I am proud to have provided the SPA experience for her and, as a result, gotten to know and appreciate her. She could be the "poster child" for this program and why I am so pleased that 2/3 of them were women.
She and this book are awesome.
By the way, the flaming e-mail to my group at Kmart was sent by me from Mexico City at a time when I led a highly confidential corporate wide program to try to rescue Kmart from early death throws. I was so disappointed that some of our IT people were not attending training sessions that would help save the company and ultimately their jobs that the idea of "get with us or get out" came to mind...and it still does. Unfortunely, Kmart was bankrupt in less than seven years.

Well written story and framework illustrating the journey and evolution to true Leadership. It provides relate-able insight into how sustaining and admired leaders and leadership is created. I find many bestselling books, by some of the most celebrated authors, mostly provide anecdotal punch lists with little information on how to actually implement and achieve sustainable change or the support needed to achieve excellence. I surmise that this may be intentional in order to continue to sell books - its own cottage industry for authors.
This is one of the first books I purchased where the author personalized her own (and I am sure somewhat painful) experiences which allows the reader to view their own contextual journey while providing a framework and pathway to achieving sustainable and great leadership. It makes evident that excellence in leadership and life is a journey, incremental, and not a destination. It clearly points out that staying the course, having tremendous and unwavering commitment, seeking out strong support and mentors, while fighting through doubts and fears, is what it takes to obtain real Leadership.
Excellent book by an Excellent Leader - Bravo!
There is a complementary workbook available to help with execution. The workbook serves as a living reference and review guide when you need a tweak or two.
