I decided to write Leadership Roadmap: Discover Your Power to Influence the World after realizing that this topic is a logical next step after college and career goals have been met. This easy-to-follow guide allows for you to examine various leadership styles and provides distinct paths to help you develop and hone your skills.

In the book you will discover tips on how to become a more effective and intentional leader. Beyond discussing leadership styles, Leadership Roadmap explores crucial topics such as:

  • The significance of emotional intelligence in effective leadership.

  • Building strong relationships with team members.

  • Ensuring effective communication between the leader and the team and much more. 


"Leadership is perhaps one of the more repeated words in the English lexicon; however, I find that very few individuals can articulate what leadership means, or their approach as a leader—this is where Leadership Roadmap fills a void. This book seeks to explain core tenants of leadership in a concise and clear way and in doing so attempts to make a very complex topic more digestible to the reader. Leadership Roadmap is an excellent resource for individuals looking to add to their skillset as a leader. It is a comprehensive resource that infuses different approaches and philosophies in a seamless and fluid way. This is a great read for aspiring leaders and individuals in need of more language to affirm their approach to this important topic."

"Mastering leadership isn’t just about giving orders; it’s about inspiring and guiding others toward shared goals. Leadership Roadmap breaks down this process and also includes tips for dealing with different personality types.

A great leader handles challenges, encourages collaboration, and boosts team morale. Developing these skills requires continuous learning, self-awareness, and embracing diverse perspectives. Leadership Roadmap is, in my honest opinion, the perfect starting point. It covers all aspects and attributes of a great leader and presents real stories of everyday leaders in their own words to add context. In a world that craves empathetic, visionary, and resilient leaders, Dr. Oliver’s book is an invaluable resource for shaping impactful leaders wherever they go."

Career Roadmap

I decided to write Career Roadmap - Setting Yourself Up to Reach Your Career Aspirations, after moving from Ohio to North Carolina and realizing that the way in which I and many others were using to obtain jobs was lacking. The idea of finding a way to differentiate yourself from other job seekers seemed a much more logical way to go about finding another opportunity. In order to be able to adequately distinguish yourself you have to first know yourself and what you can offer and you also need to be able to communicate your message to the hiring manager. In the midst of the turmoil I began teaching Employability Skills and writing/updating curriculum for the same courses at a community college. Through personal experience I’m convinced that personal branding and clear communication of your past experiences are the key to success. It is through this book that I hope to make the search for a career that brings personal satisfaction much easier. I want to help others to find fulfillment in their career and ultimately in their lives.

Career Roadmap

“Dr. Greta Oliver has delivered again! Career Roadmap is a resource that college students and young professionals can use as they navigate: career exploration, being a job seeker, and changing career paths. She shares stories and vulnerable career moments that made me feel seen, a reminder that we are never alone in our career journey, anxiety, or failures. I see this as a book that folks can keep coming back to as they navigate the rapidly changing working world. Cheers to Dr. O for sharing more of her wisdom and knowledge with us!”

Ashlea Hitchcock-Francis

Founder of THE SQUEEZE

“This book is an authentic example of the real world career or job market. It doesn’t make the process of finding a job fluffy and unrealistic. The knowledge in this book will truly prepare the readers for their field of choice. Dr. O asks questions such as “do you need additional training?” This gives job seekers a real and mature assessment of their skills. The Career Roadmap allows readers to look at themselves in a reflective way, so that they can take the necessary steps towards improvement as they search for job opportunities that are meaningful to them….”

"Career Roadmap is an important book that will help many people not only find a way out of an unsatisfying work environment but also help them find a path forward that better utilizes their unique strengths and capabilities. As a senior executive who has worked with too many people in too many companies who come to work each day with a sense of dread or being at a dead end, this book provides not only a way out but a path forward to a more satisfying career. Dr. Oliver doesn't promise magic. You have to do the work. But she provides a concrete, step by step process to help put you on the path to a better and more rewarding life."

College Roadmap

I decided to write my book, College Roadmap: Essential Tips For First-Time College Students and Their Families, after seeing many family members and friends struggling through the process of searching for a college for their teenagers. I’ve also fielded many late-night phone calls from frantic friends who are late in the decision making process who’ve suddenly remembered that this is an area that I have experience in. I’ve also worked for many years with and on behalf of students so I embarked upon this endeavor to help make the college search and future of students enrolled in college easier and more beneficial. This topic is important to me and I want to help others as much as I can.

College Roadmap

"Greta Oliver’s roadmap to the many steps of college success should be required reading for anyone planning to attend and to succeed in college. Think of it as a portable mini-encyclopedia of facts and advice at each step of the way in navigating a complex journey--all from an expert in both the academic and administrative crossroads in higher education. We worked together for years and spent hours untangling knots in the process for students and their families. I see those years culminating in this expert guidebook that I highly recommend.”
