Emily Bennington is the author of “Who Says It’s a Man’s World: The Girls’ Guide To Corporate Domination”, and the founder of AWAKE EXEC, a mindful leadership coaching for women. Her training is based on what Stephen Covey referred to as “The space” between stimulus and response where she challenges professionals to choose intentional, value-centered actions.
Emily grew up watching her dad constantly stressing over money, and her mom financially dependent because she didn’t have a career. That picture of her struggling parents had a big impact on who she became later on in life.
She specializes in two forms of career transition: College students entering the workforce and women leaders entering executives management.
Emily has been featured in numerous business press including CNN, ABC , FOX, the Wall Street Journal, Glamour, and Cosmopolitan, just to name a few. Emily is also a contributing writer for monster.com and a featured blogger for Forbes woman.
