STEDMAN GRAHAM’S BOOK
‘IDENTITY LEADERSHIP’ RELEASES MAY 7
‘Identity Leadership’s’ Nine-Step Process Creates
the Self-Actualization Essential to a Life of Purpose and Direction
“To Lead Others You Must First Lead Yourself”
NEW YORK – April 30, 2019 – Author, speaker and entrepreneur Stedman Graham’s new book IDENTITY LEADERSHIP releases May 7 with its Nine-Step Process for developing self- leadership and self-actualization necessary to be an effective leader in today’s rapidly changing world.
“Identity Leadership is self-leadership based on the philosophy that you cannot lead others until you first lead yourself,” Graham said. “Before deciding what to do in life, you must first understand who you are, what influences your life and why you think and act the way you do.”
IDENTITY LEADERSHIP is important in this time of great technological and social change where traditional family values are being reshaped, globalization threatens jobs, climate change threatens the planet and the exponential acceleration of technology is leaving many behind the competition.
“To become a leader in the 21st century means mastering the process of self-leadership,” Stedman said. “I call this process Identity Leadership.”

“For more than 30 years, I have been writing books, teaching in colleges, working in communities, leading nonprofits and conducting workshops around the world,” Graham said. “In all that time, I have come to know one thing: leadership is everything.”
Facts bear that out. Gallup estimates that American businesses lose $350 to $400 billion a year because 70 percent of the U.S. workforce is disengaged and not working at their full potential. Additional research indicates 25 percent of all college graduates in the U.S. fail to thrive in their overall careers and lives because they are unprepared emotionally and experientially for the real world.
In Stedman’s IDENTITY LEADERSHIP, readers learn how to organize their life, self-actualize their potential, find purpose, work with passion and improve their performance through this nine-step process:
The benefits of Identity Leadership also go beyond leadership skills to touch every aspect of professional and personal life.
“Becoming an Identity Leader provides a foundation for growth and creates a self-directed learning process,” Graham said. “It leads to work life balance, helps to develop strong relationships, develops performance improvement and improves time management.”
The chairman and CEO of S. Graham & Associates, a management and marketing consulting firm, and the author of 11 books, including two New York Times best-sellers, Graham has cultivated a reputation for helping organizations and businesses make changes for greater success. A popular public speaker on the topics of identity and self-awareness, Graham believes in the power of education and positive thinking and his own life is indicative of this philosophy. The Army veteran and former professional basketball player—a career he says largely defined him for many years—is now a noted expert in the fields of education and leadership development.
