About Aim High: Chart Your Course and Find Success

As the 23rd Secretary of the Air Force (only the second woman to lead a US military service) and a successful business leader, Deborah Lee James reveals in Aim High: Chart Your Course and Find Success her formula for success, using challenges to grow stronger, and staying true to herself and her goals. Ultimately, her three-part strategy has allowed her to thrive as a leader in government and business, and as a mother and wife.

In Aim High: Chart Your Course and Find Success, Deborah shares her personal and professional challenges, outcomes, strategies for success, and the problem-solving principles she used to overcome the daunting pressures, threats, and challenges that come with rising to the top of the US Armed Forces.
