I used Coaching Yourself to Leadership as the basis for a five session program at the Women's Business Center at Florida Institute of Technology. It was a huge success, the women and one man loved it. I knew when I read your book that it would be a perfect leadership handbook that people could refer to again and again.

Success on Our Own Terms
Success on Our Own Terms tells the stories of 45 extraordinary, ordinary women from Fortune 500 companies who succeeded by working according to their own value systems, their own management styles, and their own definitions of success. The book describes how they navigated corporate corridors, aligned with mentors, used their intuitive skills, developed career strategies, and raised their feminine voices to create new working structures and develop successful careers. Based on her interviews with these managers and on a national survey to which 700 women responded, Virginia O'Brien found that women's definitions of success - with their focus on goals, relationship, contribution and balance - can have a positive influence on organizational systems and create shifts around what it means to succeed.
