Interview With Leadership Author Dr. Karyn Gordon



The Three Chairs: How Great Leaders Drive Communication, Performance, and Engagement



1. What motivated you to write your book, to force you from taking an idea or experience and turning it into this book?

I wanted to inspire and equip all levels of leaders - with practical simple framework for understanding confidence - and how that impacts our everyday behavior (communication, relationships, goal-setting, engagement) - and how to become a confident great leader


2. What is it about and who is it for?

Anyone who is interested to build their confidence and develop their leadership skills (students, professionals, managers, team leads, CEO’s) 


3. What takeaways might the reader will be left with after reading it?

They will understand the 3 attitudes of confidence (insecure, confident, arrogant) - how that impacts their everyday behavior - and SIMPLE steps they can do to feel more confident and inspire those around them


Specifically they will learn to...  

Identify great leadership: Understand the most essential attitudes in yourself and other

Master communication: Give and receive feedback to drive team accountability 

Enhance proper goal-setting: Build a confident mindset and alignment on key objectives

Improve decision-making: Drive performance, time management, and delegation

Reduce stress and anxiety: Increase wellness and reduce burnout

Increase employee engagement: Boost retention and build a better culture


4. How did you decide on your book’s title and cover design?

The Three Chairs - is the visual of the 3 attitudes I discuss in the book so I wanted something really easy to see, visualize for readers.  I wanted the cover design to be clean, fresh, simple - red, white & black design


5. What advice or words of wisdom do you have for fellow writers?

Focus on getting it done. Writing is time intensive - and yet - I found the flow came when I blocked big chunks of time to really get into it. 


6. What trends in the book world do you see -- and where do you think the book publishing industry is heading?

Shorter is better. My book is 30-40K words  - and while it seemed ’small’ to me - others said its very trendy - people don’t want a book that feels overwhelming. Smaller books are more digestible.


7. What challenges did you overcome to write this book?

Big chunks of time to write since I had many other commitments to manage.  


8. How would you describe your writing style?

Conversational. Practical. Inspiring -  backed with great research!


9. If people can buy or read one book this week or month, why should it be yours?

It is the BEST book they can read to fully understand themselves and those around them! It will inspire them AND provide practical action steps to build their confidence and leadership skills.
