Pressestimmen

"Linda has produced the first seriously practical guide to stepping up to leadership. Her clear, concise, down to earth approach challenges us all to keep moving forward and leading the way. Any woman [or man] reading this book can be left in no doubt of what needs doing and more importantly, how to do it. A must read."
- Rt Hon Baroness Catherine Ashton, EU Trade Commissioner [the first woman British Commissioner and first woman Trade Commissioner].

'Straightforward, empathetic and balanced, this compelling guide tells the stories that women positively engaged in changing the world will recognise. Though American in background, the messages are international and well researched. From the time of Hypatia of Alexandria through to the present day, women like Linda Tarr-Whelan do make a difference. Let's listen."
- Dr Melissa Hardie, Director, The Hypatia Trust Honorary Fellow, Exeter University.

Kurzbeschreibung

Offers practical steps for women to bring their passion, brains, and background to the power tables and make life better for themselves, their company or organization and global society.

• Combines compelling research, international experience, and fascinating personal stories with solid advice

• Tarr-Whelan has extensive background as a business woman, a government official, a non-profit leader, and a nurse

A few “first women” are making key decisions in high places but a few is not enough to have a significant impact. Changing what gets decided takes changing who makes the decisions. But with just 17% of Congressional seats and 14% of Fortune 500 board seats held by women, the leaders defining priorities and solutions continue to look and act much the same as generations ago.

Linda Tarr-Whelan marshals eye-opening facts and figures to decisively dispel the myths that still hold women back and shows women how to build their confidence and skills to pioneer a distinctive approach to leadership, one that emphasizes collaboration, communication and consensus. The proven tipping point, surprisingly, is just 30%--when women’s representation at the top reaches 30%, real change starts to happen. Drawing on her extraordinarily diverse background as a consultant, organizer, and diplomat, Tarr-Whelan offers a women-led strategy for change and a complete set of practical road-tested tools readers can use to become powerful partners in creating a better future in a rapidly changing world.

Closing the leadership gap is a win for everyone—it brings in new ideas, creates a more balanced and productive work environment, a revitalized social compact and demonstrable positive effects on the bottom line in business and government. Women Lead the Way artfully combines advocacy, research, and tactical guidance to help readers wedge the door open and bring more women through and up.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Finally, An Actionable Guideline for EVERY woman! 18. September 2009
Von Donna Klein - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Women Lead the Way is a powerful analysis of the status of women in the world. But it is truly groundbreaking in one way that many previous books of its type are not:
it provides a concrete guideline as to how EVERY women, regardless of where you are in your life - student, homemaker, career woman, or retiree - can impact the status quo and contribute to the advancement of women. Each reader should pay special attention to the "This Week I Will..." boxes. Easy tips on how each of us can make a difference.

5.0 von 5 Sternen "Women Lead the Way" - We need women's leadership and we need it now 7. November 2009
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Thank you Linda for this incredible book. The conversation about why we need women has shifted dramatically of late, and your book summarizes all the reasons for it. Adding women is no longer just the 'right thing to do', but rather there is clear evidence that it is in everyone's self interest as it is a key to economic growth and prosperity for all. We are not fully utilizing the skills, wisdom and resources of one half of the world's population, and it is this recognition and this shift that will change the direction of our collective future for the better. It is about "critical mass" and we all have to embrace the strategies that will get us there. What is great about your book is you give everyone something to do. As an individual we can both know and use our power to address minor inequities that we face every day, and as a CEO we can choose to have a minimum of 30% women on our board of directors. Progress has been slow and that may be because we have not seen the need to change. Don't we see it now? We had a financial crisis and are still in the midst of an economic crisis, and by the way much of the rest of the world has always been facing crisis of violence and poverty. This is a book for everyone. Young, old, men and women.... buy many copies and give it to everyone and change the world. ( JZ )

5.0 von 5 Sternen A framework for my future 11. Oktober 2009
Von Catherine Kennedy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
As a young professional, this book gives me a framework for my future with concrete steps and helpful resources that I can go back to. I am inspired by Tarr-Whelan's approach to adjusting the current expectations around how a leader should lead including her 30% solution. I can't wait to get started on Monday!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Women Lead the Way: Your Guide to Stepping Up to Leadership and Changing the World 10. September 2009
Von William Keyserling - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Powerful insights from a powerful human being. Linda Tarr-Whelan has made an invaluable contibution to understanding and celebrating the often unrecognized achievements of women and even more importantly she lays out common sense approaches for all of us to step forward and realize their leadership potential in the future. A good read. An important and well told story.
5.0 von 5 Sternen This book I can't say enough about. It was ... 25. Februar 2015
Von A. Gardner - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book I can't say enough about. It was written by a former U.N. Ambassador for Women's rights Linda Tarr- Whelan who speaks around the country. I had the pleasure of meeting her AFTER I read the book which had opened my eyes to so many things that I felt but never could actually put my finger on! It is inspiring, empowering and forces us to recognize that we, as women, have to train ourselves to view leadership through a different lens! When we recognize how we are holding ourselves as well as others back it will set us free to be the Leaders we were meant to be! The 30% concept: If you have 30% women at the table you begin to see the impact that can have. You can support each other in a way that being by yourself cannot generate. Too often men will talk over or around you. This is the remedy for that. We have seen that in practice with our Supreme Court that now has 30% women and the difference in the dialogue is clearly evident! I would hope that any woman that is looking for a way to have a voice in her surrounding network, from 15 to 90, take the time to read it! Women Lead the WAY!
