The delightful and charismatic Tevis Trower is a breath of fresh air in the often staid world of leadership development consulting. She is the founder of Balance Integration and focuses on fostering greater humanity and productive relationships at work, supporting sustainable organizational cultures. Her NYC-based team currently serves clients in over 90 sites across the United States, with strategic initiatives in Europe, the Asia Pacific, and Latin America.
Tevis is a brilliant trilingual world traveler and a self-proclaimed hippy chick who earned her way into large organizations’ C-Suites. Her approach finds the connection between self and work, so everyone at all levels of an organization can be their best. She is passionate about teaching executives to increase their influence to build a legacy of lifetime contribution. She offers, “when people are not whole, the work is not whole.”
Her new book, The Game-Changer’s Guide to Radical Success, offers a refreshing approach to getting clear on how you want your life to feel – and making it happen. As leaders reflect on this challenging 2020 and plan for a better 2021, this guide is the booster shot of hope and confidence we all need. In a crisis, it is easy to focus on a power outside of ourselves, such as the recent national election or the corporate higher-ups who are pivoting in response to the pandemic. Her book is an opportunity to get back to your own sense of power – as an antidote for overwhelm and as a counterpoint to any notion of settling.
She was motivated to write this book from her observations of high performing executives who had lost their way ” by playing the game” and losing their sense of authenticity. Here are a few of those observations:
1. High performers have a nagging sense that no matter what they have accomplished, they are capable of more. Often their focus on achieving does not allow for taking the time to reflect on how to navigate choices more powerfully.
2. Revisiting your triumphs, fears, and different ways you found resourcefulness to bring about what you longed for in the past, can move you away from that sense of being smaller to being infinitely more capable in the future.
3. When you find the most profound and deepest truth for guidance, you will be diverted from patterned thinking and sidestep the roadblock of fear.
Her book is a journey back to what is possible when you return to your personal source of inspiration and meaning. Tevis hopes that you when walk away from reading this book that you know deeply who you are is an asset, not a liability. If you’re willing to explore this more deeply with her through this book, you will emerge a more compassionate and confident leader.
Tevis suggests, “We have all been shaken to our core this year, so why not go to your core?” If you want to explore your core with Tevis and her book yourself, she is offering a 10-week chapter-by-chapter Game-Changeapalooza mastermind course starting January 19th.
