In The Diamond Advantage Dr. Heather Simone brilliantly presents her PRISM Framework with supporting examples of transformational leadership and the benefits of a diverse corporate culture, highlighting the importance of aligning core values and beliefs with personal action to achieve one’s authentic success.

Her Fortune 100 success story underscores the persistent drive and pressure one must withstand to achieve next level success. This dedicated climb, especially coming from a woman of color in the corporate 100 space, is a perfect analogy to the pressure a diamond must withstand to reveal its unique luminescent beauty. I couldn’t help but sing “Shine on you crazy diamond” throughout this book as Dr. Simone encourages leaders, rising stars, and entrepreneurs to strategically plan their unique path to success.
