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.

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 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.

I did not read the print version.
Learning the difference between a sponsor and a mentor and what each can do for you.
I did not like the narration. Audio books are better received when the author and in this case authors read the book.
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.
I tried to like it, but it’s just a collection of the stories about some women leaders. Yes, there are always something inspiring about those leaders, but that can be well just be due to their personalities. The monotone of the reader is not engaging. It’s hard to tell one interview from the other. The voice is also not very pleasant.
same old stuff
real research not the authors preconceived notions; while pretending it to be a new revelation to her.
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.
I enjoyed this book a lot - research-based and filled with stories, it was great insight into how women are leading right now and how we position ourselves to lead in the future.
Life long student of life.
This is a good first listen as I venture into leadership books geared towards women.
There are many stories shared here to offer advice on key leadership qualities.
Wanted real tips about leadership not banalities and pep talks. Only recommend this book if you are very insecure and haven't been in the work market for a long time. Otherwise pretty patronizing stuff.
