About the Book

If you’re the first person in your family, community or organization who wants to achieve something, then you’re a trailblazer.
But how can you lead effectively, and what missteps can you avoid to make your journey as smooth and rewarding as possible?
Maria Asuelimen, the founder of AMA Consulting, reveals how to lead authentically in this guide for pioneers. Learn how to:
· gain confidence as a leader;
· build trust with others and help them succeed;
· overcome common leadership struggles;
· grow and develop as you walk your leadership journey.
The book is divided into three parts: leading yourself, leading people, and leading in an organization. It explores concepts like identity, self-awareness, leadership presence, relationship management, team collaboration, crisis management, and organizational culture.
Written by an author who is an “other” in every sense—a woman of color, immigrant, CEO, and mother of four—this leadership guide invites trailblazers to step forward and reach their maximum potential.
