This is a unique book that is designed to provoke the reader into thinking and leading authentically.

It is a guide for anyone in a ‘leadership’ role. A CEO of a global enterprise, an executive director of a local not for profit organization, a coach of an athletic team, a teacher, the head of a household, and an elected official are all leaders in their domains. While the scope may differ, the principles of leadership are the same.

Thirty years of experience working with leaders in academia, industry, and community organizations has enabled Ellee to realize that the greatest source of wisdom lives inside of us. To be a successful and authentic leader one needs to be able to access this inner knowledge. Discovering where and how to look for it is the essence of this book.

Ellee has created a colorful, compact book with one idea, thought, question, or definition on each page. It is designed to provoke, to stimulate thought and creativity, and to inspire reaching inside and bringing out what is within. The book retails for $16.95.

“Don't be fooled by the playful and disarming style of this book – It gets right to the heart of the matter of how to be a leader.

“First of all I sat in my livingroom chair last Sunday after having a long day on Saturday with the woman that I’m writing my book with. I picked up your book and read it front to back. It held such relevance for me as I embark upon this project with another person (since I’m usually just solo in my work). I just LOVED it. It felt so precious to me, this guidance. Really wonderul, Ellee. I send you accolades on every level.”
Dr. Rhonda Emmert, Wholistic Endocrinologist

“What a clever, attractive presentation with great wisdom, guidelines, and insight. Even the busiest executive will find this easy to follow. I remember the management workshops that I have taken over the years, and wish they would have presented the material in a more appealing fashion. Congratulations.”
Ruth Oppenheim

“On the surface the first descriptive word that comes to my mind is whimsical. That’s the surface reading; the text is really quite deep and sends a helpful message, even to an old lady as I. Keep up the good work.”
Dr. Harriet Parmet

“Bears Can Tango ... is as entertaining as it is compelling, I keep going back to it for insights and guidance.”

“Your book will be a nice addition to any office or learning executive!”

“Even Bears Can Learn to Tango is great for my executive clients ... it's a book of dance lessons to navigate successfully in complex work environments."
