What Costumers Say

Chelsey McQuitty

"After reading this book, I feel that I have some amazing tips to back me up as I work to become the best possible leader that I can be. I feel a lot of the tips offered in this were also based on instincts that I have often pushed down because I felt like maybe they weren’t the right things to do. I plan on going more with my gut now that I have read this book though. Anyone is a leadership position is bound to feel more comfortable in this role after reading this book. You will find the author’s words to be incredible uplifting and helpful while also enjoying the writing style. "

Brian Aird

"Real leadership: Waken to Wisdom by Susan Robertson is a methodical step by step hand book that first of all explains what being real is all about and challenges the reader to take a candid look at their current leadership traits to the point of where they need to be. 

The book is professionally written and may just possibly be a must read for the leaders of today to lead the leadership team and engage in business realism."

Stephen R. Wilson

"A perfect addition to any leader’s library, this book centers on helping you become an authentic leader capable of inspiring others toward a common goal. The book is well-arranged into nine chapters with each chapter introducing you to new leadership traits. Robertson has integrated her professional and personal experiences into the book, making it a realistic read rather than a book based solely on theories and notions."

REAL leaders push off the comfort zone

rather than being defined by it.
