The Books

The question I get asked most often is, “what prompted you to write a book, let alone two and on different subjects?” 

It’s really quite simple – I’ve lived it. What started as telling stories during keynotes at conferences and workshops resulted in clients asking for more time. I never quite got around to the task of putting my insights into print until two serendipitous moments with deadlines attached. Just Another Leap was published in 2014 and Your Connecting Advantage in 2015.

Each book provides insights and specific actions based on the topic. The content is designed to stand alone as well as compliment the workshops, keynotes and private coaching sessions with clients.

Just Another Leap

Joyce Layman outlines the simple steps you can take to propel yourself to success. Being uncertain about the future and, more importantly, your ability to handle the approaching uncertainties and obstacles is normal. Convincing yourself to take the Leap is not…but it can and should be. Thanks, Joyce for showing us the way!

Everything that you are familiar with today was once unfamiliar territory. There was a time when you didn’t know how to walk, talk or read. But you do all of those things effortlessly now. If you took a similar approach to everything else you learn in life, you’d be amazed at how quickly you progress. It starts by learning to leap. This book is about just that:

  • Teaching you how to leap, how to let go of the fear, embrace the possibilities and land gracefully even when it may not be on your feet.
  • It is about YOUR leap – the next one and the ones after that. These are the leaps you were born to take.

This book is NOT soft positive thinking and “just believing.” This is a practical, hands-on guide to a journey that begins with the first chapter and takes you on an active joyride through the very last page. Such a journey is not for the faint of heart – and neither is leaping. It is for the ones who want to grab life and take charge. If that’s you (and it may not be), this is the guidebook you’ve been waiting for. And it’s all Just Another Leap away.
