Expressions of Empowerment: An Introspective Guide for Personal and Professional Success by Lisa Morgan Mosley is a non-fiction book on how we can take our power back instead of giving it away. Expressions of Empowerment starts off with a brief introduction to Lisa and the format and objective of this book, which is then broken down into small chapters and sub-sections. Some of the main topics covered include learning to be in the present moment, the importance of mind over matter, how to keep a positive and stress-free outlook which is related to what one eats, mental attitude, paying attention to one’s needs, the importance of friends and sharing, practicing gratitude, the importance of persistence and patience, and finally developing a sense of self-worth through all of this, both in one’s personal and professional lives. There is also a list of “Empowering questions” presented throughout the book that are meant to be self-assessment tools for self-improvement. The illustrations throughout this book are fun and provide a pop of color.

I thought Expressions of Empowerment: An Introspective Guide for Personal and Professional Success by Lisa Morgan Mosley was a well-written book and it is easy to tell that Lisa writes from experience. Her voice is clear and strong throughout this book and the style is assertive, yet without being overpowering. What I especially appreciated was the fact that although Lisa comes from a background of career coaching, this book is about both personal and professional development. I found some of the stress-relievers mentioned to be especially useful and I will definitely be making use of some of them. This is a book that teaches people to be self-confident and empowered while still remaining empathetic to human needs. I would recommend it!

Expressions of Empowerment: An Introspective Guide for Personal and Professional Success by written by Lisa Morgan Mosley. As a former manager, she has navigated complex situations and deftly handled key relationships. But knowing the value of family and friends is one of the important things to being fully alive. "Knowing others is wisdom; knowing self is enlightenment," said Lao Tzu. This statement is demonstrative of Mosley's mindset. According to her, empowerment is "authority or power given to someone to do something." Reading Mosley's advice will help you handle changing circumstances, learn from nature, view failure as a stepping stone, and give to those less fortunate.

The cover art has beautiful hues of yellow, pink and orange that reflect the upbeat, positive vibes of this inspirational work. Lisa Morgan Mosley is a talented writer who enables the reader to draw inspiration from a myriad of sources, e.g. nature, relationships, sports, hobbies and healthy diets. This step-by-step guidebook is comprehensive. The tone is friendly but authoritative. I appreciated the photos and quotations and the subcategories of the 15 chapters. My favorite chapter was Chapter 15 - You Have a Voice - because it emphasized respect for all individuals and their opinions. This could be used as a training manual or ebook for spiritual and personal development. Expressions of Empowerment is highly recommended.
