If it weren’t for my sister, I never would have gotten to know and work with Camille. My sister is part of Fidelity Women’s Networking Group and she had Camille present at one of her seminars. Based on my sister’s enthusiastic clamoring about Camille, I linked up with her and invited her to lead a presentation at Working Mother Media’s Work Life Congress. Camille led, hands down, one of the most popular sessions.
I can see why my sister raved about Camille and why our participants did too. She is charismatic, engaging, funny, and impactful. She integrated neuroscience and psychology with real-life practical applications to deeply engage her audience and lead them in active learning. Most important, participants left with specific pathways to drive change. Simply put, she was amazing.
Camille’s presentation on Mastering Female Leadership was dynamic, engaging and insightful. Her content resonated with women across multiple GE businesses and experience levels, helping us identify opportunities to become more effective leaders. Many of us wanted to hear her speak longer, so much that we are looking forward to bringing her back to speak again.
At times it is unsettling that Camille understands me better than I understand myself. She helped me to decode myself, to focus on outcomes, to simplify and to enjoy life more. The impact was huge: getting over fear of flying and building clarity about where I wanted to take my business and my life. It was beyond valuable. It was life changing.
When Camille takes you on as a client, she is beside you for the ride. She thought deeply on my behalf, challenged me to think bigger, and inspired me to expand my reach. For example, working with Camille, I raised over 100 percent of my nonprofit’s operation budget in the first quarter alone. This created space for me to think more strategically about developing my team, positioning my business relationships, and expanding my comfort zone. Sometimes with a gentle nudge and other times with a kick in the pants, Camille engaged me to be my best self, better than I ever thought possible.
It wasn’t just my organization and work life that thrived; my family life improved, too. Her systemic approach pushed me to navigate challenges and be more fully present with my children. Her coaching inspired several once-in-a lifetime conversations with my elderly father that I never would have had before. Coaching with Camille changed my life in every way.
I first worked with Camille when I was a new law partner trying to find my legs as a leader, rainmaker, and manager. She helped me find my unique style, build and hone the skills I needed to lead effectively, and challenged me to be more authentic in business relationships. I went from a service partner to rainmaker. When my wife’s father died, she inspired me to support my wife in ways I otherwise might not have had the courage to try. Most important, my relationships with my wife, son, and daughter flourished.
Nearly seven years later, at a new firm I was confronted with significant opportunity and politics. I reengaged Camille for the next level of learning and was appointed chair of my North American practice area. Through her coaching, I know myself better, I am more effective in achieving outcomes, and I have adapted my work to feel more fulfilled.
Can a book change your life? Absolutely. I use what I learned in Rewired every single day. Camille’s simple strategies for unplugging, recharging, and rewiring have helped me live and work with more purpose, more productivity, and more joy. I work better and smarter. I am more mindful. I am more present in my own life. I learned to set boundaries, to take time for myself, and to use technology the right way, so it doesn’t use me. Rewired rewired my life. I am so grateful to this wise woman!
Rewired offers refreshing insight in its clarity, heart, and scope. It’s more than about rewiring from technology; it is about plugging into life.
I just read Rewired and highly recommend it to my clients and friends in business, as well as my family and friends. Camille Preston, the author, helps us gain clarity in this crazy world we live in, a world in which we receive an endless flow of emails and information on the Internet. What can we do? We are losing productivity, fulfillment, and even enjoyment as we become slaves to the demands and pressures of this environment. Well, Camille says we must change, and that we can “unwire” and then “rewire” ourselves. Rewired gives very practical advice so that we may regain control. I’d say this is a must read.
Rewired is my savior. Once I picked it up, I couldn’t stop reading this wonderful book. It’s a quick read with great research and advice regarding how technology has impacted our lives and how we can learn to successfully manage the flow of being connected (i.e., wired). I’ve shared this information with my firm and have decided to work this book and its great information into our next consultants’ meeting as a new training and development opportunity. I highly recommend this book to anyone, both professionally and personally!
I loved Rewired. Camille Preston does a masterful job of confronting us with the self-inflicted powerlessness that results when we allow ourselves to be seduced by an “overwired” world. Unlike many who call for a return to a technology-free, bygone past, Camille challenges us to craft lives in which this same technology serves to enhance our humanity rather than diminish it. Well-written, highly practical, and extremely timely, this book is a must-read for professionals, managers, leaders—in fact, anyone with a cellphone!
