accelerate my growth? How do I turn self-discovery and service into a daily habit? How do I inspire others around me to keep growing and giving their best? Hylke Faber explores these and other questions, offering tools for implementing leadership practices into everyday life and work. The exercises in this book -- which can be used both as a standalone guide and as a companion to the Nautilus Silver Award-winning book Taming Your Crocodiles -- will deepen your appreciation for the adventure of life and leadership, help you connect with your true calling, turn your fears into growth practices, and guide you in supporting others on their growth journey. Praise for Taming Your Crocodiles Practices "How do we know ourselves? Practice Hylke's newest book offers us seventy-seven thoughtful and accessible practices toward greater self-discovery, creative expression and ever-expanding potential." -- Chris Ernst, Vice-President, Leadership & Organizational Effectiveness, Workday; author of Boundary Spanning Leadership "Taming Your Crocodiles Practices: Daily Reflections for Leadership Depth is a magical combination of deeply wise insights and specific methods to make these insights a reality in your life. I highly recommend this book for any aspiring leader looking to grow professionally but, more importantly, as a person." --Matt Oppenheimer, CEO, Remitly "With great joy I have read this workbook. And it has pleased me to feel the vulnerability of the author, which opens ways for both the reader and the practitioner. Because of the vulnerability and openness of Hylke, he becomes more of a co-passenger than a coach who tells you how it is. Also, I like the fact that you have a choice of exercises related to your personal needs at every given moment. Hylke really connects to the material, which for me is the essence of personal leadership " -- Wiet de Bruijn, Partner, Delight Group; former CEO VBK Publishers "Hylke scores a home run again. Taming Your Crocodiles Practices: Daily Reflections for Leadership Depth is a unique and easy-to-read, practical book on personal and professional growth. Hylke reinforces key concepts from his first book, continuously taking the reader out of their comfort zone and posing challenging questions on how to think differently. In addition, by providing daily tips, he helps shape positive habits and behaviors, with a growth mindset, all required to be a great leader. I highly recommend his book for any current or future leader, as well as for a reader in search of a purposeful and meaningful life." -- Gioji Okuhara, Board Member & CEO, Brazilian consumer goods companies "Through this simple yet powerful and practical book, I continue to explore my fears, or crocodiles, and go deeper in myself. I connect to that place of peace and of a growth mindset. With my busy life and working with world humanitarian crises, this book helps me to be intentional and to continue to practice my growth mindset and find that place of peace. The more I practice leading with my authentic inner self, the more effectively I am able to support leaders I work with globally. These practices apply universally: across different cultures, countries, and religions. I highly recommend using them, wherever you work and wherever you are from." -- Dr. Valerie Nkamgang Bemo, MD-MPH, Deputy Director, Emergency Response Global Development, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation "A critical part of leadership requires the realization that we must continue to learn and grow. We must find space to tame our fears so we can show our vulnerability, honesty, and share encouragement in an authentic way. I found this space while reading Taming Your Crocodiles Practices: Daily Reflections for Leadership Depth. The concept of the crocodile and the owl is very relatable and easy to integrate into a daily practice. I use this as a reminder to stay on the edge of discovery and wonder, which has opened my eyes to infinite possibilities." --Marci Marra, Partner, Sia Partners "Taming Your Crocodiles Practices underscores an important point that the academic literature on leadership has largely overlooked--to wit, that the first step a would be leader must take in the art of leading an organization is knowing thy self. Once you have your own act together, you can start to lead others." -- Ray Horton, Frank R. Lautenberg Professor of Ethics & Corporate Governance at Columbia Business School "In his new book, Taming Your Crocodiles Practices: Daily Reflections for Leadership Depth, Hylke accurately and thoughtfully captures the fundamental development challenge that all humans face: that is to manage our limbic system and to master our fears so that we can uncover our true, loving nature. The practices in this book help us to lead from our heart's wisdom, rather than from our fear-based conditionings." --AndrewBinding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Hylke FaberPublisher: Ixia PressPublished: 06/17/2020ISBN: 9780486841236Pages: 288Weight: 1.05lbsSize: 8.90h x 6.00w x 0.80d
