Giving every capable soul a voice, a new book says an official title has minimal bearing on leadership potential. Entitled “Shine Without Authority: Manifest Your Power Beyond a Title” author, Jeanette Ortegon uses her well-won experience to inspire readers to learn to lead with or without the presence of authority. Turning conflict into independence, critical thinking, and valuable interpersonal skills, Ortegon says leaning into adversity is a useful tool to embrace greater productivity.
Offering case studies and interviews from influential leaders, Ortegon shows the impact on organizations when leadership is poorly implemented and successfully applied. Rising from the ashes of an undermining workplace experience herself, Ortegon said, “This book, as well as my “Speak Inspire Love in Leadership” podcast, will benefit anyone who faces challenges in an untitled position. If you lack authority, I’ll show you how to lead by influence. I promise you; it doesn’t matter if your name is on the door.”
Jeanette Ortegon is a Navy veteran, an author, motivational speaker, and podcast host. Leading diverse teams, through influence, she has served in multiple positions in the military, and the private sector.
