I was introduced to Kathy Caprino as a fellow columnist in 2014, and have since valued every opportunity to connect at regular intervals.

Caprino advises leaders, and female executives in particular, on how to rise and claim their strongest successes. In the introduction in her newest book, "The Most Powerful You: 7 Bravery-Boosting Paths to Career Bliss," (HarperCollins Leadership, July 28, 2020, and Murdoch Books, August 4, 2020), she describes her own major inflection moment.

"Back in October 2001, I heard these words from my therapist, and they were enough to change my life forever. He said: "I know this looks like the worst crisis you've ever faced, but from where I sit, it's the first moment in your adult life you can choose who you want to be in the world. Now who do you want to be?'"
