Women face different roadblocks from men as they advance in their careers. Their scripts are different. From early childhood, girls are taught that their ultimate success depends upon acting in certain stereotypical ways, such as being polite, soft-spoken, compliant, and relationship-oriented. So, women wind up acting like girls even after they are grown up. They have to learn that they have choices. Behaviors that were appropriate in girlhood, but not in womanhood, may be contributing to their career stagnation, plateauing, or even derailing from their career path. "Nice girls don't enter the corner office," says bestselling author Lois P. Frankel. Success doesn't come from acting more like a man, but by acting more like a woman instead of a girl. This book, based on leadership research, interviews, and insights from thousands of successful women, participating in UN Global Compact Network India's "Developing Women Leadership-A Roadmap to Success" workshops, will enable upcoming and successful women leaders to: Exhibit courage to speak to the unspoken Make decisions without being overly concerned with what others will say Turn weaknesses into strengths by leading with heart and vulnerability Leverage workplace relationships to their advantage Learn how to negotiate and say 'no' gracefully Maintain work-life harmony Practice and replicate proven skills of successful women leaders "She's The Boss- How Women Leaders Rise" is about empowerment. It is a must-have book for any woman looking to get ahead. It does not matter whether you are a young corporate executive, CEO of a start-up, captain of a sports team, head of an academic institution, or a political leader; this book will guide you to avoid the pitfalls women leaders often make in their careers, adapt to successful women's leadership styles, direct your destiny and move you into your company's executive suite.
