In this exclusive AOL video, 1984 Paralympic medalist Bonnie St. John and her daughter, Darcy

Deane, reveal how they got the idea to write the book they coauthored, “How Great Women Lead” -- which involved the two of them traveling the world and interviewing female leaders such as Condolleeza Rice, Hillary Clinton, and Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg.

“I wanted something that would inspire all kinds of women... to be passionate about leadership,” says St. John.

“One thing I found is that the women led with all kinds of styles,” adds Deane. “You can be yourself and be a leader. The talents you have are enough.”
