Woman of Influence: 9 Steps to Build Your Brand, Establish Your Legacy, and Thrive

Woman of Influence: 9 Steps to Build Your Brand, Establish Your Legacy, and Thrive Review

Reinvent yourself as a woman of influence--and be the leader you aspire to be

Have you ever felt like your organization's best-kept secret? Are you the go-to person for work that downplays your potential? Do you want to hone your leadership skills while still staying true to who you are? If you answered yes to any of these questions, or if your reputation as a standout contributor is not translating into career advancement, Woman of Influence is here to help.

Being considered indispensable in your current role won't move your career forward. In fact, it may very well be holding you back. To step into the leadership pipeline, you need to "boss up your brand"--to present yourself as the emerging leader you know you are and ensure others perceive you in that capacity, too.

With more than two decades of experience working with hundreds of thousands of women and clients including eBay, GM, Microsoft, and more, Be Leaderly CEO Jo Miller has the strategies, stories, and research to help women shift their focus from doing to leading. In Woman of Influence, she provides a practical, hands-on roadmap that walks you through nine specific steps to build your brand, establish your legacy, and thrive. Each step is reinforced with self-assessments, inspiring exercises, and checklists that have been road-tested by tens of thousands of professional women.

You'll hear their stories (the good and the bad!) and glean important insights from the 12 most common career missteps even the most streetwise emerging leaders have made--so instead of getting derailed, you'll make the "leaderly move" every time. With this book to guide you, you'll learn how to define your unique leadership niche, create career-defining moments, recruit the five people you need on your squad, and more.
