Chief Inspiration Officer: How to Lead the team Everyone wants to be on
After years of turning around struggling teams and holding a variety of upper level management positions, Val realized that she could make a real, lasting impact by teaching others how to lead. She honed her skills and experiences in the workforce by obtaining an MBA and coaching certification, and subsequently founded Executive Muse, a company dedicated to executive coaching and leadership. Applauded for her ability to build fast rapport, get to the root of challenges, and make substantive change, she emerged as a highly sought-after trainer, for both Fortune 500 companies and small businesses alike She resides in the San Francisco Bay Area, and if you met her on the dance floor, she’d be trying out a new move or encouraging her friends and family (plus dog!) to join her.
Whether you're gifting it to your ladder-climbing best friend or sliding it under the door of your least favorite manager... Chief Inspiration Officer explores the strategies and solutions that are available to you when creating or maintaining a strong leadership presence. With real-world, modern advice culled from years of experience in the corporate workforce, CIO bridges the gap between learning and being a leader. By emphasizing teamwork and not being afraid to ask people to dig deep to unearth and solve problems, this new addition to the canon of business books is a fresh reminder of the potential in this genre and in the leaders around us.

To not show people (man or woman) so I can remain gender neutral. To not have people in a suit or reference to a suit, like a tie. I’d like to avoid images of climbing mountains, boats, paper airplanes or rocket ships as I’ve seen this before in other popular leadership books. I like bright colors, playfulness. Something that unifies the inspiration and team (that everyone wants to be on). Thank you for all your creativity. :)

Other color requirements
I like the cover to pop with a bright color. I want to avoid using images of people.
It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their book cover.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
vawI collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
