I’m constantly adding books that I’d like to check out to my Good Reads account. You know… when I have time to read. Whenever that is. I love informative and self-help books. One book that recently stood is Women Driven to Success: You Can Have YOUR All. When reading the description, I discovered something that I am so guilty of and in the last few weeks, I actually committed that offense. In this book, Dr. Goldner covers The important difference between taking personal time to stay healthy, and having to take time to be sick. About three weeks ago, I wished that I were sick so I’d have an excuse to do nothing without the guilt. Like being sick was a vacay. Well, I got my wish and was down for about a week and a half, yet I kept trying to do things until I just had to lay down somewhere. I need to take more personal days with no regrets instead of waiting to get sick to be still. I’m looking forward to reading this book. I will MAKE time.
“The ‘real life’ stories and the practical toolkit make this book one that you will want to keep, refer to and recommend to your spheres of influence!” Women today are being told by successful businesswomen that the key to ‘having it all’ is leaning in. Dr. Jane Goldner, on the other hand, believes that success is not a one size fits all concept. She states that women can “have it all,” but poses the question: “What does ‘it all’ really mean?” Throughout the book, Dr. Goldner provides the answer that “it all” is different for each person, and discusses the paths women have taken to go from homemakers to “doing dishes, diapers, and million-dollar deals,” with many choices in-between.
A critical lesson is that before a woman “leans in,” she needs to figure out “her all.” Based on her own life experiences and those of 14 other highly successful senior-level professional women, Women Driven to Success provides examples of role models as well as a tool kit to help women define and live THEIR ALL. Among the many topics that Dr. Goldner covers in her book are: – The need for each woman to define her own CORE, her ‘North Star’ -Why being ‘everything to everybody’ is NOT the answer – Learning the skills of negotiation and confrontation – The important difference between taking personal time to stay healthy, and having to take time to be sick Dr. Goldner is a business consultant with nearly 30 years experience. She’s worked with multiple Fortune 500 companies, the US Military and with some of the foremost executive leaders in the country. In addition, Dr. Goldner is both an adjunct professor at the Coles School of Business Kennesaw State University and in the Leadership and Organization Development Master’s Degree program at PCOM.
