For professional women who feel stuck or are returning to work, this guided workbook will help them activate their careers with clarity, intention, and confidence. Through simple, inspiring, and actionable tools, women will be empowered to focus on the things that truly matter, set boundaries and, ultimately, realize their full potential. 

Embrace the Work, Love Your Career is a workbook for any woman who feels that their career is stalling, they've reached a crossroads and aren't quite sure about their next move, or they feel like they are fading into the background. Centered around five main actions, the workbook will help you move ahead without sacrificing your love of the job. It starts with "Focus," where you'll be prompted to set your own specific priorities. "Enable" lets you set boundaries so you'll be able to carve out the time you need to work on your priorities. The "Listen" section helps you create a personal advisory board—people who can be there when you need them to support and encourage you—and also learn from. "Be" offers tools to move through your career with confidence and intention. And finally, "Reflect" gives you the space to look back and decide what's working—and what isn't. You'll revisit and reevaluate your priorities so you can continue to move forward. By the time you complete the workbook you will have a clear path to move forward and activate your career with clarity, intention, and confidence.
