Who Stands Out and Why

By Rebecca Newton

How do you become a better leader? It's more than just how you act when all eyes are on you during meetings, it's about what you do subtly and behind the scenes, writes Rebecca Newton. In Authentic Gravitas, Newton shares exactly how to build your gravitas.

"People with gravitas 'lead the room,' regardless of their place in the hierarchy; they respect authority but don't wait for a title change to take ownership and make a positive difference," Newton writes. In her book, Newton uses the examples of leaders and professionals to show how and how not to build your gravitas. She concludes each chapter with actionable items. Some of them are straightforward, and some are meant to make you reflect on past behavior.

No matter where you stand in your organization, the advice Newton offers can help you grow and make people take note of you as a leader.
