Synopsis: Talk to anyone who went to Catholic grade school and you'll quickly learn that it had a tremendous influence on who they are and what they believe. The process of becoming a leader forces all of us to draw on our past, whether we grew up going to Catholic school or playing basketball in Indiana. The rules, values, and boundaries you learned early on in school and at home affect how you react in another similar structure, in this case, the workplace.

Through a combination of humor and self-examination, this book helps you explore the impact your early experiences had and continue to have on you. The style and appeal of this book is fun, whimsical, and serious all at the same time, and the messages are squarely rooted in a leadership development process based on learning and behavioral change models.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.: Oh when the saints... "So what's required for true leadership development? When we were young Catholic girls we wanted to be saints. Saints weren't just meek little souls. They had guts, they took risks, they held strongly to their beliefs. At work you absorb the corporate war stories and you're enthralled by tales of mythical figures who climbed up the ranks to coveted leadership positions. You find a hero to emulate or a sinner to shun.

This on-the-job discovery of what's involved in becoming a leader parallels the process of your early Catholic education. It may not have seemed like a process when you were in Catholic grade school, but don't be fooled. It was formal and structured. It was a methodical journey, step-by-step, prayer-by-prayer, May Crowning-by-May Crowning, all designed to create the "perfect" Catholic girl. Leadership development isn't nearly as rigid, we really aren't into crowns vestments, and the liberal use of holy water, but it does require some degree of formality and structure.

In those formative Catholic schoolgirl years we were obsessed with one fear, burning in hell. As women in the work force, we're obsessed with one fear, turning to Jell-O(. And we're not talking about eating too much chocolate pudding after a heard day at the office. (Although it may qualify for as another obsession.) It's very simple. We really don't want to fail. To overcome this fear we believed that if we worked really hard at being good (or at least invisible), we'd be okay. That seems easy. Except what is the definition of 'being good"?

As young Catholic girls, we were taught to strive for goodness at all times. Goodness meant choosing the right path for your life, both spiritual and corporeal. You could be a nun (career path), or you could be like the Blessed Mother (the at-home mom) but preferably with about 12 more kids. The saving grace was that you weren't supposed to do both at the same time. So, no matter which route you chose, the learning and development path was clear. Life seemed manageable there was clear focus and purpose.
