Way back in ’73, she was one of the first women to enter the field of management consulting and had to face discrimination and nibbles like: “Why are you here?” “Who’ taking care of your children?” “What would a woman know?” “Hey, you’re pretty cute to be doing this kind of work”.
Where other’s would have given up, Kaleel’ a story of dogged determination and persistance. She went on to live a strong legacy – The Kaleel Jamison Consulting Group and even more enduring would be her book: “The Nibble Theory and the Kernel of Power”. Buy it and read it. It is a small book, less than 75 pages, but contains a very powerful message on self empowerment. Not only does the book encourage you to look at yourself deeply and grow, but more importantly, help others grow too!
A reviewer on the back cover of the book says “[This book] is an excellent resource for leaders, managers, and anyone who wants to improve their interactions with others”.
