Editorial Reviews

Review

"Valerio leaves the reader with some thought provoking questions as to where we go from here. In short, the book is an important read for anybody committed to developing and harnessing women's leadership talent." (Work, Employment & Society, 21 November 2011)

"The book has relevance across the range of all organizations including major companies, academic institutions and non-profit organizations. It has significance for every aspect of society - business, government, law, families, careers, and health.” (Publicnet.co.uk, November 2009)

Review

"In any organization today, women leaders will help drive business growth and improved performance. Anna Marie Valerio’s Developing Women Leaders is a practical guide that helps organizations not only to achieve this growth objective, but also to create the right opportunities for talented women to develop their careers and to advance within that company."
Nancy McKinstry, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Executive Board, Wolters Kluwer

"Dr. Valerio’s thoughtful and thought-provoking book is essential reading for anyone who cares about the development of the next generation of leaders, regardless of gender. As a female president and CEO in a historically male-dominated industry, I recognize the value and insights offered in the book, and applaud the proactive approaches to gender issues in the workplace."
Nancy Hill, President-CEO, American Association of Advertising Agencies

"Developing Women Leaders is a trove of useful advice for the advancement of women. Many talented women whose careers have stalled at mid-management can apply the book’s strategies to move into top-level careers. Women and men benefit when we have the most talented people leading organizations. Valerio offers something for everyone. There are great "tips" for women who want to advance their careers, administrators who control access to the top, and for human resource departments that can help to increase the number of women in leadership positions."
Diane F. Halpern, Claremont McKenna College

Dr Valerio's book is a powerful and practical "how to" resource on how to capitalize on a most important business imperative in today's global economy; more women senior leaders. There is no ignoring the research that organizations that have a higher percentage of women in senior level positions are more successful. This book gives leaders, managers and coaches the tools to help organizations quit talking about how to go about gaining more women at the senior levels to taking the steps to make it happen. As a senior HR leader and coach I use this book to help my male and female colleagues understand and implement the practical processes to increasing the number of women in senior level positions and there for organizational success.

Anna Marie Valerio has synthesized decades of research and theory into this well written, and very practical book. The book considers the complex challenges and opportunities that women have in organizations, and that organizations have as they endeavor to recruit, retain and develop talented leaders at all levels. Women, and men, at any stages of their careers and in any role in any kind of organization, will benefit from the hard work the author has done in creating this invaluable guide to women leaders, which combines clear descriptions with applicable and relevant prescriptions.

Valerio's book may be a good companion to Sheryl Sandberg's Lean In. Provides historical perspective and translates 25 years social science research (6 page bibliography) into organizational strategies, best practices and tips for developing women leaders. Recommended read for CEO's, leaders at all levels, executive coaches and talent management professionals.

Format: Paperback
So, you need to develop the women in your organization? This is a particularly helpful book. If you don't have time to read it cover to cover, the highlighted "Good To Know" boxes that are set-off from the regular type are quick, easy to digest knowledge bytes. If you have time for just one chapter, go to Chapter 5, "What Managers Can Do to Develop Talented Women". But do get this book - it is extremely well researched and written by Anna Marie Valerio, Ph.D. so the research is spot on.
