Book Spotlight: The Authenticity Code


The Authenticity Code™The Art and Science of Success and Why You Can’t Fake It to Make It combines the best of a page-turner parable and a practical tool business book to deliver encouragement and proven tools for cracking the code to becoming a more authentic professional or leader. When you become more authentic, you do what you came here to do and be who you came here to be. Dr. Sharon teaches in a fun, engaging, and honest parable style, and at the end of each chapter, you apply her practical tools to your own life and career.

With a foreword from Chicken Soup for the Soul coauthor Mark Victor Hansen, The Authenticity Code™ tells the story of a fictional corporate vice president choosing a sales director from two talented protégés. After they present their cases, he realizes that neither of them is impressive enough to qualify. Instead of giving up, the leader sets out to teach his candidates what they need to know via The Authenticity Code™ Program. Like the candidates in the book, you, the reader, will learn to look within yourself and decide who you truly are and what you really want from life and work—and how to go about getting it.


The effectiveness of the tools in this book has been proven over the twenty years Dr. Sharon’s company, Inside-Out Learning, has taught these concepts to their Fortune 500, mid and small-size business clients. Results across thousands of clients include: getting promoted, landing a dream job, significantly increasing sales and revenue, developing confidence and loyalty, greatly enhancing professional, leadership, and communication skills, and improving your personal life. The promotion rate for individuals is 50-80% within a year of completing one of Dr. Sharon’s three to five-day programs. Now you have the opportunity to achieve these exceptional results in an easy-to-read book format.


“This book is packed with solid information that has not been “thought up” in order to simply write a book. It has been “thought through” and proven. For those reasons, it works! I promise you that you will not regret buying this book, reading this book, and learning and applying every single solid tip that it offers. “
