Donna R. Styer, president of D.R. Styer & Associates and professional executive, career and life coach, along with Cynthia C. Stauffer, licensed psychologist in private practice, co-authored Simply Be Your Magnificent Self! A Guide for Empowering Girls and Women. The self-published book highlights ways to cultivate extraordinary personal growth in girls throughout their life span, and women can benefit in many ways by simply applying the action steps in their own lives.
Intended to be read not only by girls and women, parents, relatives and friends of girls will benefit from reading it as well. The authors encourage readers to show respect for themselves and others by truly listening, making eye-contact and being present. The book’s simple organization and easy-to-understand writing style provides nine tips to empower girls and women with courage, confidence and authenticity, inspiring them to lead more intentional, mindful and fulfilling lives.
Styer and Stauffer interviewed close to 100 girls, men and women, and surveyed over 1,000 women. The interviews were an important piece of the research process because it allowed the authors to explore issues girls deal with, whether related to school, athletics or society. They also talked with many successful women to learn what helped them navigate through childhood to become confident, strong and accomplished.
