Step Up
Women’s Journey to Identity, Success and Power

November 2019 | 256 pages | SAGE India

Step Up is a transformative journey that provides women with the necessary tools to become powerful leaders. It is an ‘inner journey’ to reveal commonly held beliefs that women have of themselves and others, as well as patterns of behaviour and choices that form the lens through which they see the world. Being aware of this allows them to look at the world differently and make impactful changes in their professional lives.Borrowing from the well-known frameworks of Generative Leadership (GL) and Transactional Analysis (TA), the book provides an inside-out approach advocating potent practices that can create effective leadership.

Step Up allows women to challenge the unique barriers to their advancement and explore their leadership potential through a distinctive inside-out approach.’ -Neha Bagaria, Founder and CEO, JobsForHer.‘Step Up draws its “pulsating-with-life, change-maker, easy-to- identify-with” trademark from the lived realities of its author, a practicing psychotherapist, and her coachees, brought alive through personal narratives and soul-searching tools.
