In Rethink Everything...
We walk with Kristi Turner in each season of her career journey through corporate management, as she shares poignant notes to self, illustrating how they influenced her life decisions. As Kristi shows, from the slightest whisper to the most dramatic experiences, life’s micro moments’ drive our soft- and hard-coded belief systems, which in turn inform every choice we make in life and define how we lead.
Kristi weaves together stories of challenges, observations, and lessons learned from her childhood, ballet days, marriage, parenting, and career, to finding herself as the only woman in the corporate boardroom. She offers a fresh lens on pay inequality and the power of diversity. The reader sees how she fits in while still staying authentic to herself and her innate desire to work hard, be thoughtful, take risks, and make a difference. She illustrates the power of pausing, trusting your intuition, and mustering the courage to challenge the status quo, when the status quo just doesn’t make sense. By sharing this honest portrayal of what it means to lead herself while consciously being aware of her sphere of influence—those she interacts with both professionally and personally—she opens our eyes to the value of awareness, authenticity, and accountability.
“Turner speaks to the importance of listening and caring for employees, customers, and ourselves as key elements of leadership. Her lessons and insights are strong examples of what I call, Caring Leadership™, taking daily actions in ways that show concern and kindness to those we lead.”
Heather R. Younger, CEO of Employee Fanatix, Bestselling Author
