Reviews

A must-read for leaders who want to bring out the best in themselves and their people. The robust tools in this book will help you to identify practical ways to drive value and make a significant, meaningful impact -- Heidi K Gardner, author of Smart Collaboration and Distinguished Scholar, Harvard Law School
We need more leaders with gravitas-people who are authentic, humble, and wise. Rebecca is one of a rare breed, a business psychologist as well as a genuine scholar-her book is full of practical wisdom and academic insight on how gravitas can be nurtured -- Alexander Pepper * London School of Economics and Political Science *
For anyone who feels overlooked and underappreciated, Authentic Gravitas dispels the myth that gravitas is inherited rather than deliberatively developed. Newton reframes gravitas as a direct reflection of one's ability and willingness to add value. In an age where it can feel like the loudest voice wins, this book shows that value-add trumps vainglory. -- Jane Mosbacher Morris, founder and CEO of To the Market and author of Buy the Change You Want to See

Authentic gravitas is not about power or position but about how to lead with character and dignity. This book will certainly challenge your thinking and hopefully your behavior, as it has mine. A must-read -- Flip Flippen, New York Times-bestselling author of The Flip Side
Gravitas must be caused by an Agent acting constantly according to certain laws, and Rebecca Newton has found those laws. It doesn't take confidence to matter, but it does take courage -- Seth Godin
Shortly after taking on my first senior leadership position, I was critiqued for needing 'more gravitas.' While I was not precisely sure what this meant, it resonated. The insight in Authentic Gravitas would have given me the permission and pathway to establish it with sincerity and purpose. Twelve years on, I am still on the journey and know that many others are too. How wonderful that we now have a resource, based on evidence and experience, to drive positive results-with gravitas. -- Shanelle Hall, Deputy Executive Director and Assistant Secretary General * UNICEF *

Rebecca dispels the myth of that 'mythical something' that few people seem to possess but we all seek to have: to have weight, value, influence; to catch and keep the attention of others. Delving into what makes gravitas, and the personal beliefs and habits that get in our way of embodying it, Rebecca helps the reader realize that gravitas, which is seemingly innate, spontaneous, and effortless in those who have it, is actually the result of practice and preparation. Rebecca's book is a guide to being who we are, in the best way possible. -- Julie Okada * Duke Corporate Education *

Gardner * author of Smart Collaboration and Distinguished Scholar, Harvard Law School *
Authentic Gravitas gives leaders a practical roadmap to achieve two things: a way to be much more effective in how they communicate; and, at the same time, a way to do this that is true to who they are.
