This book was also a quick read. Highly recommended!
1. What differentiates women who have attained senior-level executive positions from those who haven't?
2. What can women who aspire to attain those positions learn from the experiences of others?
3. How to close the current gaps and eliminate the current barriers?
Of special interest to me is the biographical material about Hadary and Henderson (their stories are provided in Pages xv-xvi) as well as what they learned (and now share) from 14 C-level women whose experiences, insights, concerns are woven within the lively as well as eloquent narrative. These women refused to "wait for the system to fix itself," speak frankly about the formidable challenges, used the eight strategies effectively, and now do all they can to help other women to achieve success, however they may define it. They represent a remarkably diverse group of organizations that include Pfizer Worldwide Research, Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts, IBM, Office Depot, and Medical Services Corps of the U.S. Army.Read more ›
I think every working woman who wants to have a successful career and feel good about it should read strategy 7. It will help them reduce feelings of guilt about working outside the home and make them feel better. It will also encourage them to make the kind of plans necessary for professional growth and personal enrichment, while allowing time for family and friends.
And to always, always, always leave yourself open to serendipity. Wonderful, life-changing events can happen, if you allow it. That's how I met co-author Sharon Hadary and my life has changed for the better since that evening in Palm Beach, Florida where we very serendipitously met. I happen to have been traveling with this book and she graciously signed it for me. I did not know she would be attending the conference.
Sharon Hadary and Laura Henderson are two incredibly articulate and intelligent women who are sharing decades of experience with us and I am very appreciative of their time and guidance. There is much to be learned from their joint effort in writing this great book.
