Best Seller TV, the only show dedicated to covering today’s best-selling business books on C-Suite TV, is announcing a new episode featuring Dawn S. Kirk, author of Heartbeat Leadership: Empower Yourself, Engage Your Team and Impact Your Organization.
Corporate America can be an overwhelming place, and author Dawn S. Kirk decided to write her first solo book to empower those who often feel unheard in meetings. She wanted to ensure no one else felt like she did when they walked into a room because every person has something to offer and has value that can be added to any organization.
Kirk’s 26-year career in corporate America launched her on a quest to better understand what it meant to be a leader and to become the best version of herself. She recounts some experiences in that realm not being as positive as they could’ve been and realized, “The goals I set for myself were greater than the obstacles I was going to face.” This is the impetus for the book – getting out that message of empowerment to as many people as possible.
Kirk says the book is for those already in leadership positions to become better leaders and for those who are not feeling heard. She uses the subtitle, “Empower Yourself” so people know they have a choice to empower themselves in any situation. The book is also for those responsible for larger teams to help them fully engage everyone and tapping into their potential.
She also argues that many organizations have a “heart problem,” where they’re focused on the bottom line more than they are focused on their people. While there’s nothing wrong with profitability, when that comes at the expense of the people, that’s when they have a heart problem. Kirk states, “At the end of the day, the heart of the business are the people that work for you. I truly believe people are your competitive advantage.”
All episodes of Best Seller TV air on C-Suite TV and are hosted by TV personality, Taryn Winter Brill.
Best-selling author, speaker, and former Fortune 100 CMO Jeffrey Hayzlett created Best Seller TV to give top-tier business authors a forum for sharing thought-provoking insights, in-depth business analysis, and their compelling personal narratives.
“People are the cog that keeps your business running. There’s nothing wrong with profits, but they shouldn’t come at the expense of your people,” Hayzlett said. “This episode highlights that principle of leadership and addresses what every leader should do – engage their teams, listen to everyone’s ideas and ensure everyone feels heard and that their ideas will have a direct impact on the overall business goals.”
