Descripción del producto
"How Remarkable Women Lead offers some interesting ideas, such as learning to frame events in a positive light and to adapt to setbacks with optimism rather than self-doubt and pessimism. But some of the book's interviews with top executives--like Avon's Andrea Jung, Xerox's Anne Mulcahy and former Qantas chairman Margaret Jackson--are long on platitudes and short on the details of how these business leaders handled various challenges."--The Wall Street Journal
--Susan P. Peters, vice president, executive development and chief learning officer, General Electric "What makes this book singular and valuable is its wide-lens focus on the personal qualities that lead to exemplary leadership. Don't be taken in by the title: men have as much to learn from this book as women."
--Warren Bennis, distinguished professor of Business Administration and university professor, University of Southern California, and author of On Becoming a Leader "Here are the stories of amazing women leaders in the context of an imaginative and pragmatic framework that rests on a rich fact base. It puts to rest stereotypes we have about who leaders are and how to lead. The seeds for our future are in here. The new CEO is a woman or a man who is not afraid to drop the John Wayne costume."
--Gary Hamel, author of The Future of Management and Leading the Revolution "How Remarkable Women Lead is a book that will truly resonate with all women. It is personal, powerful, and revealing and thereby true to how we women live and lead. The storytelling makes this unlike any business book I know; these are people who have faced every challenge imaginable and still made their mark. So truthful, so revealing, it's a book at once inspirational and practical-a unique duality."
--Elizabeth Smith, president, Avon Products, Inc. "Over the years, I have worked with many remarkable women leaders. I know from personal experience that the talent is there, waiting to be tapped and developed. Investing in women leaders is not only the right thing to do, it makes clear business sense. Developing top talent for high performance is both an art and a science. Joanna Barsh and Susie Cranston provide the vision and the practical ideas to make this competitive opportunity a reality."
--Terry Lundgren, chairman, president, and CEO, Macy's, Inc. "Today's business environment demands fresh ideas-and this book delivers them. It is a great reading experience, with inspiration on every page. How Remarkable Women Lead has lessons for both men and women and tells them through powerful intimate stories. Is it possible to fall in love with a business book about leadership? Yes!"
--Gerald Storch, chairman and CEO, Toys "R" Us, Inc.

Reseña del editor
The Remarkable discoveries about what drives and sustains successful women leaders.
Based on five years of proprietary research, How Remarkable Women Lead speaks to you as no other book has, with its hopeful outlook and unique ideas about success. It's the new "right stuff" of leadership, raising provocative issues such as whether feminine leadership traits (for women and men) are better suited for our fast-changing, hyper-competitive, and increasingly complex world.
The authors, McKinsey & Company consultants Joanna Barsh and Susie Cranston, establish the links between joy, happiness, and distinctive performance with the groundbreaking model of Centered Leadership.
The book's personal stories and related insights show you the magic that happens when you put the five elements of Centered Leadershipmeaning, framing, connecting, engaging, and energizingto work. They include:
How Alondra de la Parra built on her strengths and passions to infuse her life with meaning and make her way in the male-dominated world of orchestra conducting
How Andrea Jung, the CEO of Avon, avoided a downward spiral when the company turned down by "firing herself" on Friday and re-emerging on Monday as the "new" turnaround CEO
How Ruth Porat's sponsors at Morgan Stanley not only helped her grow but were also her ballast for coping with difficult personal and professional times
How Eileen Naughton recovered after losing her dream job, landing on her feet at Google and open to a new leadership opportunity
How Julie Coates of Woolworth's Australia makes energy key to her professional success, with reserves for her "second shift" as wife and mother
How Remarkable Women Lead is both profoundly moving and actionable. Woman or man, you'll find yourself in its pages and emerge with a practical plan for breaking through at both work and in life.

Only criticism I would have is that it doesn't really go into a lot of detail on how you accomplish some of the advice.
The examples of what goes on at work really hit home with me. I will keep this book close by so I can refer to it from time to time when I need to re - direct in my work.
