DescriptionImagine seeing all the thought bubbles that float above real business leaders' heads constantly. The thoughts that are rarely shared, usually censored, but are the raw truth about leading people. And then consider learning solutions to some of the most infuriating frustrations or as we call them, Stupid Human Tricks. That's what this book is about. Meet Micah and all the characters and adventures on their leadership journey. The characters will feel familiar to you. They are imperfect with great strengths and painful flaws. Some learn from their mistakes while others don't. Some succeed and others flame out. But all are perfectly, remarkably, ridiculously human. The Messy Truth About Leading People is told in vignettes and based on true stories. This book is real, it's snarky, it's compassionate...and there's swearing. It's a look at what leadership is. You will walk away knowing that you are not as out of step as you thought you were. You will recognize yourself and others and how f*cking hard it is to lead.

About the Author
Mostly, I am a teacher. I help others learn about themselves and their impact in the world. I'm an observer: of people, of cultures, of interactions. And I'm a wanderer: across ideas and places. My interests are at the intersections of history, anthropology, sociology and psychology.
I'm a story listener and storyteller. People fascinate me and I have a long and interesting career helping people untangle their stories so they are freed up to write new chapters. I've been fortunate to live and work in different places, to immerse myself in different cultures and companies, to learn different languages and ways of seeing the world and to marvel at our collective humanity and zaniness.
