Short Synopsis
How women can make it to the top by dismissing conventional wisdom and adopting the new rules of leadership The latest research confirms that women hold just 11% of the most senior-level leadership positions in U.S. Corporations today?which shockingly hasn?t changed in over 30 years.

For example, the old rule of ?Focus on Others? must be replaced by ?Take Center Stage,?   ?Hard Work Will Get You There? must yield to ?Be Politically Savvy.? ?Play It Safe? must give way to ?Play to Win.? ?Ask Permission? must be replaced by ?Proceed Until Apprehended.?  And ?Be Modest? must be superseded by ?Project Personal Power.?  This breakthrough book: ·         Features the results of over 1,700 interviews with executives in Fortune 1000 companies, as well as the authors? new research and ongoing work with over 5,000 professional women ·         Showcases previously-untold stories from high profile women including Ann Moore (CEO, Time Inc.), Susan Ivey (CEO, Reynolds American), Cathy Bessant (Global Executive for Technology and Operations for Bank of America),   Lynn Ford (CEO, ING Solutions), and more ·         Reveals what it really takes for any woman to succeed at the highest levels This hands-on guide is for women who are ready to transform their assumptions and join the senior ranks of American business.
