First published in 1995, Terry Pearce’s book on authentic leadership communication is a classic in the field. However, the world has changed significantly since the first edition of Leading Out Loud went to press. Now, the scrutiny of the media and a populace empowered with infinite sources of information combined to make leadership communication more important than ever. In today’s world, the internal development of the leader the message itself and the delivery of that message are all critical to success. In this third edition of his best-selling book, Terry Pearce expands on the internal work necessary to create and communicate about change in a way that inspires commitment.

As in the first two editions, Pearce broadens the application of core principles and puts the spotlight on every day, spontaneous communication. Illustrative fresh examples cover the range of today’s multi–faceted communications and reveal how to apply Pearce’s sage advice for becoming an inspirational communicator. In addition, Leading Out Loud includes new information on the neuroscience of empathy and response that reveals the possibility of developing the characteristics, traits, skills, and perspectives for mastering leadership communication. Throughout the book, Pearce gives advice for developing a Personal Leadership Communication Guide that can support any venue, through any media, and in multiple cultures.

This new, completely revised and updated edition offers information, stories, and experiences that clearly show the successful application of the authentic leadership communication model. Leaders at all levels who want to inspire positive change will benefit from Pearce’s wisdom.
