After Facing Mortality, Breast Cancer Survivor Shares the Necessary Tools for Self-Awareness and Authenticity in New Guidebook

Author Pamela Bond emphasizes the importance of a balanced mind, body and soul in ‘The Authenticity Compass’

“The Authenticity Compass: Essential Guidance for Sustainable Success” by Pamela Bond is a life-navigational tool the author developed to support the self-awareness required to be authentic. Bond wrote this self-assessment guidance to help individuals be true to themselves and those with whom they interact. It is based on her own journey of self-awareness and her business experience. Given the upheaval in lives caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, and other global threats to humanity, she sees the “Authenticity Compass” proving especially helpful to individuals as well as corporate leaders and business owners.

Bond’s journey of self-awareness began at the age of fourteen when her mother died, leaving her questioning who she would be in life without maternal guidance. When she was at the height of her career as the VP of Customer Experience at Fidelity Investments, a leadership position with oversight responsibility for monitoring interactions between customers, employees, and the company’s products and business processes, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Her battle with cancer caused her to reflect upon the guidance she would be leaving her own children should she not survive.

“’The Authenticity Compass’ represents evidence-based knowledge every person should have about how the brain works and how sustainable success is achieved,” said Bond. “We all have an authenticity compass, but self-awareness and accountability are pre-requisites for accessing and using it.”

Facing her own mortality inspired her to write “The Authenticity Compass.” Now a cancer survivor with rheumatoid arthritis, Bond is committed to promoting the best in humanity by helping others understand their truth, leverage their strengths and work towards the creation of a healthy and safe world. For anyone who has ever pondered, ‘What is my purpose?’ and is open to developing the self-awareness needed to be authentic, then Bond’s book is the perfect guide to help them discover their path to sustainable success.
