How to Live with Courage and Become an Everyday Leader

In Step Up, Ash Beckham presents eight pillars to become an everyday leader—Empathy, Responsibility, Courage, Grace, Individuality, Humility, Patience, and Authenticity. For each pillar, she shares engaging stories of her own journey from isolation and anger to a place of greater openness and connection. She then provides eye-opening research on what it takes to build these essential qualities, coupled with practices to mindfully change the way you relate to yourself and the people in your life.

Manifesto  |  Why is Inclusive Leadership so important?

Because the power to change the world is in all of us.
Because ally is a verb, not a noun.
Because leadership is a mindset not a job title.
Because inclusion is a feeling not a data point.
Because everyone has a story.
Because if we can’t laugh we won’t grow.
Because you don’t have to be one of to stand with.
