5.0 out of 5 stars What Do Senior Executive Women Think about Leadership? January 27, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I know, respect and adore Dean Mary Hartman from our days Douglass College in NJ. She has taken the very top women in Corporate America and other institutions and interviewed them. The result: An excellent compendium on Thought Leadership. Some of the women are well-known and others less known. They all have a lesson and insight to share. Helpful to use their bios to stimulate conversation in either a Leadership or course on Women and Leadership.
