About the Book

Although author Yolanda J. Lomax had a successful thirty-two-year-career in the US Army, she longed for the mentorship of her sisters in arms who wore the ranks of sergeant through command sergeants major or lieutenant through general. She yearned for the opportunity to seek their professional advice, as well as have a sister to go to, just to share a personal moment. Lomax realized that as she rose through the ranks as a woman, it was lonely at the top.

In Teach Encourage Empower Mentor (TEEM), she proposes a military female mentoring program to encourage sisters in arms to plant seeds, tend them as the roots take hold, emerge, and break through to reveal strong trees with branches. Lomax believes when women teach, encourage, empower, and mentor present and future military forces, it demonstrates that no weapon used against females can prosper.

Teach Encourage Empower Mentor (TEEM) delivers the message that when women can set aside trivial bickering and display unity, they are truly a force to be reckoned with. It demonstrates that average females are capable of achieving exceptional results.
