Stepping Into Your Power
An embodied approach to developing women leaders which invites us to re-write our interpretation of power, from the prevailing ‘power over’ to ‘power with’ developing a felt sense that the whole is greater than any one individual. This is the pathway to creating organisations that work for everyone.
The book Stepping Into Your Power integrates different perspectives and theoretical frames with the author’s own experience of working with women leaders in organisations combined with action research. It sets out how women are able to dismantle the internal barriers that maintain the status quo and become a powerful force for change.
Individual and collective transformation are interdependent and inseparable. When women come together and support one another it is possible to transcend the norms and social forces and shift the prevailing culture. We can create more inclusive cultures where everyone, women and men, can participate and contribute to the benefit of all. It’s time to rewrite our interpretation of power, it’s time to make a difference.

Inspiring and thought provoking
Easy to read, but inspiring and thought provoking, I found myself quickly connecting with the ladies who have bravely and honestly shared their stories. I also liked the holistic approach of including practices which help give time to reflect on each story. I very much enjoyed reading this book and it gives me food for thought in my own role as a people manager.
