Too many women depend on external approval to define their self worth. While that desire might initially drive people to high-performing jobs, it secretly sabotages their chances of the fulfilling life and career they desire. Brooke Taylor has transformed the lives of more than 5,000 high-achieving women in business by healing what she calls “the success wound” – the pain that comes from a person’s mistaking success for her self-worth.

Working with high-level executives at companies like Uber, Microsoft, and Google, Brooke’s advice has helped clients land promotions, advance into leadership roles, negotiate raises, and start businesses with millions of dollars in funding.

But Brooke’s process doesn’t just lead to career success. By helping women find self-worth outside of their career, she also helps to heal crippling burnout, alleviate chronic anxiety, increase confidence and self-assurance, and create healthy new habits that clients actually stick to.

Brooke’s five-step process to help women succeed in their careers and in their relationships with themselves is proven. Now, in her first book, she’ll share that process with women around the globe – showing them how to separate self-worth from success, without having to sacrifice.

Brooke Taylor is a Career Coach, speaker, workshop facilitator, and former Marketing Lead at Google. In the crowded space of career coaching, she has distinguished herself as an expert in helping transform the lives and careers of over 5,000 high-achieving female leaders at companies like Google, Uber, Coinbase, McKinsey, Goldman Sachs, and Salesforce through healing their success wound. She has been featured across global media like Forbes, Entrepreneur, Women’s Health, and Marie Claire, and she frequently speaks at events for Fortune 500 companies.

RED HELICOPTER —A PARABLE FOR OUR TIMES de James Rhee

A true story of triumph by award-winning business leader, impact investor, and educator James Rhee that will inspire and empower us to transform our lives and our businesses with the simple and yet powerful combination of kindness and math.

RED HELICOPTER A PARABLE FOR OUR TIMES
lead change with kindness (plus a little math)
by James Rhee
HarperOne, April 2024

In kindergarten, James Rhee received a toy red helicopter in gratitude for a simple act of kindness—the innocent generosity of sharing his lunch. Nearly four decades later, the true meaning and lesson from this memory helped him overcome indescribable hurdles as both a first time CEO and son to a dying father. Combining the radical common sense of a child with the knowledge of an experienced private equity investor and law school graduate, James led one of the most dramatic reinventions in business history. Partnering with Black women across America, James led Ashley Stewart, a twice-bankrupt retailer with no WiFi, from the jaws of liquidation to a transcendent success that inspired a world seeking a different way. And, in the process, he was able to reconcile his own complicated past and see his mom for who she truly was.

Combining the clarity and imagination we had as children with some basic business metrics, Rhee composed a system he calls “Kindness and Math.” It’s a simple solution to the dissatisfaction and worry so many of us feel, an intuitive response to the gnawing uncertainty we face daily as we meander through our lives and struggle to understand why we might feel so out of control in our professional and personal lives. red helicopter—a parable for our times exposes the root cause for these feelings and encourages us to embrace a few key principles to reorient our lives, organizations, and the world to reflect the best in us. In this remarkable book, Rhee provides the tools we can use to:

•             Embrace agency by identifying the obstacles quietly holding us back

•             Construct a balance sheet of our true assets and liabilities

•             Create and measure “goodwill,” the ultimate collective good

•             Lead systems transformation with a framework comprised of small, scalable acts

•             Drive financial profitability with little to no investment of money

•             Unlock the value of difference and the unpredictable

•             and more

Rhee’s fresh thinking emerged from an emotional journey in which both the professional and personal intersected and became one. The financial uncertainty, family tragedy, and soul-searching he endured, after the whole world left him and Ashley Stewart for dead, led him to create a simple and scalable solution to the struggles that ail us all. This quiet and powerful ode to humanity is sorely needed in today’s troubled world.

James Rhee is an acclaimed impact investor, founder, CEO, goodwill strategist, thought leader, and educator, who empowers people, brands, and organizations by marrying capital with purpose. He bridges the emotional with the mathematical, and gives permission for us to be human. A long-time private equity investor, James also serves as a founding member of JP Morgan Chase’s Advancing Black Pathways, a charter member of Ashoka’s Entrepreneur-to-Entrepreneur Network, and former Chair of the Innovation Committee of the National Retail Federation. In addition to his private sector endeavors, Rhee teaches at Howard University (where he serves as the Johnson Chair of Entrepreneurship), MIT Sloan School of Management, and Duke School of Law. He lives in Boston, Massachusetts.

INFECTIOUS GENEROSITY de Chris Anderson

From the bestselling author, media pioneer, and curator of TED Chris Anderson, INFECTIOUS GENEROSITY is an inspiring, revelatory book about the secret, urgent and world-changing potential of one of humankind’s defining but overlooked impulses: generosity.

INFECTIOUS GENEROSITY:
The Ultimate Idea Worth Spreading
by Chris Anderson
Crown, January 2024

As head of TED for the past 20 years, Chris Anderson has had a ringside view of the world’s most significant thinkers sharing their boldest ideas across every imaginable discipline, and he’s noticed that generosity is the essential tool that connects everything. It may seem simple, but generosity has played a key role in building the tools, knowledge, and institutions that have allowed civilization to flourish.
In this profound and inspiring book, Anderson shows how the same technologies that have been a catalyst for negativity can be turned into an exponential force for good—to create chain reactions of generous behavior. Gifts of time, talent, connection, and kindness have always been part of what it is to be a good human. What’s different today, Anderson reveals, is the power each of us has—if we’d only stop to think about it—to catalyze world-changing, self-replicating impact in a domino effect of generosity. The people, companies, investors and organizations who understand this—who prioritize generosity, and give more to the world than they take from it—are the ones that will own the future and will be happier as a result.

Chris Anderson has been the curator of TED since 2001. His TED mantra—“ideas worth spreading”—continues to blossom on an international with more than one billion TED Talks viewed annually. He lives in New York City and London.

SEXISM AND SENSIBILITY de Jo-Ann Finkelstein

From Harvard-trained psychologist Jo-Ann Finkelstein, this powerful guide to understanding and dismantling sexism helps parents figure out how to raise girls in a culture that often demeans them.

SEXISM AND SENSIBILITY
Raising Fierce and Empowered Girls in the Modern World
by Jo-Ann Finkelstein
Harmony, September 2024

We live in a world of mixed messages for women: You can be anything you want to be, but don’t expect to be paid equally for it; It’s what is inside that counts, but be sure to wax, bleach, and slim down what’s outside first; You deserve respect and equality, but our laws won’t always protect your rights. Most parents find it easier to tell girls how strong, equal, and powerful they are than to talk about how the world can be particularly difficult or scary for them. But when we don’t address the challenging or disturbing experiences most girls endure, we contribute to the problem.

Jo-Ann Finkelstein has worked with girls for two decades to shake off the toxic messages about beauty, sex, and femininity. She unpacks the universal experiences that girls live with and helps parents safeguard and fine-tune their daughters’ natural “sexism detectors.” SEXISM AND SENSIBILITY is full of concrete solutions for helping girls understand and confront sexism in all its guises.

Jo-Ann Finkelstein, Ph.D., trained as a clinical psychologist at Harvard University and Northwestern University and now maintains a private clinical practice rooted in an understanding of how gender bias, social justice, and mental health intersect. An expert blogger for Psychology Today, her work has been highlighted in The New York Times, The Atlantic, Women’s Health and on HuffPost and CNN. Her writing has appeared in Ms. Magazine, Your Teen Magazine, and Medium, among other publications.
