Would you like to discover your most authentic, powerful leadership self and define success based on your own terms?
When women readers finish Embracing Your Power, they will feel confident, supported, and seen. They will think I am enough; I’ve got this. Focusing on greater self-awareness as a woman, a leader, and as a powerful and authentic woman leader, Marsha Clark also explores interpersonal relationships based on a foundation of mutual trust, setting and maintaining boundaries, and managing conflict.
Embracing Your Power is a leadership book targeted to professionally minded women across all sectors. Women in for-profit, non-profit, education, healthcare, the military, religion, government—and homemakers—will benefit from Clark’s unique advice. Because many of the valuable tools and resources are gender-neutral, male readers will also learn how to better work with and for women.
Clark doesn’t just tell us what to do: She effectively shows us how and provides tools and language for practical applications with research, stories, and practice, including reflection questions and exercises. The book provides guidance and a structure for women to develop a vision statement that encompasses both their personal and professional lives. With this toolkit, women will become more effective leaders, and they will be able to lead from their best, most authentic place. They will also be able to live their best lives and pay it forward.
Embracing Your Power can be used by an individual, a book club, mentoring circles, organizational resource groups (focused on women) and potentially even at the organization level to develop curriculum (in conjunction with a membership service with tool availability). If you are eager to live your most authentic leadership life, join us too discover and embrace your power.

I received an advance copy of, Embracing your Power, by Marsha L. Clark. This is a great book for women and girls. There is a lot of discussion questions, activities, and reflections, among others. This has great information to make you think, and start creating your dreams.
I received an advanced copy from NetGalley, all views stated in this review are my own. I wasn’t sure what to expect with this book and was pleasantly surprised. The author provides a variety of scenarios, thought questions, and research designed to help women navigate the business world. The book is current and includes several recent examples. The author also reinforces that there isn’t just a female way but rather, behaviors occur across a spectrum and points out the benefits to recognizing this. I’ve already mentioned the book to a few friends who I think will benefit from the content.
This book is like a great pep talk if you’re feeling stuck or uninspired. Much of the book revolves around the workplace and leadership and how they are affected by gender differences, as well as other personal development topics like imposter syndrome and building trust. There are also reflection activities scattered throughout, though I would’ve liked to see some examples or discussion to accompany them. Overall, this was a well-researched and a surprisingly engrossing read. Thank you to the publisher and NetGalley for the ARC.
