The Unapologetic Woman by Dr. Danita Johnson Hughes

Are you caught up in The Sorry Syndrome?

The words “lead” and “team” are more than just four letter words. They deliver ways of making decisions; of doing work; getting things done and relating to those who are led and to members of the team. When leaders don’t sync with their teams, morale can plummet, loyalties disappear, distrust grows, stress increases and productivity nosedives. As the leader, you are viewed as inept—your good people start exiting.

You can’t afford to be “sorry” when they do … what you have to do is to become the best leader you can.

You are the “key player” of your team — be it small or large. In that role, you need a unique combination of skills that include confidence and courage. In your hands, Dr. Danita Johnson Hughes shares her insights from years of creating and building teams that work. She knows that you will make mistakes and that you are not perfect. And she knows that the sheer number of demands and obligations on your time are frequently beyond your control—she has “been there, done that.”

In The Unapologetic Woman, you will learn how to remove the blinders and the rose-colored glasses that many leaders engage. You will learn how to become an effective leader; one that employees desire to be led by.

The Sorry Syndrome will not encumber or hold you back.
