An essential roadmap to help you feel more confident, clear, and intentional in your goals—at every stage of your career and life

Early in her career, Shanna Hocking tried to do everything “right”: She spoke up in meetings, supported colleagues' strategies, and raised her hand for new projects. Though her enthusiasm helped her get ahead in some ways, pushback from others nearly derailed her: Who did she think she was? She shouldn't be so "out there." She should "take it down a bit."

What happened next is a situation all too many professional women will recognize: Shanna began to internalize the comments, second-guessing herself and holding herself back to make others comfortable. It took a long time—years, in fact—before she was able to see what she was doing and regain the power of being her best self.

In One Bold Move a Day, Shanna reveals the transformative mindsets that helped her regain that power, and offers a practical, hands-on roadmap to achieving your own goals with intention and joy. More than just a career guide, One Bold Move a Day shows you how a single, measurable act each day will help you fulfill your potential, both personally and professionally.

Shanna offers hard-won advice and insights gleaned from 20 years as a successful manager leading large teams in billion-dollar non-profit organizations and a leadership consultant to universities and companies, in chapters that include:

  • Bold Mindset Shifts
  • Achieving Your Goals
  • The Power of Uplifting Others
  • Lead from Where You Are
  • Be the Boss Everyone Wants to Work For
  • Your Bold Move Community
  • Putting Your Bold Move Mindset to the Test

No matter how small or inconsequential they may seem to others, the Bold Moves you choose bring you closer to your goals every day—and have the power to change the trajectory of your personal life and career. In the pages of this book, you'll find the support you need, and see that the best time to start making Bold Moves is right here, right now.
