To the Top: How Women in Corporate Leadership Are Rewriting the Rules for Success (Hardcover)
The Next-Generation Women Leadership Playbook
In To the Top: How Women in Corporate Leadership Are Rewriting the Rules for Success, accomplished leadership advisor Jenna Fisher reveals how the world faces a once-in-a-generation opportunity to close the gender gap at the top of organizations today.
You'll discover how traits often held by women--including compassion, empathy, communication, mentorship, and collaboration--are now in high demand. And why, in this time of volatility and disruption, women are standing on the most solid foundation for success than ever before.
Drawing on scientific research and the powerful stories of women business leaders who have already made it to the top, the book sets out how we can seize this opportunity in front of us. You'll learn:
- Why corporate progress for women has historically been stubbornly slow and strategies for breaking through systemic biases to take a seat at the top table
- Why women are particularly well-suited to lead companies through the complex challenges facing our world
- The specific leadership skills that are in high demand and how to develop a compassionate and commanding leadership presence
- The stories of women business leaders at the top of organizations today--their success, their missteps, and their lessons for success
An essential and insightful treatment of women leadership in a world that desperately needs more of it, To the Top is the first book since Lean In that promises to energize and accelerate the potential of woman leaders everywhere.
