Tough Truths

Little books that pack a big punch!

In her mini-book series, Deirdre expertly uses her brand of mild audacity to help people get out of their own way, and get the happiness and leadership success they truly want.

The Tough Truths books offer an alternative to the usual cliché lessons, providing a refreshingly direct approach in just about 100 pages each.

Deirdre’s first Tough Truths book, which focuses on leadership, helps people think twice about what it really takes to be a great leader.

Endorsed by experts like Ken Blanchard, and spread through companies like The Boeing Company and T S Restaurants, the book goes far beyond all of the standard lessons we’ve all heard about leadership, focusing on the truth about our politics, our fears, and the fact that being a great leader means we won’t always be liked very much.

Because of this first book’s success, Deirdre went “mini” again with her Tough Truths book on happiness, available October 2018.

Tough Truths: The Ten Happiness Lessons We Don’t Talk About, delivers the straight scoop on how we get ourselves stuck in all kinds of unhappy ways, and how we can truly find greater happiness once and for all.

Her practical lessons include how happy we can really expect to be at any given moment, and how we can find the courage and power needed to overcome the stories, beliefs and – yes – the hopes that get in the way.

Turns out that Ken Blanchard is a fan of this one as well! Here’s what he had to say:

“Read this captivating little book and let Deirdre’s bold but simple truths about happiness set you on a new path. You’ll be happy you did!” Ken Blanchard, coauthor of The New One Minute Manager® and Servant Leadership in Action
