“Shifting Context: Leadership Springs from Within is an important book at an important time in history. Research consistently shows that countries who seriously invest in women’s and girls’ empowerment get a dramatic return on their investment financially, socially, and in all ways that matter for a civil society.
The women featured in this book are exemplars of that important investment!
The book will inspire you, move you, and remind you of the hidden power that women have to make all of our lives better. Kudos to Linda and Barbara for their essential leadership in this movement for social entrepreneurship!”

Ideal Image Review & Testimonial: What to Expect From Procedures
Your image matters to your professional career! Check out our guest post on this topic below. Enjoy! – Kimberly
Ideal Image is the leading aesthetic procedure company in the nation. It has over 800 medical professionals in 150 locations. The procedures offered by Ideal Image include laser hair removal, Botox and fillers, body fat reduction, and skin-tightening procedures.
The goal of the company is to allow its customers to look and feel their best. The improvement in appearance can provide a major boost to self-esteem and confidence. The procedures performed at Ideal Image are non-invasive, which means no surgery, no downtime, and no pain during the procedure. One of the most popular services at Ideal Image is laser hair removal. Here is more information about this procedure.
What Is Laser Hair Removal Treatment?
In laser hair removal at Ideal Image, a beam of light is used to eliminate hair follicles that allow the hair to grow. As the follicles get eliminated, they are no longer able to support hair growth, and the hair will eventually fall out. The procedure can be used to get rid of hair in different areas of the body, including the legs, facial hair, eyebrows, arms, chest, bikini line, and Brazilian. The laser hair treatment is performed by highly skilled medical professionals who have completed thousands of procedures. You will have an initial consultation with an Ideal Image professional to customize the treatment plan for your needs and guide you in what to expect before, during, and after laser hair removal treatment.
Working with Kimberly was both a pleasure and honour. In my decade-plus time in Japan, I’ve never had the chance to work with someone of her talent and caliber. It was motivating and inspirational for me and I got so much out of working with her. I’m now able to use new activities, incorporate a different approach to learning and add value to my classes as well as connect more deeply with my workshop participants.
I plan to recommend attending Kimberly’s presentation to everyone I know as one of the best project management presentations I have ever attended. It gives project managers the kick in the butt call-to-action they need.
It was simply MAGICAL. Kimberly’s super-unique workshop transformed my team. Now my team is super energetic and already started making positive changes. Thanks Kimberly!
Kimberly took me to the next level in taking on a leadership role. She encouraged me to success.
Not a day goes by here when I don’t use something I learned in the “Leading From Any Seat in the Org” class that you taught here last year. In fact, the manager of one of the folks who went through the class last year said his employee was transformed by the experience.
Thank you for inspiring me to be the leader I aspire to be. You are a great model of the courageous leadership philosophy in action.
Kimberly’s organizational culture work with us was like a journey to discover the hidden common sense shared in our organization and people across the world. Our company’s leaders successfully discovered their instinct and got much more unified as One Global Family after the journey. You can see some images of the journey from this book, just like reading a travel guidebook before taking off.
Kimberly is a whole energy level unto herself. I call it the “Kimberly Factor”. Her passion to give, teach and mentor excels people, programs and companies.
“She’s not just a leadership coach, she’s a mentor, a guide, and a friend. Her ability to connect with people is unparalleled, and her passion for helping others succeed is contagious. Working with Kimberly has been truly transformative for me. I’ve gained a deeper understanding of my values, strengths, and areas for improvement. I’ve also learned new skills and techniques for leading my team and achieving my goals. What I appreciate most about Kimberly is her authenticity. She always speaks fro… Read more
You provided me so many gifts yesterday. I feel like a large weight has fallen from my back. I’m smiling and feel better about having some direction, thank to you!
