This is an incredible performance for any book. Sameer Dua, author of the bestselling book “Declaring Breakdowns”, and now “Become” stated: “The conversational practices in Become are non-discretionary. Leaders need to either learn to have these conversations, or then pay a price for not having these conversations, which is, not delivering results that matter.” Sameer further adds: “Become is an invitation to choose a powerful posture in your leadership and life. You don’t ‘become’ by knowing more. You ‘become’ by shifting your leadership practices, and with respect to leadership, by shifting and creating new conversational practices.”
The book has extremely valuable contributions from Bob Dunham, Founder, Institute for Generative Leadership, USA.
In addition. Umang Bedi, MD (India and South Asia) of Facebook and Sheeja Shaju, Somatic Leader and Coach at Institute for Generative Leadership, India have also contributed to this book.
