I had the pleasure of serving with Tricia on an executive leadership team during a challenging time at our company. I watched her come onto a team faced with very tough choices and bring humanity, empathy and, importantly, the business case for never losing sight of the criticality of the human side of leadership. I learned from watching Tricia influence decisions, deliver results and grow and keep high performing teams that my notion of what successful leadership meant was missing a focus on the “heart” needed to elevate a leader from effective to inspirational. I now draw daily off of Tricia’s actions and counsel in leading my teams and I and my teams are all the better for it. I am thrilled that she has chosen to write this book to share her special wisdom with other leaders so many can benefit from her leadership legacy.

“Authentic, inspiring, empowering, brave”…this is Tricia Manning. I know this firsthand from my more than 10 years as an executive member of her leadership team. It is a rare and unique opportunity to be led by someone with Tricia’s heart and unparalleled belief that when you take care of the people, when you encourage and enable them to be the best version of themselves, they will, in turn, take care of the business, the clients, and each other. It is from that belief that Tricia developed her leadership style and values. Her unwavering commitment to be her true authentic self created a culture of transparency, trust, and confidence to lead with heart. Not only did Tricia leave a legacy at Catalina, but that legacy continues to spread through the executive leadership coaching she is doing today. To have the opportunity to be coached and mentored by Tricia is a gift that will have immeasurable impact on the people and businesses she serves.
