Publisher's Summary

Ready to take the next step in your career...but not sure what's holding you back? Read on.

Leadership expert Sally Helgesen and best-selling leadership coach Marshall Goldsmith have trained thousands of high achievers - men and women - to reach even greater heights. Again and again, they see that women face specific and different road blocks from men as they advance in the workplace. In fact, the very habits that helped women early in their careers can hinder them as they move up. Simply put, what got you here won't get you there...and you might not even realize your blind spots until it's too late.

Are you great with the details? To rise, you need to do less and delegate more.

Are you a team player? To advance, you need to take credit as easily as you share it.

Are you a star networker? Leaders know a network is no good unless you know how to use it.

Sally and Marshall identify the 12 habits that hold women back as they seek to advance, showing them why what worked for them in the past might actually be sabotaging their future success. Building on Marshall's classic best seller What Got You Here Won't Get You There, their new book, How Women Rise, is essential listening for any woman who is ready to advance to the next level.

Critic Reviews

"A myth-busting "how to" for the next generation of women leaders, and those who want to see them succeed. These ideas will transform our workplaces, our careers, and our lives." (Rita McGrath, professor at Columbia Business School and a Thinkers50 Top Ten Business Thinker)

"Extraordinary real-life stories of women who wait to be asked to the party, get stuck in their comfort zone, seek perfection, and assume their hard work will be recognized. Sally and Marshall show us how to get unstuck and to 'stand out' so women can move forward in more purposeful, powerful, and productive careers. This is a must read with great actionable advice!" (Janice Reals Ellig, chief executive officer of Chadick Ellig and one of BusinessWeek's "World's Most Influential Headhunters")

"Sally and Marshall give new meaning to the term 'dream team.' Together they have produced a masterpiece, an over-the-moon but magnificently down-to-earth leadership book for the ages." (Tom Peters, best-selling author of In Search of Excellence: Lessons from America's Best-Run Companies)

A timely and impactful read!

This is a must read for every leader who is committed to helping Women rise. I’ve read and listen to the book; I’ve also interviewed the authors. What I found particularly helpful, beyond the identification of specific habits that hold women back, was learning where the 12 habits originate, and how to disrupt them.

A MUST READ FOR FEMALE LEADERS

I cannot say enough about this book - I love it! A friend in my graduate school program recommended it to me and I can personally attest that this changed my perspective as a future #girlboss. I constantly recommend this to my female colleagues and friends alike as I found the advice, stories, and habits highlighted to be extremely relevant even in the modern workplace. I continue to listen to this over and over again to reflect on habits I continue to work on and improve.

Helpful and smart but terrible reader

The content and insights from these brilliant writers is fantastic. However, I find it hard to listen to. This has a really weird sounding and very paced voice, over-pronounced “shs” and “ts” sounds which I struggle to listen to for very long. I wish I could find this read with a different voice.

Finally an actionable female perspective

For years I’ve read books on how to do more of what I’m already doing. This calls out other “bad habits” while showing they are useful in certain situations. It teaches you how to keep certain things in check and explains the reasoning behind the method. It was worth every penny.

Helpful

While not the best audiobook, the content was still good. There were definitely a lot of habits I can work on to become a better leader, have a more fruitful career, and enjoy more overall success.

Not the book for me

This wasn’t the book I was expecting it to be. Maybe I was thinking more personal development type than statistical. I was bored to tears and couldn’t finish. I may have missed a beautiful turn in the book but couldn’t hang around longer to see.

So relevant!

Well written and easy to digest. A must read for all women who desire to go to the next in an organization or in their own business.
