Leading on Purpose

The Black Woman’s Guide To Shattering The Glass Ceiling

Leading on Purpose

Throughout history, Black women have had to overcome sexism and racism in the American workforce to simply to maintain employment, let alone advance in our careers.

Throughout history, Black women have had to overcome sexism and racism in the American workforce to  maintain employment and advance in our careers.

Despite these challenges, our foremothers consistently exemplified strong work ethics and they overcame obstacles with a great deal of strength, dignity, and determination.

These foremothers inherently passed down their strategies to us, their daughters, granddaughters, great-granddaughters, nieces, goddaughters, and mentees, peppering their wisdom with common sense.

It is in honor of this tradition that Dr. Julianna now passes down what she has learned to you in the pages of this book.

Written about her journey from administrative assistant to CEO of her own firm, the book also draws together others’ voices and stories of accomplishments. Additionally, it contains the results of research Dr. Julianna conducted over the years.

Leading on Purpose is for Black women in their early- and mid-careers who are ambitious and have not yet arrived at their ultimate career destination. It is also for mentors and managers of these women who want to learn more about their unique perspectives and how to support their colleagues even better. 

Whether you’re an individual contributor, line or middle manager, or looking to advance beyond middle management, you can develop your leadership mindset starting today.
This book is written for the woman who:

    • desires to be more effective in her current role while also developing the skills required for the next level 
    • wants to be seen as a leader regardless of her title  
    • is content in her current position but wants to make a bigger impact right where she is

Becoming successful in whatever field you choose is not the result of “luck” or “being in the right place at the right time.” It’s the direct result of focused and deliberate hard work, support from mentors, coaching, sponsors and other allies, intentionally charting your way leaving room for the unexpected, and enjoying the process every step of the way.

This book will both inspire and encourage you to achieve your professional dreams.

Keys to Discovering your God-Given Destiny

Living on Purpose

Purpose. We all have one, but very few know what theirs is. In this powerful book by Julianna Hynes, Ph.D., readers everywhere will find the keys to unlocking their God-given destiny.


Dr. Hynes’ journey to success wasn’t easy. Her life wasn’t at all like she had planned. She was a single parent stuck in a job going nowhere with no clue as to her purpose in life. While attending a class, Dr. Hynes had the opportunity to reflect on her heart’s desires for her career, family, and home. The instructor then led the class in a visioning exercise that culminated in the participants drawing out their vision for their lives. From that moment until now, Dr. Hynes learned to take active steps to achieve her dream, while watching God constantly provide her with the means to succeed.

Within these pages, Dr. Hynes shows readers how to analyze their strengths and interests already imbedded within them to find their purpose and teaches readers how to overcome the obstacles that might stand in their way. By using her helpful questions and worksheets to refine goals and create a plan, you will find that in no time at all, you will be living your life on purpose!
