Her Place at the Table is a practical guide for any woman dealing with a demanding role. Drawing on extensive interviews with women leaders, the authors isolate five key challenges.
Intelligence -- to make informed decisions you need good information, but getting it can be a tricky proposition for women.
Backing -- no one wants to take on a tough job without the support of major players, but you can't take those allies for granted.
Resources -- allocations don?t always square with the results expected.
Buy-In -- you can't lead if no one wants to follow, but bringing a team on board can be problematic.
Making a Difference -- the value you create must be visible before it makes a difference.
“Does she have the right stuff? That question follows women whenever they are promoted to visible leadership positions. Her Place at the Table lays out the pragmatic moves that can help any woman in business show she has the right stuff. I encourage all women with leadership aspirations to use this book as a guide.”
