In a world of increasing dysfunction and anxiety, this book provides a guiding light to not only survive, but thrive, professionally and personally.
Dysfunction abounds in America in so many ways, from continuous turbulent change in the business environment, to a US federal government polarized by an inability to compromise and fulfill its historic missions, to personal levels where even deeper and darker levels of dysfunction reside within our colleagues, families, friends, and ourselves. Can any of us survive and thrive against such a backdrop of unsettledness and anxiety? Deborah Lee James wants to help us try.
As the 23rd Secretary of the Air Force (only the second woman to lead a US military service) and a successful business leader, Deborah reveals in Aim High: Chart Your Course and Find Success her formula for success, using challenges to grow stronger, and staying true to herself and her goals. Ultimately, her three-part strategy has allowed her to thrive as a leader in government and business, and as a mother and wife.
In Aim High: Chart Your Course and Find Success, Deborah shares her personal and professional challenges, outcomes, strategies for success, and the problem-solving principles she used to overcome the daunting pressures, threats, and challenges that come with rising to the top of the US Armed Forces. As a supplement to Deborah’s storytelling, Bain and Company, a top-tier management consulting firm, offers research and statistics that prove Deborah’s insights have widespread impact.
Readers will appreciate Deborah’s success in rising up through the ranks of male-dominated institutions so that her life could be lived to its fullest, happiest, and on her own terms. Aim High: Chart Your Course and Find Success reveals to readers how they can do the same.
