The power of leadership and mentoring for YOUR personal and professional EVOLUTION

A roadmap for established and emerging leaders who are on the journey of self-love and personal growth to become the best leader they can be.

Synopsis

Leadership is a journey in constant evolution. Women’s Empowerment, mentoring, networking, inner work, pay it forward and spiritual intelligence are the cornerstones in which the author immerses us and takes us to that safe space where human nature is transformed and lights the spark of transcendental leadership.

Maria Gabriela intimately shares her journey that started in 2007 with a life-changing experience program created by the power of partnership between Fortune magazine, the US Department of State and Vital Voices Global Partnership.

The author walks us through seven stages of empowerment, revealing the keys and the essential tools needed to become a major leader for oneself and for others, while with simple and practical ideas, this inspiring book guides us towards skills we may develop to take our leadership to its full potential, both personally and professionally.

María Gabriela, “Tissy” to some, tells us first-hand her findings, challenges and secrets to find her vital strength, her inner power and her true essence. She inspires us to look for these qualities inside ourselves, and to wake up our inner leader, to light our sacred fire and to nurture our wisdom in order to lead from within your heart and improve the world.

Only a very self aware person who has walked the walk could capture the many aspects of the leadership journey as perfectly as Maria Gabriela. I'm so glad this book is finally here, and am in awe of her ability to share her own journey with great wisdom, tremendous insight, humility and a dose of good humor. This book is not only a roadmap for emerging women leaders; it is a reminder to women leaders everywhere of how far we still have to go.

We are always inspired by the women in the world who despite obstacles and barriers yet armed with passion and purpose are able to cut a swath of inspiration and impact for all of us. That is Maria Gabriela Hoch. Her belief in a better way was a constant companion in her inspiring story of how each of us has the capacity to be a difference maker.
