”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 travelling 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.
