More About the Author

I wrote The Glass Elevator because I was tired of hearing about the "glass ceiling." Breaking through glass is dangerous business. There's an easier way for women to get where they want to go!

As an Executive Coach for both men and women executives in Fortune 100 companies, I know that women (broadly speaking) share unique challenges in the workplace. I want to share the 9 must-have Leadership Presence skills with all women so that they soar professionally.

The Glass Elevator is light, fun, and engaging. It includes Ground Floor Quizzes, Elevator Workouts, and Power Profiles of women leaders. With this book, women can pursue their professional aspirations and elevate themselves one floor at a time.

I know you will enjoy it!
Ora

P.S. All proceeds from The Glass Elevator will go to Dress for Success, a non-profit that helps women achieve economic independence.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
The Glass Elevator allows women of all ages to "peek down through the glass" and gain perspective on the mindsets, approaches and techniques that have fostered executive presence for successful female leaders over time. Busting stereotypes and, by extension, double standards, Ora transparently (pun intended) and cogently highlights both the strategy and mechanics of creating executive presence for women-and anyone-who seeks to get further faster in a leadership context.

As the eminent Marshall Goldsmith conveyed in his review, this book is like a great executive coaching session, challenging assumptions, provoking thought,and fostering self-reflection. And as in any effective leadership coaching engagement, growth occurs in applying the many insightful and actionable principles offered in the book. In a streamlined yet value-packed fashion, Ora touches on, and links, important concepts surrounding business, communication and identity in a highly engaging and human way. This is the type of resource women can revisit over as they build new stakeholder relationships, as well.

Format: Paperback
Ora Shtull is a great champion of senior women who aspire to go further in their career. This book goes beyond the current research findings about gender differences in the workplace and offers great advice about what you can do to maximize your assets and diminish liabilities to get ahead. Ora covers a lot of ground and does it beautifully - with a soft touch. Her book is filled with stories, tips and tools for those who unwillingly hold themselves and their careers back.

Ora truly is an amazing coach and her coaching style comes through clearly in The Glass Elevator. It's part reflection, part action planning, part inspiration. Ora's leadership presence model is easy to understand, comprehensive and effective. The wisdom she shares will help any career-minded woman (or man for matter) get focused and enhance her leadership skills.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Susan Colantuono, CEO Leading Women on September 9, 2012
Format: Paperback
In her autobiography Madam Secretary, former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright describes how she often wouldn't speak in a meeting because she was afraid she'd sound stupid, but a man would speak her thought and be considered smart. Her advice to women based on this experience, "'Speak up!'...'Interrupt!'"

This guidance holds true for you no matter their career stage. Whether you're an emerging leader early in your career or a mid- or later-career woman who wants to take your career to the next level, it's important to speak up with credibility and grace. The Glass Elevator tells you how. It's full of clear, specific "how-tos" complemented by examples from real women.

Ora Shtull is a skilled coach who has created a book that is like a private coaching session. The assessment at the start of each chapter helps you focus your learning on the skills uniquely most important for you. And the concrete tips, tools and models that follow make it easy to acquire or hone those skills.

Going beyond many other books for women on speaking, branding or executive presence, Ora addresses in chapter 7 the importance of speaking what I write about as The Language of Power(tm). (See No Ceiling, No Walls ) She knows and makes clear that all the skill in verbal and non-verbal presentation won't enhance your leadership presence if you don't speak the language of business.

The Glass Elevator is an outstanding resource and its lessons will not only take your communication and influence skills to the next level...they will help you "Speak up."

Ora's book provides a straightforward, pragmatic approach to leadership in the corporate world. Although the focus is on women on the rise, the recommendations she provides are applicable to men as well. Having this book in hand will provide any ambitious career oriented professional with a roadmap of how to navigate relationships, meetings and communications, and how to improve those critical skills that are needed to progress in the corporate world today. A quick read and a good reference guide to have available at all times. I highly recommend it!
