What makes "Women, Know Yourself" different?
North America's top coaches of executive women, Barb McEwen and John Agno, have documented over three years, proven coaching solutions that have worked well for their career women clients. These exclusive self-coaching secrets discovered by successful women are now, for the first time, available to all working women.
The concept for this book came about because of very real, very important needs that their female clients repeatedly express. Year after year, the authors have heard working women’s frustrations, and have helped them deal with massive internal conflicts. Both society and individuals struggle with countless expectations, too much to do in too little time, and the fact that they receive little of the support or recognition they want—and deserve.
The book is intended to help you understand and work with your unique inner compass. As you read the book, you will be amazed at what you learn about yourself.
Here is what one female coaching client said about knowing herself:
"One of the most important business lessons, that I learned came through my work with executive coach John Agno, when I realized that I wasn't operating with internal integrity. It is important to know, understand and accept yourself--idiosyncrasies and all. You are better at some things and worse at others. Know your strengths and blind spots. No one is perfect and no one fits in everywhere. Be true to yourself and who you are. You are happiest when you are in alignment inside and out." Faith Fuqua-Purvis
The most important knowledge is self-knowledge.
Let’s face it: you are the most interesting and important subject in the entire world. You will always be at or near the center of your world. It’s a comfortable place to be! So, one of the most exciting—and, often, one of the most intimidating—experiences lies in gaining a fuller understanding of just who you are.
Self-understanding means knowing what we need and how we desire to grow. It starts with two simple questions:
Do I like who I am?
Am I happy with the person I am becoming?
To answer honestly, we need to have crystal-clear insight into the person who bears our name and Social Security number.
