Powering Up!
How America's Women Achievers Become Leaders

Three unique generations of highly-educated, professionally seasoned, ambitious women have dramatically changed the global workforce and are ready and itching to lead. POWERING UP! will help you answer the call to leadership.

If you've already leaned-in, here's your graduate work!

POWERING UP! guides high-achieving women through the seven skills they need to master next, including Womaninity -- the strength to lead as a woman in a man's world.

Here's how Anne explained this critical leadership skill to a global Accenture audience.

It's essential for a woman with the ability and desire to lead to honestly address these critical questions: Are you fulfilling your sense of purpose through your present work? Do you believe you can truly make a difference in your present position? If your answer to those questions is "Yes," hang in there. Your leadership is needed. On the other hand, do you have a nagging sense that you are wasting precious time furiously treading water while getting no closer to the sense of purpose that gives your work meaning? If so, remember: leading is not about making money or achieving impressive titles. It’s about making a difference.

"In tune with the issues women face today"

"Anne Doyle is a tested leader, an advocate and innovator for women and leadership.  Hers is a new voice on the national scene, but her book, Powering Up!, is all the evidence you'll need of how in tune she is with the issues and realities women leaders of every generation face today."
Marie C. Wilson
Founder & President
The White House Project
"Anne Doyle blows past the usual limitations of books on women's leadership by setting her sights on the big picture, which is the 'cultural quicksand that seeps under our skin, grips us to stay in place and resists our efforts to emerge to new and higher ground.' Anne points the way for the current three generations of working women to understand each other and complement our respective strengths and weaknesses. I wish I had had this book to reread at every stage of my career. I keep buying copies to make sure the women I care about do."

"Powering Up! synthesizes much of the latest thinking on women's advancement into an inspirational and easy read. Anne Doyle provides a motivational look at how women can build on their strengths to fulfill their true leadership potential."

"Anne Doyle's debut book is smart, brave, ballsy and required reading for ambitious women of all ages."
Susan Shapiro, Author of
Overexposed and Only as Good as Your Word
"Anne Doyle has been breaking barriers and shattering stereotypes all her life. Her advice is honest, hard-earned, and comes from the heart."
Alex Taylor, III
Senior Editor-at-large
Fortune magazine
"When Anne Doyle broke into sports reporting, the glass ceiling for women in that profession was made of steel -- and so was the door, which was often locked. With good grace, common sense and unrelenting professionalism, Doyle and other pioneers changed the demographics of the craft for the better. She is exceptionally qualified to author a book on female leadership. She knows the turf."
Joe LaPointe
Sports Journalist, Fanhouse, New York Times, Detroit Free Press
"Anne Doyle shines an up-to-date spotlight on the unique talents and experiences that forge women leaders today. Her own unusual leadership pathway--from journalist and sportscaster to auto industry executive and now elected office--offers rich insight into how far women have come and what's next for those who dare to want more. Read this book."
