In this book as in his coaching, Jeff Brunson invites leaders to discover within the resources for authentic leadership. He models this process as he describes it, sharing insights gleaned from “wading the stream of awareness” in his own and others’ experiences.

Jeff’s authentic love and desire for each individual leader to find their own unique flow and confidence clearly shines through in this book. Knowing him for some years as a friend and fellow writer, I can assure you that his desire and intent to become a great listener has been wonderfully achieved and is a gift well applied as he assists individual leaders. The telling of the firsthand stories throughout are a delight to the reader. His words and heart are those of a poet and ring of authentic Jeff Brunson.

You don’t have to be a leader to appreciate the wisdom in this book, you just have to be willing to set aside all your busyness to hear a few stories and to tell a few of your own.
—Susan Bramlett Epps, Ed.D., Assistant Professor
This book is the stream. It glides over the surface, and jumps, and then splashes in your face, flows and then dives deep–very deep. To read this as a book is a mistake, rather, listen to it as you might a stream. The story is for the listener, a beautiful melody. There are so many beautiful spots to wade in this stream that it is hard to leave, even for a moment.
—Dan Roller, Managing Partner, Strategy Execution Advisory
In Wading the Stream of Awareness, Jeff Brunson uses metaphors and stories to outline and develop his unique leadership philosophy. Based on years of practice and research, his theories on how to build confident leadership are sure to help leaders of all kinds, not just corporate managers, find their voice and use that voice to discover their life’s purpose. By building confident leaders, Jeff is changing the way people look at their own leadership potential one individual story at a time. Take it from someone who has walked the path with Jeff, if you are not transformed by his coaching and his writings, then you simply aren’t open to the message he channels.
—Ricardo Gonzalez, Leader, Artist, Facilitator
I hope momentum continues to build as your book is shared with leaders within your ever-expanding following. I look to you as a point of inspiration and take pride in knowing you help others to see their potential. My take away from the book is acceptance and that we must love ourselves without judgment. “You are who you need to be – now.” All my best.
