      My apologies for a second email, but I found my books and figured I'd reference specific sections.

      Learning to Change would help you more than it would help her. It helps you to understand the process of change and how you can create a plan that will be effective in the end. This covers coupling intention and behavior (on her part) and also helps decide which type of process you want to go through to help her change.

      In Managing Organizational Deviance, you will find information on leadership and ethical behavior and how they contribute to one another. You will also find sections on harassment in the workplace (this would fall under sexual harassment if the comment about the guys finding her cute is true).

      There's just a lot of good info in there regarding how to manage those that partake in these behaviors. Both intentionally and unintentionally.

      If you have any questions, feel free to contact me!

      I have found two books that may be useful for you..

      Learning to Change by de Caluewe and Vermaak
      Managing Organizational Deviance by Kidwell and Martin

      Maybe taking a combo of both would help in addressing this counselors weak points.

      I agree with Dale that it is unlikely that she will read whatever it is you give her. She needs a "coach" of sorts to help her change her behaviors.

      It's not going to be an easy task, but I'm sure you will get positive results!
