Authentic Gravitas: Who Stands Out and Why

By Rebecca Newton
Have a powerful impact--by being more like yourself rather than less, through this groundbreaking approach taught at the London School of Economics and companies worldwide.

Organizational psychologist and executive coach Rebecca Newton has found that even her most successful clients still want more of one quality: gravitas. They want their words to carry weight, to have a positive, lasting impact on those around them.

Gravitas can seem like an elusive, intangible quality, but it isn't about adopting the style of another or being someone you're not. Newton draws on extensive research and experience coaching business leaders to show what underpins authentic gravitas and how anyone can develop it. She presents the counterintuitive idea that in order to be valued, we shouldn't spend all our time and energy trying to stand out from the crowd; instead, we should focus on the crowd--connecting with others and understanding their needs in order to make a significant difference.

Newton debunks the myths of gravitas and gives readers the practical tools to develop it by:
* Minimizing the gaps between intention, action, and impact
* Remaining true to yourself while adapting to work successfully with people who have different styles
* Choosing to be courageous regardless of how confident you feel--as you engage in courageous behaviors, confidence naturally builds

Authentic gravitas extends beyond commanding presence in the room during a key meeting; it's about the small things you can do beforehand, during, and in all the spaces in between--to be someone who genuinely adds substantive value in the workplace and beyond.
