“A quote attributed to President John F. Kennedy states, ‘Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future’. The way we choose to show up and react to our own personal and professional challenges will have a major impact on our brand and future success. I highly recommend this book to anyone who feels that their life’s challenges are negatively impacting the achievement of their goals.”

“Nancy Capistran’s Open Your Eyes and LEAD offers us a new way to embrace a strategic change in how we think about leadership and our leaders today. As an international law firm with a strong set of core values, Nancy’s straight talk on how to create a positive and diverse work culture mirrors our firm’s goals and, importantly, helps to set a path on how to achieve them. Drawing on her professional and personal experience, Capistran’s ‘in the trenches’ writing style is refreshing. I found myself underlining numerous passages that will help me become a better leader within my own practice group at the firm and advisor to my clients, and that I’m sure will aid me in my personal life as well.”
