Leadership to Heartship

Betty encourages readers and potential leaders to embrace their vulnerabilities by developing deeper authentic human connections with their teams. She also puts emphasis on the need to identify one’s core values
and live them out in real-life working environments.

An inspirational guidebook that showcases the ways leaders can get the best out of their endeavors, Your Emergence From Leadership To Heartship is a must-read for anyone who works in any leadership position.

Betty’s book encourages us to raise the bar on standard leadership protocols by guiding us toward Heartship where everyone is embraced for their uniqueness without judgement. The ability for leaders to improve their soft skills while remaining focused on goals and objectives will enhance their relationships resulting in greater support and participation. Elevating the concept of Heartship where everyone lives in balance, from the heart, while respecting social protocols and individual values is inspiring. This approach will certainly improve everyone’s personal and interpersonal skills and wellbeing.

Your Emergence from Leadership to Heartship is a gentle call from a dear friend to consider the possibilities of living life trusting your innate self. An invitation to stand strong in your truth and power. It is as much a testimonial of the love of a mother for her son as it is an opening for the what if’s? Water Isle held me fast. Reflecting the limitless power of nature, the call for community, the demand for integrity and skill, knowing your limits and when to ask for help. Betty has shared her ‘path to Heartship’ with us in an initial brief offering. I truly look forward to more stories from her personal journey.

We can achieve our ultimate potential—our best version of ourselves—when we collaborate at a deeper level in a real way. Heartship is the connection, the trust and the knowingness that allows us to fully step into the possibilities of what we can create together while having each other’s back.
