Being Lionhearted: Finding Yourself and your Courage Inside  ©
Author: Faith Fuqua-Purvis
Courage comes from many places and many sources – but must come from within to be sustained.  This book is about building courage – from the inside out.  Are you courageous?  I’m working on my Lion’s heart and hope you will join me in deeping your understanding of yourself and finding your place of courage inside.  Content development is well underway and is anticipated to be published through Greenleaf Book Group LLC.  
 
Elephant Whisperer: Strait Talk about Elephants and Change ©
Author: Faith Fuqua-Purvis
There are many times when we have personal or professional issues but are afraid to address them.  This book is designed to help focus attention the metaphorical Elephants that we know are there but no one wants to discuss.  Putting a “name on the monster”, in this case the Elephant, that is causing small or big issues can immediately lessen its impact. Once you name it, the willingness to address the issue allows you to move on, instead of staying stuck.
 
The book talks about the truth of what it takes to change a company, to change a culture, to change yourself.  About the hidden motivations, desires, and competing priorities that get in the way.  About the things we collectively often know, but are unwilling to talk about during major transformations.  
 
Own Your Elephant: Straight Talk about Understanding Yourself ©
Author: Faith Fuqua-Purvis
This book is designed to help you take the metaphorical mirror and really look at yourself, not just outside, but inside.  By self-awareness and attention to your personal Elephant (or Herd of Elephants) you can understand how your Elephant(s) affect relationships, your interaction style, and your decision making approach.  It can help you to be realistic about both situations and outcomes.
 
By understanding you own Elephants, you will be much better at understanding which sandboxes to play in and which to simply pass by.  Understanding this can lead you to a more satisfying and less stressful life.

“The immediate mental image that springs to mind when I think of Faith is that of the elephant whisperer, and of herds of elephants.  
Faith is a highly intelligent clear communicator, who reaches, influences and encourages many, an authority on perception.  She is not afraid to talk about truths and uncover the back story.  She seeks to build, inspire and lead wherever she speaks of courage.
 
Faith has a rare mix of abilities, probably not found on the Myers-Briggs scales.”
