Finally, in rich and abundant detail, a practicing clinical psychologist and executive coach has courageously stepped forward to answer the oft asked question. “But what really happens behind closed doors between the client and the coach?”
Not only does DESTINED TO LEAD provide a wealth of academic material but it is accessible and pragmatic and should also be read by everyone who holds a stake in the development of leaders who possess what Wasylyshyn has characterized as “total brain leadership”, a rare combination of innate strength and emotional intelligence.
DESTINED TO LEAD offers a blueprint for developing the caliber of versatile leaders we will need to compete in our emerging global business environment. Dr. Wasylyshyn’s presentation of these cases demonstrates that these indispensable leadership skills can and should be taught to our emerging leadership candidates.

Destined To Lead conveys to the reader the experience, knowledge and wisdom of one of America's top executive coaches in an invaluable and highly readable book which will be used as a reference for innovative coaching practices for many years to come.
Well, this is the wizard behind the curtain of "Executive Coaching"! She lifts the curtain with creative genius, intelligence, grace and elan. This is a seminal work, a major contribution to a field of inquiry not always populated by serious scholars or practitioners. This work has a brain, demonstrates courage and most of all shows its heart! My advice is don't follow the Yellow Brick Road, but look for the "red string of fate" in the final chapter.
