RockStars is the brainchild of Rozaine Cooray and Dr. Pujitha Silva. Pujitha, a Biomedical Engineer and Life Coach, is the author of the P3 GROWTHS Model, which was developed in 2012 and has since been validated in many scientific articles and workshops. Rozaine is an Organizational Psychologist and an author, with two previous publications – ‘From Crisis to Character’ and ‘Colors of the Sun’. Together, the duo has served more than 50 organizations in Sri Lanka, Australia, UK, Malaysia and Abu Dhabi, and has personally coached more than 700 individuals.
Against the backdrop of the Indian Ocean, in the early hours of the morning, are two men who walk on the beach sharing their life stories. Roy, a middle manager from a manufacturing plant, is desperate for answers as he struggles to lead an initiative that threatens the jobs of the managers of the factory. Accompanying him is Ed, a retired medical doctor turned corporate leader, who has managed to save a chain of companies from bankruptcy. Using the human body as a leadership model, Ed narrates stories from his own past to elaborate on the different stages involved in the development of human maturity within organizations. Encapsulated in a moving story of ambition, success, family and loss, is a series of anecdotes that talk about the purpose and fulfillment at work and life as a whole.

Amidst a sea of publications that often over-complicate the purpose and practice of leadership coaching and mentoring, Cooray & Silva present a very perceptive and un-intimidating approach to understanding the essentials of a great leader. Using realistic and relevant examples, they expertly guide the reader through the evidence-based research that sits behind the art and science of authentic leadership. The highly relatable characters in RockStars make it a thoroughly enjoyable read, whilst inspiring the reader to adopt new habits.

The book describes the influence of a role model in shaping a person to handle unchartered areas in day to day professional matters. In many professions, role modelling is almost extinct and it is essential that we develop role models in all areas of society.

An unusual book created by two exceptionally talented people. The synergy makes it a wonderful read.

Rozaine and Pujitha’s effort is a masterpiece of balancing an, often complex and to the average reader, highly technical theory of management.
Executive Director, National Youth Jazz Collective, UK
This book is not only clever in the way that executes its message, but also in the way it’s message is systematic, deep and transformative. When anyone of us arrives in the workplace we come with so much ambition and determination to make the best of our careers, but we also come with a great amount of naivete that we don’t expose. This book allows you to watch someone else going through the journey that you need to go through so that you make the most of your potential and not repeat the mistakes that can come all too easy when your ambition is in full flow. Take time to read it in secret and let it analyse you before you’re told to read it by your boss!
