“I feel heard and respected by Charley, as she has great compassion and consideration for people. She is the essence of ethical, she brings both her head and her heart to the discussion and Charley focuses on empowering me to change my thinking, resulting in sustained changed behaviours“
Clients who work with me on their leadership and career transformation, frequently use the same words to describe how they feel during my mentoring process: empowered, encouraged and heard. That’s because I recognise that each person’s needs and motivations are different. They are usually high achievers, with busy schedules who are willing to invest in themselves to accelerate their growth, thus having a greater impact on their employees.

“With this book, Charley Swords earns her place as a thought leader. Her book, Dare to Be a Revolutionary Leader: People Are the Solution-Change Your Leadership Style, stands out from the rest on at least several counts. Unlike many other how-to books on leadership, this one successfully unites theory with practice. The reader is walked through a brief history of leadership approaches then is taken in hand and given step-by-step advice on how to broker outstanding leadership in his or her own sphere.”
“A chapter on communication skills offers excellent tips and techniques, including some engaging listening exercises. In Part 2, Swords makes an impassioned case for ‘Know Your Employees’, illustrating a framework that can be implemented for a department or an entire organisation. The text is uniformly clear and easy to digest, with many bulleted lists to enhance readability. Also included are a wealth of exercises, primarily in the form of charts to be completed. A well-constructed, innovative guide to good management.”
“Swords’ manual on transformational leadership will help businesspeople of all levels bring a new level of self-awareness to the workplace and foster a culture of respect. Readers will benefit from her experience, acumen, and humanistic approach to the modern enterprise.”
“Leadership consultant Swords offers sound, practical steps for those who find themselves in a leadership role in their profession, whether by ambition or progression. She provides various methods for self-analysis, always advising that one may not need to change one’s basic traits, only align them with the new trends in corporate leadership. In the past, management was based more on rigid rules. But in today’s rapidly changing technological environment, Swords asserts that managers should concentrate on the people who work for them, understand them, offer them incentives based on their own goals, and help them function as a team, no matter what changes they may face.”
“The book grabs interest from the first, proposing a shift of popular attention from the topic of achieving perfection to that of supporting incremental growth. This paradigm shift is designed to recognize that leadership styles cannot be uniform – after all, leaders and workplace situations are not. Written from a service-oriented, collective perspective, Dare To Be A Revolutionary Leader is a provocative career guide that recommends nurturing respect for one’s employees in order to achieve workplace success.”
