Publisher's Summary

Based on five years of proprietary research, How Remarkable Women Lead speaks to you as no other book has, with its hopeful outlook and unique ideas about success. It's the new "right stuff" of leadership, raising provocative issues such as whether feminine leadership traits (for women and men) are better suited for our fast-changing, hyper-competitive, and increasingly complex world.

In this book, McKinsey & Company consultants Joanna Barsh and Susie Cranston establish the links between joy, happiness, and distinctive performance with the groundbreaking model of Centered Leadership.

The book's personal stories and related insights show you the magic that happens when you put the five elements of Centered Leadership - meaning, framing, connecting, engaging, and energizing - to work. They include:

  • How Alondra de la Parra built on her strengths and passions to infuse her life with meaning and make her way in the male-dominated world of orchestra conducting
  • How Andrea Jung, the CEO of Avon, avoided a downward spiral when the company turned down by "firing herself" on Friday and re-emerging on Monday as the "new" turnaround CEO
  • How Ruth Porat's sponsors at Morgan Stanley not only helped her grow but were also her ballast for coping with difficult personal and professional times
  • How Eileen Naughton recovered after losing her dream job, landing on her feet at Google and open to a new leadership opportunity
  • How Julie Coates of Woolworth's Australia makes energy key to her professional success, with reserves for her "second shift" as wife and mother

How Remarkable Women Lead is both profoundly moving and actionable. No matter who you are, this book will help you attain a practical plan for breaking through at both work and in life.

What the Critics Say

"The seeds for our future are in here. The new CEO is a woman or a man who is not afraid to drop the John Wayne costume." (Gary Hamel, author of The Future of Management)

    "Inspiring"
    Would you consider the audio edition of How Remarkable Women Lead to be better than the print version?

    I did not read the print version.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of How Remarkable Women Lead?

    Learning the difference between a sponsor and a mentor and what each can do for you.


    What three words best describe Pam Ward’s performance?

    I did not like the narration. Audio books are better received when the author and in this case authors read the book.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    I am only just over halfway done but wanted to publish the review in case anyone else wanted to get it. You should. I have not read a large number of books on this topic but I think it's was great. As a women leader you can't read enough the experience older women have and pass on. Most importantly it's current and relevant.

    "Took the Hay"

    I appreciate any feeding for bringing out the leader in me, giving more fuel to aid my professional endeavors and advancements. However, I am in the public service field and had to leave some of the advice alone.
