“The conversational practices in ‘Become’ are non-discretionary. Leaders need to either learn to have these conversations or then pay a price for not having these conversations, which is, not delivering results that matter...Become is an invitation to choose a powerful posture in your leadership and life. You don’t ‘become’ by knowing more. You ‘become’ by shifting your leadership practices, and with respect to leadership, by shifting and creating new conversational practices”, says bestselling author Sameer Dua, whose just-released book ‘Become: The 5 Critical Conversational Practices that Shift ‘Who You Be’ as a Leader’ has broken all sorts of records.

The book on launch became Number 1 Amazon Bestseller in Business Communication as also…1 Amazon Bestseller in Economics Text Books; 1 Amazon Hot New Release in Business Communication; 1 Amazon Hot New Release in Economics;  1 Amazon Movers and Shakers; Bestseller Badge by Amazon within the first 6 hours of being released and  33 Overall in the Kindle Rank.

In addition, it won many accolades from fellow bestselling authors. Says Judith E. Glaser, Author of the bestselling book “Conversational Intelligence”, “Sameer Dua’s passion to help us see our conversational blindspots is evident in his in-the-face writing style.” Adds Robert Hargrove, Author of bestselling book, “Masterful Coaching”, “Become” grabbed me by the eyeballs. Leaders at all levels need to put on the coach’s hat to bring out the best in their teams.”

Professor Andrew St. George, Author, Navy Way of Leadership believes that Sameer Dua has “combined intellect with practice, insight with action, and depth of thought with ease of reading. The result is a powerful and inspiring book.” Charles Feltman, Author of the bestselling book ‘Thin Book of Trust’ said “Become is a potent guide to the being and doing of exceptional leadership. Reading Become, itself, is a long, engaging and transforming experience.”

Similar praise was bestowed on the book by industry leaders. Says Klaus Trescher, MD and CEO, Seimens Technology and Services “This book will open up the eyes and mindset of every reader.” Adds Ashok Soota, Executive Chairman, Happiest Minds Technologies “Become delivers beautifully on its promise of enabling leaders and managers to generate meaningful results.”

Incidentally, The book has extremely valuable contributions from Bob Dunham, Founder, Institute for Generative Leadership, USA.  In addition. Umang Bedi, MD (India and South Asia) of Facebook and Sheeja Shaju, Somatic Leader and Coach at Institute for Generative Leadership, India have also contributed to this book.

The foreword for “Become” has been written by Marshall Goldsmith, the #1 Executive Coach and #1 Business Thinker in the world. This is what Marshall Goldsmith has to say about Become in his foreword: “This is Powerful stuff. I suggest you try it for the sake of your colleagues, family, friends, and yourself”.

The 336 pages book, published by Harper Business, an imprint of Harper Collins, is priced at Rs.395 and is available on amongst other digital and physical retailers.

Sameer Dua’s earlier book “Declaring Breakdowns” was also a bestseller and now he has begun working on his third book in the area of generative leadership, and his third book will be released by the end of 2018.
