After 30+ years at McKinsey & Company, I've become a director emerita, with a busy schedule of speaking engagements, consulting assignments, new research, and Centered Leadership workshops connected to the books, "How Remarkable Women Lead," and "Centered Leadership," published by Crown/Random House. I am writing a book based on my research on Millennials, to share the lessons of men and women who have accelerated their growth through, not despite of, challenges at work.
