What does it take to be heard and understood?
Why are we sometimes perceived differently than we intend?
What gets in the way of us expressing ourselves with clarity and confidence?
The people you’ll meet in these pages are trying to grow and be more effective in their work and life. Each of their stories offers specific tools and cogent insights to help readers become more effective leaders. The title— “Into the Wolf”— comes from the Italian expression for good luck: in bocca al lupo or “into the mouth of the wolf.” In each of us is something that we are afraid to face. Throughout Seth’s years of leadership coaching, he’s seen how far many of us will go to avoid communicating with vulnerability, honesty, and clarity. The stories within illustrate how Seth works with his clients to be more self-aware and effective in how they communicate. This book asks us to make friends with our own “wolves:” those fears that keep us locked in habits of passive-aggressiveness, self-doubt, and avoidance. It is an invitation to have the courage to trust yourself and find a more authentic and effective way to be in the world.
