You are in the middle of everything. You’re a part of the sandwich generation, wedged between aging parents and growing children whose demands keep you constantly on the hop.
At work you are also in the middle. You are a boss. You have a boss. Being in the middle, in the thick of it, dealing with change at home and leading change at work, can be difficult, tedious, and exhausting. It can also be interesting and immensely rewarding.
Gwyn Teatro's In the Thick of It takes you on a journey of awareness, growth, and purpose to help you master the art of leadership that, no matter how many you lead, will pay dividends. Author Gwyn Teatro shows you to how to be the kind of leader that delivers results while valuing every human being, engendering trust and loyalty, and bringing out the best in others.
Author Gwyn Teatro’s lighthearted, humorous, and self-deprecating style delivers lessons in choosing to lead, changing the narrative, and leading with purpose. She cracks the “lack of communication” myth, shows you how to identify pitfalls that get in the way of effective communication, and helps you see through the misleading warm glow of inclusion around the word “team.”
When you’re ready to confront the challenge of change, Teatro’s In the Thick of It provides the map for you to successfully navigate the waters of planned and unplanned change, help your team rise above the challenges in change, and incorporate autonomy, mastery, purpose, innovation, and creativity into your leadership toolkit.

Told from the heart, Gwyn Teatro's narratives are crammed full of insights that will inspire you. Firmly grounded in the reality of the joys and the adversity we all face in our lives, she shows how exercising uplifting leadership will give us meaning in our families, our communities, our workplace, and ultimately in ourselves.
