Why the Best Man for the Job Is a Woman: The Unique Female Qualities of Leadershipby Esther Book
Synopses & Reviews
From Meg Whitman of eBay to Marcy Carsey of Carsey-Warner and Oxygen Media, today's leading businesswomen show how to make it in the notorious boys' club of corporate America.
Gone are the days when men called the shots. More and more women have replaced men or excelled over rivals in male-dominated industries because they possess the qualities of leadership that top firms are seeking today. Esther Wachs Book introduces the new Female Leader and reveals the seven key, and uniquely female, qualities of leadership that are turning the world around — and allowing more women to achieve success.
Filled with compelling insights gleaned from the country's highest-ranking businesswomen, Why the Best Man for the Job Is a Woman reveals how these exceptional women have soared to the top and captures their strategies for success.
Corporate America is filled with millions of women managers who are striving to become successful, effective leaders. Yet among the countless management books published every year, nearly none captures the experience of what it means to play with the big boys in business - and actually beat them at their own game. WHY THE BEST MAN FOR THE JOB IS A WOMAN is the first book to examine not only how the most successful women in America rose through the ranks, but more importantly, how they manage their companies to succeed, in many cases far more adeptly - and profitably - than men. It will examine several exemplary women from a variety of industries, including high-tech, manufacturing, film, television, and finance, in an effort to understand what they do differently and why it works.
