Women Make Great Leaders

Women Make Great Leaders

My new book is about women who have beaten the odds. Early on, they heard the whispers….the inner-call to leadership. They answered, and continue to answer it, with fierce passion—and the courage, boldness and resilience required to rise to the next level and the next, and the next.

They continually polish their talent with a capacity to work really hard, help others succeed, and play the game “fair and honest.” They never lose sight that their purpose is to be kind, generous, and to dare greatly to make the world a better place.

These women are doers and risk takers. They face their fears head-on. When they misstep, they pick themselves up and use the lesson to inform their steps forward. Along the way, they are patient with the ebb and flow of life. Many become devoted wives, partners and mothers while still building careers and influence. They all remain true to their “work” as leaders in the world, carrying it out with the grace, diplomacy and fortitude it requires.

Welcome to the lessons these amazing women teach us.
