Resilience: It's How You Can Succeed Like Hillary.

Leadership Secrets of Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton is the very model of a successful leader, gifted at prospering even in the face of turbulent times. The real question is: Could the same be said about you?

Ask yourself:

Do I bounce back from challenging situations?

Do I know how to learn from my mistakes?

Do I make my words count?

Do I embrace change and take advantage of new opportunities?

In Leadership Secrets of Hillary Clinton, leadership expert Rebecca Shambaugh reveals the unique formula of open-mindedness, intense focus, authenticity, and resilience that allows Hillary to answer "yes" to all of these questions and that has led to her historic rise onto the world stage.

"In today's uncertain and demanding markets—or in a theater of war, where chaos reigns—the value of resiliency cannot be underestimated. Rebecca Shambaugh's timely, powerful examination of Hillary Clinton's leadership success provides concrete strategies and techniques that individuals and organizations of any size can use to lead decisively and effectively, no matter the climate." -- David L. Grange, U.S. Army Major General (ret.) and CEO of PPD Inc.

She has survived personal and professional crises and moved forward to authoritatively step into one of the most important political positions on the planet—and at one of her country's toughest times. What are the secrets to Hillary Rodham Clinton's success?

U .S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton knows how to prosper despite—and even because of—challenges. Confident and self-realized, she is inspiring and effective in good times and bad, and this has led to an unprecedented life of "firsts." Among them:

  • First First Lady to run for (and win) a U.S. Senate seat

  • First female senator of New York

  • First female major-party candidate to mount a serious challenge for the U.S. presidency

  • And, as Secretary of State, she is the first former First Lady to serve in a president's cabinet

Hillary may have "come in second" in the race for the Democratic Party presidential nomination, but Clinton has earned worldwide respect as a first-rate leader. Leadership Secrets of Hillary Clinton dissects her powerful leadership style, making each of its aspects easy to put into practice. You'll learn:

  • how to stay optimistic and on message in tough times

  • how to create a "personal brand" that people will want to get behind

  • how to adapt to change and disappointment—while never losing sight of your purpose and authenticity

  • how to effectively communicate, re-engage, and inspire others in difficult times

  • how to win the partnership of others (even detractors!) and to grow your network of supporters

  • how to instill a sense of hope, commitment, and resilience for those around you as a leader

Written by leadership expert and bestselling author Rebecca Shambaugh, Leadership Secrets of Hillary Clinton offers proven lessons for success from one of our finest modern exemplars.

Rebecca Shambaugh is the founder and CEO of SHAMBAUGH Leadership and author of It's Not a Glass Ceiling, It's a Sticky Floor. She lives in Washington, D.C.

    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.
