Professor Margarita Mayo Receives Prize at Business Book Awards

Margarita Mayo has received the Highly Commended award for ‘An Exceptional Book by a Woman 2019’ at the Business Book Awards 2019.

Margarita Mayo, Professor of Leadership at IE Business School, has received the Highly Commended award for ‘An Exceptional Book by a Woman 2019’ at the Business Book Awards 2019 for her book “Yours Truly: Staying authentic in leadership and life” (Bloomsbury 2018).

Yours Truly examines how executives can remain true to themselves – and thus lead effectively – while striving for business success and self-renewal. To demonstrate this core of authentic leadership, Professor Mayo draws on her decades of research and teaching, and a host of inspirational examples from executives of multinational corporations as well as political and sports leaders. In her book, Mayo contends that there are three characteristics – heart, habits and harmony – that differentiate authentic from non-authentic leaders.
