"Destined to Lead is an astounding work  - not just the best business book of the year, it's destined to become a classic on the topic of leadership behavior!

A must read for any leader  - and those who aspire to get there. I wouldn't be where I am without her." - Pierre Brondeau, Chairman and CEO, FMC

"As one of the true pioneers in executive coaching, Wasylyshyn marries her background in clinical psychology with real world experience to help senior executives reach their highest potential. And we hear their stories not only through Wasylyshyn's experienced lens...but from her clients' voices as well. Truly an important and defining work in the field." - Lois Juliber, Retired Vice Chairman and Chief Operating Officer, Colgate-Palmolive

"Wasylyshyn has once again broken new ground in the field of executive coaching and leadership development. From her earlier career as a business leader, Wasyshlyn brings deep and pragmatic knowledge of business and industry. From her extensive experience as a coach to top corporate leaders she has been, and continues to be, a pioneer in her field of consulting psychology. With this compelling book – a must read for anyone involved with the development of senior business leaders  - Wasyshylyn has taken us 'behind the executive door' and provided a rare opportunity to witness the power of transformational coaching in action." - Tom Kaney, Managing Partner, McKnight-Kaney

"The case studies in Destined to Lead take us into the depth of the work of a true master in the field of executive coaching. Through her stunning approach, Wasylyshyn has not only developed great leaders, she has taken a dramatically quantum leap from what even the best psychotherapy could accomplish." - Paul F. Koprowski, Family Business Advisor

"Wasylyshyn is an extraordinary gift to the business world. She is a transformational advisor to some of America's top business leaders, and her books and treatises illustrate the rare insight and complete understanding she brings to each engagement. This book, even more than her others, gives clear evidence of the impact she has had in hundreds of executive engagements in her distinguished career. Her astute observations are a testimonial to the rare and wonderful legacy of her involvement. You will see...there is no one who has done more to improve business leadership in our era!" - Stephanie W. Naidoff, former President and CEO, Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts, Philadelphia, USA

"Since becoming CEO of GlaxoSmithKline, I have seen close up the value that Wasylyshyn has helped unlock in the company's senior leaders over nearly two decades. This book is not only a testimony of her uncommon capabilities in helping senior business leaders realize the full extent of their capabilities, it also provides a rare and provocative look at exactly how Wasylyshyn  - as a master coach and trusted advisor  - engaged her clients in a manner that accelerated both their growth and sustained effectiveness." - Sir Andrew Witty, CEO, GlaxoSmithKline
