    Hillary Clinton: Leadership in Primetime

    Like her or hate her, Hillary Clinton is one of the most fascinating and influential women in America, if not the world, today. Senator Clinton was been on the public stage for decades; first as the wife of then little known Arkansas Governor Bill Clinton, then as America's First Lady. She served admirably in that role popularized by Jackie Kennedy, but Hillary's drive and resilience didn't stop there. She jumped head long in numerous national issues, such as education, child care, and most notably, healthcare, where she took the rarified role of leading the charge on behalf of President Clinton.

    So, who is Hillary Rodman Clinton really? How did she become the women we know today, and is there anyway we learn from her what it takes to be a leader in our modern, often cynical age? The answer is yes. Author Rebecca Shambaugh has written an engrossing book about Clinton entitled, "Leadership Secrets of Hillary Clinton".

    Now, I'll be honest with you. Hillary Clinton is not one of my favorite people, at least from a political perspective. But, I've got to admit that I admire her courage of convection, knowledge, and fortitude. All of these traits and more are wonderfully detailed in Ms. Shambaugh's book. Each chapter introduces the reader to a specific topic (such as Chapter 2 "Overcoming and Thriving on Adversity: Be Resilient" or Chapter 7 "Making Your Words Count: Awesome Communication") and then Ms. Shambaugh guides the reader through specific steps (called "Secrets") on how to take the lessons outlined in the chapter and make them work for you.

    The 196 page book is ideally written for anyone, regardless of gender or political leanings, who wants to learn how to improve their ability to cope under pressure, whether in the classroom, boardroom, home, or in the public arena! "Leadership Secrets of Hillary Clinton" is a "must read" for anyone interested in leadership at every level.
