Can you win life’s battles without losing yourself?

Life is full of trials, and sometimes you need a warrior spirit to overcome them. Award-winning attorney Heather Hansen has spent over twenty years fighting on the battlefields of the courts—but even in her fiercest clashes, she’s remained true to herself and her principles. She shares her journey to becoming an Elegant Warrior, and imparts the wisdom she’s learned from her decades on the bar.

Armed with the tools and techniques she’s honed in the courtroom, Hansen makes the case that anyone can become an Elegant Warrior: someone who fights adversity with grace and compassion, and battles without losing respect for themselves and their adversaries.

Using real-life case studies and personal stories from the fast-paced courtroom arena, Hansen teaches you how to triumph over your own struggles. From overcoming the Curse of Knowledge to discovering the Power of How, you’ll learn how to tap into your own personal strengths to face whatever challenges come your way.

We all have to go to war at times. Sometimes the combat zone is your home; sometimes it’s the office. And sometimes, it’s your inner world. As an Elegant Warrior, you’ll be armed with the confidence, wisdom and skills to enter the fray and remain true to yourself.
