I’m ready to tap into my own power.
What can women in business, education, government, and most any enterprise learn from an unemployed, unmarried woman who lived in patriarchal, misogynistic rural England more than 200 years ago? As it turns out, a great deal. In identifying the core surprising internal superpowers of Austen’s heroines—confidence, pragmatism, diligence, integrity, playfulness, and humility —Andrea Kayne develops the six principles of what she has conceptualized as Internally Referenced Leadership™.
Kicking Ass in a Corset: Jane Austen’s Six Principles for Living and Leading from the Inside Out is for women in leadership or who want to be in leadership in their professional but most importantly in their personal lives. This book is for anyone who wants to tap into their internal superpowers. Utilizing practical exercises, real-life case studies, and scholarship, Kicking Ass in a Corset™ provides a roadmap that teaches women of any age or profession how to tune out the external noise and listen to themselves.
