Publisher's Summary

In a society that pushes conformity, how can you courageously choose to be who you really are - with yourself, in your relationships, and at work - despite the fear of judgment? 

In The Authenticity Principle, award-winning leadership and diversity expert Ritu Bhasin gives you the tools to make this happen. Combining the latest neuroscience, leadership, diversity, and mindfulness research with a wealth of practical exercises, Bhasin unveils a cutting-edge framework for living and leading more authentically. She also reveals inspiring insights from a range of leaders who have overcome barriers to being authentic - including her own personal journey from lawyer to entrepreneur.

Developed after years of working with global leaders and organizations, the book has at its core the transformational concept of the "Three Selves '. This new way of understanding authenticity will empower you to fearlessly and strategically choose how and when to show up as your authentic self and your adapted self, leaving behind your performing self.

Ritu Bhasin shows that choosing to live authentically is the most important step you can take to thrive in your personal life, your relationships, and your career. More than just a call to “be yourself”, The Authenticity Principle is a rallying cry to disrupt the status quo, bring your differences into the light, and help others do the same.

Useful information mixed with obvious prejudices

The author offers many useful insights and methods to promote authenticity. Although every single example illustrated in the book involves the stereotypical white male racist perpetrators. When will we as a society get passed the idea that all people can be racists and demonstrate prejudices, and that white people, even straight white males experience racism?

The author would make an even more compelling case if she the examples were rewritten with a more inclusive perspective that did not alienate some groups.

A must-read for finding true authenticity!

I loved the story, narration, and flow of this experience! Subjects and ideas were made plain and simple, which made learning natural and effortless. I suggest this book for anyone interested in doing the real "heart"work of getting authentic in life!
