About the Author

Emmy Award winning ABC News journalist and Good Morning America correspondent Adrienne Bankert has seen the power of kindness at work firsthand. Determined to pursue her dreams of being on national TV, she took a chance and landed a Los Angeles reporting job. Her new boss told her it was her reputation for kindness throughout her career that was the key to her being hired. Just a few months later, that opened the door to the biggest break of her life, landing a job at a major TV network. Adrienne is now known for her versatility and ability to connect whether interviewing, anchoring, or in the field. She speaks regularly on the topic of kindness as a key to identity and genuine engagement for living life wholeheartedly.


'Adrienne is a true force of nature; her kindness and glass-half-full perspective are truly inspirational. Whether she is interviewing you or you're just getting a cup of coffee with her, Adrienne's exceptional skill in connecting with people is awe-inspiring. I am very excited that with this book she now shares her superpowers with us all!' --'Shaq' Shaquille O'Neal, Business Mogul, Basketball Hall of Famer, TNT Analyst, Inside the NBA
'An amazing book written by truly one of the nicest people I have ever known. Adrienne does not just write about Your Hidden Superpower, she lives it every single day. If you have ever met Adrienne Bankert, you know exactly what I mean. She lights up the room when she walks in and exudes positivity. This book is exactly what America needs at this exact moment and should be required reading for everyone.' -Jerry Reynolds, Host of the Nationally Syndicated The Car Pro Show
'At a moment when the winner-take-all dynamics of our increasingly superstar-driven economy and society make hyper-competitiveness and self-interest the order of the day, Adrienne Bankert's Your Hidden Superpower is a revelation. This deeply honest and well-written book delves into the author's incredibly rich and culturally diverse stock of corporate and personal experiences to emphatically position kindness not as a weakness, but rather as the force multiplier and blueprint for empathy our organizations, our communities, and our souls so desperately need.' -Christopher H. Smith, Co-Director, Media, Economics and amp; Entrepreneurship, Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism, University of Southern California
'The energy Adrienne brings whenever she shows up in studio and on camera just connects. What she shares in the book is proof positive that you can make the day better for people in your life, and for those you work with--and THAT is powerful.' --Michael Strahan, Good Morning America Co-Anchor and Fox NFL Analyst
'Newsrooms are full of Type A personalities--almost a necessity of the jobs they perform daily. Adrienne, like everyone else in a newsroom, has encountered aggressive behavior from her teammates or managers along the way. Never once over the years, since I met Adrienne before her very first job in Sacramento, has she talked negatively about one person, even when I knew she had reason to dislike their treatment of her personally. Adrienne's faith and care of others is ever-present. She has a lot of patience is an industry where many have a short fuse. Kindness has carried her a long way in a business that isn't always kind. ' -Sandra Connell, President of Media Recruitment and Coaching Firm, Talent Dynamics
