What Great Leaders Say About Fawn Germer...
Fawn Germer, female leadership speaker, has a way of reaching into our souls and bringing out the best in us. That’s because she’s had her share of obstacles and learned that the greatest potential is already within us — no matter how flawed or imperfect we may be.
Fawn is the only speaker to have personally interviewed the most successful women of our times — everyone from CEOs to movie stars to presidents, prime ministers, Nobel Peace Prize winners and legends. Women including Hillary Clinton, Martina Navratilova, Susan Sarandon, Meg Whitman, Carly Fiorina, Jane Goodall and legions of others.
From them, she learned what they learned the hard way. The biggest battle is the one we fight with ourselves. Once we learn to put our self-esteem issues in their place, we have the power to do extraordinary things. So, why don’t we do them?
Fawn is the best-selling author of eight books. The first one was rejected by every major U.S. publisher, but Fawn persevered until it became a best-seller and caught the eye of Oprah Winfrey. Once Oprah told the world how “very inspiring” Fawn’s book was, Fawn’s speaking career skyrocketed. She connects with audiences because she puts on no pretense and teaches others that they don’t have to, either.
“You are your own greatest asset,” Fawn says. “So why would you hold yourself back?”
In Fawn’s interviews for her books, she found that even the most successful women among us have self-esteem issues.
“That means it is just a game we are playing on ourselves,” she says. “We are meaner to ourselves than we would be to strangers or to people we don’t even like. If we don’t take control of our self-esteem, we limit what we accomplish and how much we enjoy the process of living.”
Top Leadership and Work-Life Balance Speaker
Fawn’s trademark — what separates her from all the rest — is that she seeks out our most powerful and accomplished leaders and asks them to tell her about their tough times as well as their major successes. What did they learn the hard way? Her message has made her an unstoppable force in the competitive speaker market. This bestselling author has keynoted for Coca Cola, Ford Motor Co., Cisco, Microsoft, Xerox, Kraft, Novartis, ConAgra, the International Women’s Forum and many other major associations and corporations.
Best-selling Oprah Author
Fawn Germer is the best-selling author of eight books, including Hard Won Wisdom, which Oprah held up and told the world was “very inspiring.” Mustang Sallies was on top of the bestseller list within two weeks of its release. Her recent book, Pearls has sold more than any of her books and is full of mentoring insights from many of the people she has personally interviewed, including Hillary Clinton, Meg Whitman, Susan Sarandon, Martina Navratilova and many, many others. She gets their insight on leadership, work-life balance, risk-taking, self-esteem, failure and success.
Credibility. A Track Record. And, She’s FUNNY.
