Aim High: Chart Your Course and Find Success by Deborah Lee James
Hardcover (224 Pages)
Dysfunction abounds in America in so many ways, from continuous
turbulent change in the business environment, to a US federal government
polarized by an inability to compromise and fulfill its historic
missions, to personal levels where even deeper and darker levels of
dysfunction reside within our colleagues, families, friends, and
ourselves. Can any of us survive and thrive against such a backdrop of unsettledness and anxiety? Deborah Lee James wants to help us try.
As the 23rd Secretary and the “CEO” of the male-dominated US Air Force
(only the second woman to lead a US military service), Secretary Deborah
Lee James led a force of 660,000 people and managed a $139 billion
budget—larger than the GDP of more than 120 countries. In the midst of
unprecedented political dysfunction in Washington, she faced down
enormous challenges, including preparing military women and men to fight
terror in the Middle East, combating sexual assault in the military,
and responding to a crisis in the nuclear enterprise.
The Military Women's Memorial honors and tells the stories of women, past and present, who serve our nation.
