The Promises of Giants
Nicholas Brealey Publishing, 2021
Workplaces need giants – savvy leaders with the power and drive to inspire, lift up and embolden others.
John Amaechi OBE is an organizational psychologist and the first Briton to have a career in the National Basketball Association. He is aware of the effect his height has on others and adapts his behavior to counter the inevitable stereotypes. He regards everyone as a giant in his or her own right, regardless of size or status. As a giant, he says, you should be aware of the impact of your words and behavior, and be intentional in your conduct. Amaechi offers a framework for living and acting as a giant.
