PRAISE FOR LEAD BEYOND 2030
“Caroline Kennedy has given us so much intelligence, experience and wisdom here. She’s walked the path of executive leadership as a CEO. Grounded in research and practical experience, this book is for every leader who wants to make a real long-lasting difference. An invaluable tool for rethinking leadership and remaining relevant.”
COO, Workwear Group
“Caroline Kennedy takes us on a thought provoking journey to realise that what worked in the past, won't work tomorrow. Transformational leadership is often more about unlearning than learning - her to the point writing style challenges you to cast aside traditional ideas of role models and behaviours. Lead Beyond 2030 is a force multiplier for anyone who doesn't want to get left behind.”
Managing Director, Integral Group
“The business landscape is in a cycle of continuous change, in the last decade, the turbulent conditions have forced leaders to operate at hyper speed with a focus on the short to medium term. Caroline Kennedy provides compelling insights into the criticality of self-examination and self-reflection with tangible examples of the skills that a leader at the helm will need to navigate the chaotic conditions of the 21st century, one that is very self-aware and importantly leads with precision and impact.
For far too long many leaders have shied away from being emotionally intelligent, but the future requires the opposite. Lead Beyond 2030, shares the skills, techniques, processes and the thinking that will dramatically impact our future.”
Chief Executive Officer, SMCT

“As Albert Einstein once said, “we can’t solve our problems with the same thinking, which created them.” Lead Beyond 2030 explores how business leadership is evolving, just like human development, leadership is evolving from a place of mindfulness. Being self aware is key, and it starts with the reflection in the mirror, which needs to be nurtured with regular yet simple self regulation. This book offers an abundance of tools, strategies and practical advice for leaders who want to reach more of their full potential.”
Workplace Relations Advisor, Australian Hotel Association

CEO, You Legal
“Leadership is not about talent, it's a skill, and Lead Beyond 2030 modernises conventional leadership, it lays out the fundamental principles that give leaders the edge to expedite their career and intensify their impact. Everyone will get something out of this book, whether you're an MD leading a multimillion dollar company, or you lead a department, a small team, or just yourself. In this time of economic uncertainty and fierce competition, there has never been a better time to adapt successfully to remain relevant.”
