Description

By women and for women who lead, this book helps build fundamental skills for moving projects forward, leading others effectively, and achieving desired results. Women in leadership roles at home, at church, or at work will learn to master five key areas: group building, communication skills, relationship skills, conflict management, and time management.

Written with women’s needs specifically in mind, here is a book that will equip every woman to fully realize her leadership potential.

Includes discussion questions and learning exercises at the end of each chapter.

In the second chapter of the book which tackles Relationship Essentials, author Linda Clark emphasizes how important it is for women to look inward in defining herself so as to not be lost in the conflicting demands of the different roles a woman takes on. This is also important for women to be able to help the people in her life discover their own identities.

This is one of the exercises that she suggests, and this can be your starting point in “profiling” yourself
