Leadership and Life Strategies
for Professional Women

Confident Women Inspire!


Recommended Reading

There are many good books out there for women on leadership and I can recommend many if not most of them. Your best bet is to put “Women and Leadership” into the Amazon search field and take a look around. New ones are being written every month as the opportunities for women leaders increase. If you would like some specific recommendations from me, shoot me an email and let me know what areas of leadership you are looking for and I’ll send along some titles.

So, I am going to recommend a few books in other areas.
