Praise for this book
"A Tremendously Engaging Read! AmyK reveals the fears and foibles we all face, sparking readers to reflect on our own Leadership Journey."Marshall Goldsmith-New York Times Best-Selling Author of Triggers"Every decade or so, a new author emerges onto the scene with such groundbreaking insight and perspective that it changes the narrative about what it takes to achieve success in business and life. In the 90's, it was Drucker and Maxwell. In the early 2000's, it was Gladwell and Lencioni. Now, AmyK Hutchens joins these ranks. Although she would blush at this comparison to these iconic thought leaders, the fact is that this former executive of a billion-dollar global company, and recently voted International Speaker of the Year, has become a powerful force for change that is in demand world-wide."Rob Hayes CEO And Chairman, Triton Management Services, LLC and Two Jinn, Inc.2015 EY Entrepreneur Of The Year Award Winner"I was thrilled to see AmyK's energy and inspiration jump off the first page of the book. I burst out laughing during the very first paragraph about Derek, the serial entrepreneur. She nailed it! AmyK has never pulled any punches and she isn't going to start now. She sees right through our personas and knows what makes us tick, what makes us thrive and what holds us back. AmyK is a brilliant educator who has taught our leadership team to define our values, leverage our talents and execute on our vision for the company. In Secrets she reveals her insight into leaders like us-our vulnerabilities, insecurities and strengths-then shares her questions that challenge us to become the best version of ourselves. It helps me see how AmyK understands us, the real life leaders that she coaches, and sees us for who we really are-embracing our vulnerabilities as much as she embraces our talent. I am thrilled to have this new source of AmyK's brilliance and humor at my fingertips."Ali Flint, Chief Financial Officer, interRel Consulting"AmyK captures brilliant, colorful, 3-D snap-shots of leaders' complex business and personal lives. She shines such a creative, bright light on our fumbling human attempts to attain self-actualization, that I was hooked from the first story. Secrets is a fun, insightful way to learn about ourselves, and a must read for leaders!"Eric Greenwald, President And Chief Operating Officer, Grimaldi's Pizzeria
