The business caseis compelling. Companies with more women in leadership posts simply perform better. Fortune 500 firms with the most female board members outperform those with the least by 26% on return on invested capital and 16% on return on sales, according to a 2011 Catalyst study.


Yet the number of women at the top is barely budging:...

John "When Doing It All Won't Do: A Self-Coaching Guide for Career Women"

Career women are deep into a structural shift taking place within organizations and households with many working women becoming the primary breadwinner.

That is why a new self-coaching guide for career women has been written by co-author Barbara McEwen and I over the last three years with the book released earlier this month.

The concept of the book came about because of the very real, very important needs that our female clients repeatably expressed in their struggles with the countless roles and duties that are routinely placed on them. That is why Barb and I have a unique understanding of female perceptions that affect their work and home life challenges along with what approaches have worked well for our women clients.

As you well know, career women 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. In an effort to squeeze even more into their nightmarish schedules, these women continue to make choices that actually undermine their health, family life, careers and important relationships.

You may have read the February 14 edition of The New Yorker magazine where Tina Fey wrote: "What is the rudest question you can ask a woman? How old are you? What do you weigh? No, the worst question is: How do you juggle it all? The topic of working moms is a tap-dance recital in a minefield. 'How do you juggle it all?' people constantly ask me, with a accusatory look in their eyes. 'You're screwing it all up, aren't you?' their eyes say. My standard answer is that I have the same struggles as any working parent but with the good fortune to be working in my dream job."


Women are dancing to a frenzied beat, believing just because they can, they should. They have been taught, if they are capable of doing something, it shouldn't be necessary to look for help. This has led women to become frustrated by experiencing long days and frantic schedules. Many working women are exhausted. Isn't it time that career women reclaimed their time and life?


Let's be clear, this book isn't just for the dissatisfied. It is a prescription for identifying the various aspects of your life that make you unique, without which, you may never be able to understand why you behave or react the way you do. The book is neither relaxing nor a break from reality where the reader just rides along. It is a vehicle where the reader is in the driver's seat and sets the GPS to get to where she wants to be in her career and personal life.
