Alexia Parks delineates the leadership differences between men and women and focuses on what makes the female brain hard-wired to change the world in a positive way. Looking from a historical perspective, the author shows how women have developed evolutionary skills based on raising children, building community and being primarily responsible for the home. In today's world, that means women are superior in social bonding, fostering diversity, expressing emotions and having empathy for the plights of others. Ms.Parks concludes that women should be recognized and promoted into responsibilities that can best use their multi-tasking and problem-solving skills. While in my view she under-estimates the qualities of men for their willingness to be partners in the home (and more emotional) today, she is certainly correct that if given the chance, women can and will change the world into a more communal and less conflicted place.

This book really opened my eyes in observing the general trends in gender traits as they pertain to leadership. Not for a second does Parks discount or negate male traits, but rather highlights how general female traits can and should be used for leadership. Parks points out how these traits are a perfect fit for leadership in these times. I've seen Parks speak and she also LIVES what she teaches. She is a leader, takes care of her health (check out "Dr Joel's SUPER FIT: Be SUPER FIT For Life!") and also founded a group called the 56% ([...]) that supports women's leadership. The book makes it's point well and got me to start thinking about my own leadership!

Alexia presents an interesting argument for female leadership, referencing biological evolution, cultural anthropology, and more. The book is a quick and easy read, thought-provoking in its presentation.

Alexia Parks gets to the heart of why we need more women in leadership positions – because Vive La Difference, Baby! Just not in the way you think. Parks identifies 10 traits that differ between men and women because of our biology and our history. She carefully lays out the argument for why we need women in leadership NOW – in politics, in the boardroom, in science, in… You fill in the blank. We need the female perspective because it is different and complementary – not better, not worse. Research shows that companies with women on their boards have higher success rates, and diving into those stories more deeply shows that it’s because companies with at least women board members have better “societies.” Parks’ book is aimed at helping women understand the power and value behind their natural traits, traits that many of us have been taught to NOT value. I’d love to give a copy of this book to all young women starting out. Embrace your power!
