Aligned: Connecting Your True Self with the Leader You’re Meant to Be

172 pages2 hours


Have you ever felt like you were on a roll? Time slows, and you see everything clearly. You instinctively know what to do, and have the profound feeling that you are on the right path.This is what leadership coach Hortense le Gentil calls alignment: the congruence of who you are and what you think, feel, and love on a fundamental level with what you do, say, and envision for your future. It’s about becoming more of yourself—and transcending the limits you once thought were holding you back. Hortense first experienced alignment as a competitive show-jumper, realized its wider application in her entrepreneurial career, and fine-tuned its message as a leadership executive coach. Now in Aligned, she delivers an essential three-part guide for anyone wanting to lead with ease, joy, and impact—and to become even more successful. Alignment helps organizations reach their full potential, and people realize their personal goals. Alignment does not happen by itself, however. In Aligned, Hortense uses real-life examples to show you how to connect with who you truly are, do the work to become who you want to be, and project your aligned self from your inner world onto the outside one. Told through the personal and professional victories of her clients, revealing case studies, and Hortense’s own journey towards alignment, her book is an inspiring and intuitive approach to a concept as enduring as it is momentous.
