Introduction: More women leaders, better leadership -- The 30% solution -- Modern myths and stereotypes -- The everywoman quiz -- Breaking out of the box -- Today's transformational leader -- Starting right here, right now -- Making women's power visible -- Lifting as we climb -- Wedging the door open -- Together, we rise -- Conclusion: Dreaming bigger dreams. From Publishers Weekly: A smart, illuminating work for women (and the men who work with them), this leadership self-help from prominent women's issues scholar and advocate Tarr-Whelan presents a discussion of women's leadership styles and roles rooted in theory, research, and a shining intellect, as well as thorough knowledge of the practicalities of the modern workplace. While some arguments are familiar (a future filled with women executives will benefit women and men alike), Tarr-Whelan also digs up men's strategies worth paying attention to-for instance, fostering tomorrow's leaders while climbing the career ladder yourself. Many of Tarr-Whelan's ideas are surprisingly simple, and at times counter-intuitive, but she's clear in her reasons for questioning studies that don't disaggregate results by gender: revelations include women investors make fewer mistakes than males-less likely to make trades based on emotion, more likely to use the advice of experts. Tarr-Whelan also introduces useful vocabulary to encapsulate her ideas, including "womenomics" as a mainstream business issue, and "first women" as a vital peer group. Conversational and eye-opening, with many narrative illustrations and concrete advice, Tarr-Whelan's text could prove an important volume for working women looking to advance and enrich their careers.
