True leaders are measured by attitude, skill, personality, willingness to serve, and so much more. Many people believe that leaders are born, not made. While it is true that some people are born leaders, some leaders are born in the midst of adversity. Then there are those who become leaders because they see a need that must be filled – they pick up a mantle when no one else has or wants to do so. Regardless of how or why you are a leader, My Turn to Lead helps individuals lead and influence your followers with confidence.
My Turn to Lead will assist you in becoming a well-round leader focused on organizational growth and development as well as one who forms authentic connections with your followers. Leadership starts here!

The chapters in this book were chosen to equip any man or woman who wants to move beyond pain, grief, failure, shame, flaws, or disappointment. It’s time to define your new normal. The old one might not fit the new you.
"I realized if I could live through all that, then I most certainly could live on! I survived my own survival! That was my first step toward saying 'I AM MORE!'" The second installment in the I AM MORE! series, this book tells a story of turbulence and triumph. In the moments after a traumatic event, one is often left feeling as if living on, living past it, is impossible - as if survival is impossible. Surviving Survival allows the reader a glimpse into the life of a woman who reached that very moment several times over. One day she had an awakening - she already survived! She already lived the worst of it. Now, she had to survive survival. She had to learn how to live past the pain. This book deals intimately with the emotions attached to sexual assault, domestic violence, parenting a child with a diagnosed mental illness, single parenting, race, suicide, and of course survival. Her awakening combined with insight from other experts will inspire you on your own journey of surviving survival. This is a story that explores life beyond physical survival but to a place of mental and emotional survival. Dr. Tonisha M. Pinckney is transparent, real, raw in how she confronts and presents her emotions.
“You are no longer a product of your past; you are a facilitator of your future.” This book is a journey of healing and self-awareness. It gives the reader an opportunity to look at life differently, putting the past into proper prospective. The reader will grow from saying proudly “I am me” to proclaiming “I AM MORE. ” The reader has the opportunity to assess and reassess their lives in a way which separates the pains of the past from the events of the past. The reader will be able to look at themselves and find their hidden goals, gifts, dreams, and unacknowledged accomplishments. There is nothing stopping you from becoming “more” except the thought that you are “less.” You are “more.” So, allow the words to echo in your mind heart and spirit – “I AM MORE!”
