Renie’s newest addition to the aspire…to series inspires people to turn on their motivational switch and play “all in!”

aspire…to shine dares to imagine a world where people truly shine… where their inner light lifts them to their full potential — at work and in life.

Leadership is a behavior, not a position and how you lead — including how you self-lead — reflects how you shine. When we shine, we awaken our potential and in doing so, we naturally shine the light on others so they feel inspired to do the same.

Leaders shine the light so OTHERS may see.


Everything we “aspire” to accomplish as leaders involves people. In her book aspire…to shine, Renie shares her astute observations of what it takes to grow as a person and as a leader through a thoughtful collection of real life stories. The concepts are easily relatable and it behooves us to spend some time in self-reflection to be reminded of not only what we are supposed to do as leaders, but why.
