New York Times bestselling author, speaker, and entrepreneur Stedman Graham will discuss his most recent book, Identity Leadership: To Lead Others You Must First Lead Yourself (May 2019, Center Street), on Wednesday, September 18, 2019 from 6 – 7 p.m. at the Museum of the American Revolution. The talk will be followed by a book signing with the author. 

In Identity Leadership, Graham explores how to become a passionate, purposeful, and meaningful leader through identifying who you are, your strengths, and your skills. He examines why self-awareness matters, how leaders lead, and the importance of communication. He then shows the reader how to step into their role as a leader and create their identity leadership plan.

The Nine-Step Process laid out in Identity Leadership includes believing in yourself, knowing your competence, continually challenging yourself, and being patient with yourself. Graham uses anecdotes from his own life, as well as discussing successful leaders like Tom Brady and Sheryl Sandberg to illustrate the importance of identity leadership in each of our lives.

Stedman Graham has built a strong reputation for helping corporations, organizations, and individuals succeed. He is the author of eleven books, including two New York Times bestsellers, and is the Chairman and CEO of S. Graham & Associates, a management and marketing consulting firm. A popular public speaker on the topics of identity and self-awareness, Graham believes in the power of education and positive thinking. The Army veteran and former professional basketball player is now a noted expert in the fields of education and leadership development.
