Editorial Reviews

Review

I really enjoyed reading Stepping Stones to Success; I thought I knew how great Kathy Perry is, but the more I learn the more I continue to be impressed. --Brian White

I am so very impressed with Kathy Perry both as a person and as an author. Her information is just SOLID! Watch for her to speak in August 2010 as part of the Holistic Health Mastery Series. --Yvonne Charneskey

I just finished reading Kathy Perry's chapter - Social Media & Self-Empowerment Tools for Success, in Stepping Stones to Success and loved it. I'm so impressed with her expertise. --Liz Becsenesco --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
This is a must-read. As a scholar I found this volume to be both excellent research as well as highly readable. I especially enjoyed the chapters by Dr. Bonnie Howell. Howell is a leader who has excellent insights about spiritual leadership, a new hot topic in the corporate world. All of the chapters are excellent but I would suggest that you buy this volume just to read the chapters by Howell in particular. Would be an excellent reader for a course on leadership or entrepreneurship in a business school.

So many spelling errors and bad punctuation throughout the first 20 pages that I quit reading. I'm serious, there are at least 4 per page. It really bothers me when I have to decipher a book like it's written in another language.

Format: Kindle Edition
This book is a must read. Where else can you get the wisdom and insight of such a distinguished group. In particular the interviews with Dr. Bonnie Howell begin to provide leaders with a new way of thinking about leadership. As a former CEO, Dr. Howell has 23 years of hands on experience and expertise in leading a larger organization. As you read her interviews you will see that her approach was obviously visionary and unique. Her style is one of a conscious and intentional leader and the perspective she shares in this volume is well worth reading. Her contributions along with her co-authors have made this a most valuable volume. Dr. Howell has truly provided some stepping stones to successful leadership and organizations.

Format: Paperback
Stepping Stones to Success was an inspiring read from many different perspectives. Each chapter is an interview with a successful thought leader or entrepreneur. It shares impressive insights from people like Deepak Chopra, Jack Canfield and Denis Waitley.

Not every interview was equal, but 2 really caught my attention. I really enjoyed the chapters with Dr. Mary Donohue and Samy Chong. Both had very different messages and insights, but both were really engaging.

Samy Chong shares his personal story of career development, and ties these insights for how people can live a more purposeful and fulfilled life. I related to Chong's story of entrepreneurship. I really liked how we broke down "the stepping stones to success" as purpose, pain, passion and priorities. It was a very balanced approach, but the inclusion of "pain" and "priorities" provides his approach teeth.

Dr. Mary Donohue's interview was a real treat to read. She is brilliant. She brings forward a model for instituting corporate philanthropy as a tool for leadership development. Dr. Donohue describes her approach as "leading by giving." She brings forward real world examples from companies like Coors, and discusses how organizations use "leading by giving" to build trust, develop their people and maximize results. As a business owner, her message gave me inspiration on how I can grow my business with the power of philanthropy.

These 2 chapters made the book worthy of purchase, and one that I would recommend.
