What does it mean to be authentic? How can leaders increase others’ trust in their leadership? Based on his doctoral research and decades of coaching corporate leaders, author Patrick Donahue PhD cracks the code on how leaders can build trust through authenticity in The Power of Genuine Leadership: How Authentic Leaders Earn Trust, the third volume in the Logos Institute Best Practices Series.
One of Patrick’s most valuable contributions in this book is the Authenticity Trust Model. The Model shows readers how to enhance one’s leadership capacity by understanding the relationship among behavioral consistency, authenticity, and trust. “It can take a lifetime to earn a reputation of being a great leader, which is earned through consistent behavior over time,” says the author. “This book makes a complicated concept easier to digest through models, stories, assessments, and applicable tools.” The book is available both in paperback and Kindle editions.

Five Frequencies: Leadership Signals that Turn Culture into Competitive Advantage is about organizational culture, which can be either an asset or a liability. At this very moment, it’s either lifting business performance or “eating strategy for breakfast. How can leaders ensure it’s the former, not the latter? Based on the authors’ 20+ years of research and experience, the answer couldn’t be clearer: Intentionally or unintentionally, leaders create culture through the signals they transmit through five key leadership behaviors. These behaviors are the Five Frequencies.
To make a bad culture good, or a good culture great, leaders have got to deliberately transmit strong and steady signals. This book shows readers how. Fast-paced and loaded with real-life examples, Five Frequencies prescribes more than 20 practical Signal Boosts for turning culture into competitive advantage.
The authors are principals at strategic communication firm MGStrategy, based in Philadelphia where they specialize in internal communication and culture change. Order your copy today by clicking here.

This book is about how leaders and the organizations they lead can maintain reputation, trust, confidence, financial and operational strength, and competitive advantage in a crisis. First, by thinking clearly; second, by making smart choices; and third, by executing those choices effectively. But making smart choices in a crisis can be agonizing.
The difference between leaders who handle crises well and those who handle crises poorly is mental readiness: the ability some leaders exhibit that allows them to make smart choices quickly in a crisis. And this ability creates real competitive advantage.
In June, 2018, The Agony of Decision was recognized as one of the “51 Best Crisis Management Books of All Time” by Book Authority, the leading resource for nonfiction book recommendations. The book also received a badge of recognition for being one of the “8 Best New Crisis Management Books”. The Agony of Decision has the distinction of being the highest rated book on the list.
