NAPW In the Studio’s September interview is a must-see segment for anyone in or striving to be in a leadership position. Dr. Anna Rowley, author of Leadership Therapy: Inside the Mind of Microsoft, draws on years of research working within high-profile corporate environments to reveal the steps one must take to become a successful leader. Robin Dorian, the host of the National Association of Professional Women’s (NAPW) online program, NAPW In the Studio, captures Anna’s recommendations for taking the next step up the career ladder and thriving as a leader.

“Anna Rowley is one of the most insightful guests we have had the opportunity to interview on our program,” says Nicole Zeitzer-Johnson. “As a psychologist, she addresses many of the self-imposed barriers managers often experience, which hinder their effectiveness as leaders and the performance of their team. And she does this in a remarkably intelligible manner. ”

According to Rowley, “self-awareness is the one most important thing that any leader, male or female, really needs to manage.” She explains how someone can examine who they really are. Later in the interview, Dr. Rowley talks about some of the most essential personality traits of a successful leader including resilience, the ability to manage people, inquisitiveness, and a drive to make a difference.

Dr. Anna Rowley is the co-founder of Rowley Associates, an international consultancy that works with clients ranging from large Fortune 100 companies to individuals looking to improve their performance. Rowley Associates uses the arts of science and psychotherapy to drive business and leadership performance. Dr. Rowley is also the author of the highly acclaimed book Leadership Therapy: Inside the Mind of Microsoft. Anna has a Ph.D. from London University and is a sought-after speaker and consultant for many top Fortune 100 and Fortune 500 companies.
