The Ritz-Carlton team and IBM sales used her best-selling book Plant Your Feet Firmly in Mid-Air to help create their successful transformations. She is author of four other books: Dancing with Tigers, Positive Spin, Why Won’t They Listen to Me? (pack leadership), and the recent release on personal transformation The Four Elements of Transformation. Her forthcoming book (Wiley, 2017) highlights the disruptive leadership mindset needed to guide others through disruptive change.
