This week I sat down with my friend Priscilla Douglas to discuss her new book Woke Leadership: Profits, Prophets and Purpose. 

Priscilla believes that great leadership doesn’t just inspire. It inspires action. Action that advances careers, transforms organizations, makes a lasting impact, and changes society for the better.

Coaching and consulting to leaders around the globe, action catalyst Priscilla H. Douglas engages and energizes audiences, driving collaboration, contribution and innovative ideas. Drawing from her decades-long career as an executive in government, academia, and business, she shares her unique, holistic perspective on the challenges of today. A true trailblazer, Priscilla ignites conversations and sparks transformation across all types of organizations and industries.

It was a fun and enlightening conversation, and her book is a fabulous and uplifting read. We need more “woke” leaders like Priscilla Douglas.
