Description

Would you like to discover your most authentic, powerful leadership self? Would you like to 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 building 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 her 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).

Marsha Clark was a corporate officer in a Fortune 50 company and has spent over twenty years supporting women around the world through coaching and leadership development programs. She brings research, anecdotal experience, real-life stories, and practical application to all her work.

Read by the american author this book does exactly what it says on the tin. Its a work kit, a manual for life, and self development for women in the workplace or self employed. Many examples of male/female approaches to business decisions and situations. Non verbal cues from male and females when explained gives you a lightbulb moment. Understanding the female brain doo react differently from male brains, once you understand it, preparer the situations. Be your authentic self, be feminine and be positive, if you want this then the book will give you exercises, examples, scenarios and tips to help yourself and understand those around you. I need to read it again to absorb everything. Thank you #NetGalley for the audiobook to review.

I listened to the audiobook, but I did not like the narrator. This made it hard for me to keep listening. However, the book is great, inspiring and motivating. Most of the book revolves around workplace and leadership roles which is great. This book so simplified and would be great for a starter or if you're struggling hard to find inspiration. But if you're on a higher level, you might probably find little to add to your knowledge.

This book was great for women in leadership or women in the workplace. It gave me some great tips and addresses topics that I’ve been thinking about recently. I listened to this as an audiobook and didn’t have trouble staying awake with the narrator. Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for a copy to honestly review.

Gives a good foundation for finding your power. Lots of helpful scored tests to see where you fall and what you need to work on. Can't wait for the rest of the books to come out.. We are purchasing the hardcover edition for our library.

Thanks #netgallery for this book. Listened to the audiobook and enjoyed the narration. There is only so much that you can do differently with a leadership book. This book was good but mostly the same content as other books of this genre.

I did not like the audiobook's narrator, which made it hard to listen to the content itself. This book has a lot of activities and reflections for the reader to work on their power as a woman. Most of the book feels elementary and overly simplified. If you are really struggling and don't know where to start, this will be a good book for you. If you, generally, understand your worth, value, and power, then this will not help you.

Embracing Your Power is a great reminder of the power we have within us. It highlights a lot of situations and circumstances that might diminish someone's confidence, but then turns around, taps you on the shoulder, and dusts them off so you can go on your way and take charge not only to embrace your power but to reclaim it. It is uplifting, empowering, motivating, and inspiring. Marsha L. Clark knows how to support women and give them the tools to help themselves and others. This is what they meant when they say, "It takes a village", and Marsha L. Clark is making sure we find a path to follow.

This book was AMAZING and so empowering for women in the workplace. I loved hearing the differences between men and women in the workplace. That was so helpful. One thing I learned from this book is that I apologize way too often for things that are not my fault. I have also noticed that the men in my workplace almost never apologize. That was completely eye opening. This is something I am aware of and really working on. I also know that I have imposter syndrome. The segment on that was incredibly helpful. In fact, the author had a lot of helpful advice and suggestions that I plan to use in the workplace. I also really liked the narrator. I am so excited that this is a series. I can't wait to listen to the next one.

This book takes an empathetic approach and gives bite size approaches and allows you to have kindness and patience with yourself when dealing with life. This is so necessary for everyone to read in life. Highly recommend. Especially loved the reflection to true life to humanize my feelings and relate. I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.
