Shift Into Thrive – Six Strategies for Women to Unlock the Power of Resiliency
The award-winning book, Shift Into Thrive, provides six resilience-building strategies that women use successfully to thrive in the face of career challenges. These six powerful strategies, practical action steps, and inspiring stories from women around the world will enable you to create a career accompanied by growth, success, and satisfaction. Resilient women overcome obstacles and create the extraordinary careers they both desire and deserve. The ability to thrive in the midst of adversity is not a given; it is an intentional choice. Women who consciously make that choice are more likely to be transformed by their challenges.
While much has been learned in the past 30 years about the value women create for organizations, recent research indicates that women are still facing significant barriers to gender equality in the workforce and to advance into leadership roles. While career journeys are fraught with challenges for both genders, women frequently experience unique roadblocks like gender bias and stereotypes that are difficult to overcome and extract a big price both personally and professionally. The six strategies presented in Shift Into Thrive enable women to become better equipped to thrive despite these challenges.
The strategies apply to all working women worldwide, including those who are entrepreneurs, individual contributors, and leaders. While the framework is focused on women, many of the strategies can be applied across genders. The strategies are applicable to all people developers who work with women, including coaches and HR professionals. The book provides insights into organizational leaders that will enable them to implement strategies to retain women and increase business results. Shift Into Thrive was listed as one of the top 60 business books written by women by Inc.com.
