Karlin Sloan shows leaders of today and tomorrow how to make decisions based on hope and purpose, rather than out of fear in “Unfear: Facing Change in an Era of Uncertainty”

CHICAGO (MMD Newswire) January 31, 2011 — People across the U.S. live in fear of unemployment, the unpredictable economy and the threat of terrorism, and author, CEO and leadership development expert Karlin Sloan addresses how to combat these worries in “Unfear: Facing Change in an Era of Uncertainty”
(ISBN 1452885850).

As a consultant, Sloan speaks with powerful corporate leaders every day, and over the years has seen that many of the people she works with are in fear.
The emotion can be deeply destructive to the individual, the author argues, and the book offers business leaders ways to make decisions out of hope and purpose, rather than out of fear.

Sloan speaks directly to organizational leaders and managers, since these high-ranking figures are faced with rapid changes in their professional and personal lives while being held accountable for teams working with fewer resources. Graduate and executive education students will also find guidance here, as more are earning master’s degrees in business administration.

“Many of the assertive, intelligent people I come into contact with are letting fear cripple their decision-making skills,” says Sloan. “I wanted to write a book that provides them with useful tools to reduce fear-based behaviors, to inspire performance, and to align their team or greater organization around a larger purpose.”

Sloan offers clear, effective and practical strategies that enhance teamwork and leadership effectiveness regardless of economic uncertainty. After all, if the leaders of today continue to live in a state of fear, they’ll hinder their own opportunities to prosper tomorrow.

“Unfear: Facing Change in an Era of Uncertainty” is available for sale online at Amazon.com and other channels.
