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.
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."
From tactical tools and how-to's to inspirational stories and exercises for personal reflection, The Glass Elevator has it all. Whether you're looking to get a promotion, rekindle your passion at work, or begin to search for something new, this is the one book you'll need to build the confidence and know-how to make it happen!
