Because when we are unaware, we unconsciously engage our default behavior. Only when we become aware of who we are and how others see us are we able to change our behavior.
Sometimes, just being aware, allows the problem to solve us--rather than requiring us to solve the problem.
What makes "Women, Know Yourself" different?
North America's top coaches of career women, Barb McEwen and John Agno, have documented over three years, proven coaching solutions that have worked well for their women clients. These exclusive self-coaching secrets discovered by successful career women are now, for the first time, available to all working women.
The concept for this book came about because of very real, very important needs that their female clients repeatedly express. Year after year, the authors have heard working women’s frustrations, and have helped them deal with massive internal conflicts. Both society and individuals 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.
The book is intended to help you understand and work with your unique inner compass. As you read the book, you will be amazed at what you learn about yourself.
Here is what one female coaching client said about knowing herself:
"One of the most important business lessons, that I learned came through my work with executive coach John Agno, when I realized that I wasn't operating with internal integrity. It is important to know, understand and accept yourself--idiosyncrasies and all. You are better at some things and worse at others. Know your strengths and blind spots. No one is perfect and no one fits in everywhere. Be true to yourself and who you are. You are happiest when you are in alignment inside and out." Faith Fuqua-Purvis
Let’s face it: you are the most interesting and important subject in the entire world. You will always be at or near the center of your world. It’s a comfortable place to be! So, one of the most exciting—and, often, one of the most intimidating—experiences lies in gaining a fuller understanding of just who you are.
Self-understanding means knowing what we need and how we desire to grow. It starts with two simple questions:
Do I like who I am?
Am I happy with the person I am becoming?
To answer honestly, we need to have crystal-clear insight into the person who bears our name and Social Security number.
How can "Women, Know Thyself" improve your life?
This self-coaching book is fully loaded with proven insights that have worked well for our female career clients like:
Exploring your signature talents
Doing what you do best

If your brain tells you that you're not focusing on those things that really matter, then this book is for you. Reading it will help you understand and work with your unique inner compass.

As you learn more about yourself, you will know best how to manage your time and life in a way that gives you peace, a sense of fulfillment and the strength to handle the challenges ahead.
