GENTLE POWER IS IN THE BOOKSTORES!
Gentle Power: A Revolution in How We Think, Lead, and Succeed Using the Finnish Art of Sisu!

All too often, we equate force and domination with power, while gentleness and compassion are considered “soft” or “weak.” The destructive nature of this skewed perspective has never been more obvious, yet there is reason to hope.
"With Gentle Power, Lahti shares an illuminating guide to an emerging shift in the way we define true strength―an approach that balances resolve with reason, grit with compassion, and personal success with service to the collective good." - Sounds True
