"Your Shadow Is Your Strength"
The Power of Embracing the Hidden Sides Within You in Your Leadership

This book is written for those who, in some way or another, lead others or who want to take ownership of their own lives. It tells the story of your most important yet complex relationship: the one between your best self and the person you don't want to be or dare to be, your so-called shadow side. Your Shadow Is Your Strength describes a personal battle between these inner polar opposites that you might not even be aware of but that controls you at work, at home and while traveling in between - without your consent.

 

Spend some time with this delightful little book. Although it arises from years of experience and recent academic research, you will not yawn and put it down in five minutes. Instead, you will find yourself drawn into a pleasant ad- venture with a rich treasure at the end: your own true Self.

We need to learn to live with the shadow and hopefully find some gold in its darkness, that provide us with new energy and new ideas. This is a difficult experience and we will need a guide if we are to make the journey successfully. Ann Askenberger has provided that guide. She has made the shadow acces- sible through a modern fairy tale. If you want to begin to come to terms with your shadow, then this is a great place to start.

- Laurence Barrett, Author of A Jungian Approach to Coaching

 


Words from the Author:
Almost two decades ago, I read Debbie Ford's book about the shadow. It changed the way I looked at myself and others, at our merits and shortcomings. And it gradually influenced the way I viewed leadership development.
I have met many capable and ambitious managers who still find it difficult to get to the bottom of their leadership. And I don't think I've met a leader who doesn't wrestle with the opposite side of their best self. What we don't want to be, is there too - together with all the good qualities we have and so want to emphasize.
The shadow is both simple and difficult to understand. Simple, because it includes everything you don't want to be or think you have to be in order to get accepted. Difficult, because it describes something that most people are not even aware of, and instinctively avoid.
Imagine if more leaders could accept their shadow side! Helping others to see their whole selves has become my drive, mission and passion. In recent years, I have chosen to delve into the theories of how we humans are influenced by the subconscious and unconscious. I have also had the opportunity to test my idea on how to connect the timeless psychological principles with modern leadership in a simple and playful way. In the last year alone, I have worked with over 200 leaders, 130 of whom I have coached individually.
Now my own book on the shadow is here. It is written to give a language for all the different sides a person carries.
My hope is that leaders - and anyone who wants to take greater leadership over their lives - will dare to use more sides of themselves to better contribute to the contexts they are in. In the process, they may gain a kinder approach towards themselves.
It will be interesting to hear how my unconventional interpretation of Jung's classic shadow concept will be received.

/Ann
