NEW YORK (July 20, 2021) — Unleashed: Harnessing the Power of Liminal Space by Rick Simmons and Amy Simmons is available now. The book is published with ForbesBooks, the exclusive business book publishing imprint of Forbes, is available on Amazon today.
Rick Simmons and Amy Simmons specialize in creating growth in times of discontinuity for their clients. In their new book, Unleashed: Harnessing the Power of Liminal Space, the duo outlines their philosophy and the strategies they employ at the telos institute to create real transformations for leaders, leadership teams, and entire organizations.
Unleashed is rooted in the belief that transformative change can occur amidst periods of discontinuity – what Rick and Amy call “liminal space.” When harnessed, these liminal spaces have massive potential to help leaders and everyday individuals accomplish things that were previously unimaginable. “Liminal spaces are remarkable catalysts for productive change,” explained Rick Simmons. “It’s just a matter of recognizing them, acknowledging their potential value, and using them to make meaningful progress.”
“But therein lies the rub,” said Amy Simmons. “In the years we’ve spent studying liminal space and its influence on people and organizations, we’ve learned that most people don’t realize they’re at an inflection point; they just know something is out of alignment.”
With Unleashed, Rick Simmons and Amy Simmons unpack exactly why liminal spaces are so ripe with opportunity, share how to best leverage key points of inflection, reveal real-life examples of when liminal space was best managed for transformative results, and provide insight on how readers can thoughtfully trigger and curate these high-leverage moments.
In the end, readers walk away with a new language and framework to enable growth, an action plan to apply liminal space principles immediately, and a deliberate, nuanced mindset about how to optimize any transition.
