Significant Women: Leaders Reveal What Matters Most

Most leadership books written for women today either advise us to lean in, speak up, and demand more. They are filled with tactical advice on everything from where to position yourself in the board room to how to negotiate a total compensation package.

However, very few leadership books start with the simple question – What matters to you?

Who are you? What do you care about? What makes you an effective leader?




In Significant Women, you will meet corporate executives and entrepreneurs who have grappled with these questions. They have led accomplished lives in the business world by revisiting their sense of significance often – sometimes by choice and oftentimes after being confronted with immense challenges on their path.

This book is for ambitious women – and men – who seek to have a big impact on the world while also being true to themselves and their values. By hearing the stories and lessons from over twenty successful, accomplished business leaders from around the globe, you’ll see yourself in their trials and triumphs and learn how to:


Accept all parts of yourself as the leader that you are.


Honor your growth and inspire others.


Appreciate the beauty in the detours of your life.


Discern what matters most to you on your path to significance.


Lead from a place of humility and fiery passion.


Inspire your teams by creating shared significance.
