New Release: Women Driven to Success: You Can Have YOUR All
Jane S. Goldner, Ph.D. recently released her new book, Women Driven to Success: You Can Have YOUR All. "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.
Her book is available on Amazon.com and the reviews are great! Elaine left the following statement as part of her review, "As a new mom just coming back from maternity leave, this book was very timely for me. It is so helpful to hear Dr. Goldner's perspective on this important topic. It is a hugely personal decision and so helpful to be provided with a toolkit to help define personal expectations. Importantly, this book is comprehensive and without judgment or bias. Because of that, it is accessible for all types of women with different life goals."
C.Mixon said, "I am in my 40s and this book would have been so helpful if I'd read it in my 20s, right when I got out of college. The stories of successful women and how they balance their personal and professional lives was extremely beneficial and insightful. I think if this were taught as a course or workshop where people could engage with others on the same path it would bring even more value. I would definitely recommend reading and keeping this in your career reference library."
