Wander Woman: How High-Achieving Women Find Contentment and Direction
ReadHowYouWant.com, Dec 30, 2010 - 340 pages
Presents fresh research and powerful stories to give voice to a new generation of women driven by challenge and change Offers compelling advice on how to make wandering a life strategy, not just a series of unplanned events Includes probing questions and thought-provoking exercises to help readers find peace in life's chaos and confusion Theres a new generation of high-achieving women today - confident, ambitious, accomplished, driven. And yet, as master coach Marcia Reynolds discovered, many of them are also anxious, discontented, and frustrated. Theyre constantly questioning their purpose, juggling multiple roles, and reevaluating their goals. As a result theyre restless - they move from job to job, from challenge to challenge, almost on impulse. Theyre wander women. Existing personal growth books, so focused on empowerment and encouragement, cant help these women. They dont need to find their voice - they know how to roar. They dont expect balance in their lives - but they long to find peace in the chaos. They arent necessarily focused on gaining a seat in the boardroom - they want projects that mean something or businesses they run on their own. Reynolds helps wander women understand the roots of their restlessness and make their wandering a conscious strategy, not a reaction.
