Ellen Castro, battered her head on the glass ceiling at Exxon in the mid-1980s while scrambling up the corporate ladder. One fateful, dreary day in Houston, Ellen’s boss, Ray, called her into his corner office. As Ray doodled, he informed her he was blocking her sixth promotion in 11 years. Stunned and dumbfounded, she asked why. He simply stated he did not like her or her jewelry. The world she knew imploded. She quit during a massive reorganization a few months later. Within a year — call it luck, synchronicity or grace — Ellen was attending Harvard University to earn her second Masters.
The devastating, demoralizing, humiliating experience of losing her spirit and soul at work became her launching pad to living a life of excellence, having a rewarding career and enjoying a fulfilling life.
Ellen writes, “What I considered punishment was simply preparation.” Ellen believes we are always being prepared to do greater works. Spirited Leadership: 52 Ways to Build Trust equips readers to embrace inevitable obstacles and use them as breakthroughs, not breakdowns – to redefine failure. The 52 Ways provide a personal power leadership workout to success regardless of external forces. “We are our choices,” says Ellen. “Live empowered. Transform your life from the inside out. Dare to Be Greater!” For more information or to purchase a copy, please visit www.DaretobeGreater.com.
