About Dr Al Gurg and her fascinating book:
Ranked No 1 on the Forbes Middle East’s Power Businesswoman List 2021, Dr Al Gurg is a former Board Member of the Arab International Women’s Forum and Chairperson and Managing Director at the Easa Saleh Al Gurg Group, an eminent family business in the UAE. As a respected business leader in the region, Al Gurg has defied conventional understandings about women in the Middle East, acknowledging that it was her handling of these all-too-pervasive challenges that ultimately shaped her leadership style and fostered her drive for success.
In The Power of Authenticity, she gives invaluable insight into the lessons she learned first as a secondary school principal before climbing the ladder of a diversified conglomerate that represents businesses ranging from retail to real estate. Turning setbacks into strategies, she shares with readers the tactics and tools that she has gleaned from her illustrious career that will inspire the next generation of business leaders. Perfect for fans of Sheryl Sandberg, Indra Nooyi and Kashmir Maryam, Dr Al Gurg’s lessons, and how they relate to her background and broader business philosophy, are a unique and essential contribution to literature on an increasingly competitive and diverse corporate world. By harnessing the emotional, intellectual, and spiritual energy that resides within each person, Dr Al Gurg explains how a leadership style based on personal authenticity can lead to business success.
