Collaborative Competition: A Woman's Guide to Succeeding while Competing The new book by Kathryn Mayer COLLABORATIVE COMPETITIONTM: A WOMAN'S GUIDE TO SUCCEEDING BY COMPETING is on the shelves!

Kathryn Mayer, a 20-year leadership development executive and former top amateur tennis player, believes that mastering competition is the key to success. She has developed a proprietary leadership model, Collaborative CompetitionTM, a skill set that leverages women's strengths as collaborators. Kathryn coaches you through exercises and examples which she has gathered from extensive interviews and experience with women leaders from highly competitive fields. The book shows you how and why to avoid falling into the trap of seeing competition as cutthroat and threatening, instead creating a new positive approach! While this book is targeted to women, it is also valuable for men as it explores skills that are critical to all successful professionals.

Collaborative CompetitionTM will accelerate career growth through:

  • Cultivating the strategic mindset and a personalized, healthy approach to competition
  • Forming partnerships with pacers who provide feedback, challenges, advice, and support
  • Managing challenging people and situations and turning stressful situations into competitive advantages
