A Quick And Easy Guide To Leading with Brain, Heart & Soul
This book is the result of an experiment conducted in April 2023 with the support of ChatGPT. The experiment was based on three simple premises: 1) to write a book, 2) to document the process through at least three posts per week on LinkedIn, and 3) to ask for feedback twice during the month.
The result is a book that reveals facilitation as the missing link for leadership. On the way to that key insight, the book takes you through a journey of valuable leadership concepts, stories, and quotes to inspire and deepen your own leadership journey and enable you to lead yourself, others and entire organizations and systems. It’s like an appetizer plate of key frameworks and ideas to help leaders navigate the complex world we live in.

I am so glad that Andres has chosen to share his journey including the self-doubts, and struggles as well as how he grew through those challenges. As a result of his life experiences and his skills of introspection and self-awareness, he has become adept at helping others to grow through realization of their inner conflicts and to summon the courage to move beyond the restrictive comfort zones imposed by our false notions of “strong leadership” and, thus, develop the kind of integrity which serves as their foundation for the kind of authentic courageous leadership which is so needed.”
