My new leadership book SHE Rises is available!


52 lessons to take your leadership to the next level

As an executive coach, I’ve made it my mission to unlock the hidden potential within women and help them rise into positions of power—EXACTLY where they belong.

For over a decade, I’ve coached more than 500 female leaders past internal challenges, through corporate ceilings and over systemic hurdles to successfully lead from the front in companies like Google, Apple, Amazon and Pixar. 

This book is the culmination of the powerful lessons I’ve learned and taught along the way, and I have one simple aim with creating it: To not only shine my own light, but show you how fucking bright yours is.


“…a fantastic leadership book…”

I love everything about this book! It can be used as a quick read for encouragement and words of wisdom. The lessons are brief enough to read through as a field manual of sorts, to gain nice insights a little or a lot at a time.

I also find myself returning to this book as a journal prompt, if you will. A lot of the sections are so thought provoking, especially if you take the time to dig deep into certain lessons that speak to you.

Pooja has written a fantastic leadership book, for women who want to succeed in any and all aspects of their lives. I love her questions and badass attitude – and am so thankful for this resource she has created and shared.

“…the wisdom and words are great thought starters…”

I’ve worked with Pooja as my coach for many years and she is my trusted advisor who has seen me through some tough times and supported me through some major breakthroughs and successes in work and in the real world.

The book is broken out into themes and sections that reflect Pooja’s experiences and observations – I see myself in many and others I have yet to experience, but the wisdom and words are great thought starters and discussion topics for women leaders in the workforce … who also have lives beyond work!
