In Woman of Influence, Jo Miller provides valuable and practical advice for women stepping into leadership roles—whether leader is in the job description or not. I love the way that Miller describes the different leadership styles; it helps readers better understand their inherent strengths. As Miller writes, “developing as a leader is not about changing yourself. It’s about becoming yourself.”

Filled with practical advice and hands-on exercises, reading this book is like working with an expert

I met Jo Miller over 15 years ago when I enrolled in one of her workshops, "Leadership for Technical Women." It was a game changer for me. It helped to understand what real leadership is (hint: it's not your title) and how to build my authentic leadership style. I was struggling with being my authentic self, wondering how to play to my strengths and create work that made me delighted to do my job. This book provides a guide that has both an opportunity for self reflection -- figure out what will ...more

This book is a must read for new and mid-career professionals. One of my favorite quotes in Jo’s book is “...all of the important decisions about your career will be made when you are not in the room.” She couldn’t be more right about that! And that is why learning how to build your personal brand and establishing your own legacy/narrative is critical to success.

As a new professional, just out of graduate school, this book provided wonderful ideas about how I can establish a strong foundation to set myself on a leadership trajectory. By completing some of the exercises provided in the book, I was able to self-reflect and come up with a brand statement that will hopefully set me apart in my organization. Additionally, creating a shadow organization map, from Part 3, was instrumental in helping me understand the structures of my workplace, in a way I hadn ...more

An excellent book on developing or refining your leadership style while remaining authentic and true to oneself. This resonated with me more than following a one-size-fits-all recipe for success. She shows you how to capitalize on your strengths and clearly illustrates how there is room for many styles of leadership in a successful organization.

Jo Miller encourages women to build on our strengths, rather than telling us that we need to “fix” ourselves to get ahead (like so many other career books do). Jo’s spot-on, practical approach to finding your unique leadership niche is bolstered with real-world advice from a long list of high-level female executives, who have "been there, done that."

Organizations would be well served to buy this book for every woman on their team (and her boss). Actually, anyone who’s working to advance gender

Boom! Jo Miller’s book, Women of Influence is a must read for any woman (or man) looking to go from ordinary to extraordinary and seeing their career soar. Miller encourages leaders to remain authentic, as authentic leaders have happier followers. I’ve found this to be true as well, and have written in detail about this in my book, The Magnetic Leader. Miller goes one step further and shows readers how to build an authentic brand that will grow along with you as your career shifts and evolves.
