Playing Big - Practical Wisdom for Women Who Want to Speak Up, Create, and Lead

I’ve been gifting this book to the women that I mentored. I love going back to this book from time to time. Every chapter is full of practical wisdom and introspective questions. It helped me break my “good student habits”, and inspired me to reflect and to lead from within. I particularly loved the concept of visualizing your inner mentor.
