"Based on five years of proprietary research, How Remarkable Women Lead speaks to you as no other book has, with its hopeful outlook and unique ideas about success. It's the new ""right stuff"" of leadership, raising provocative issues such as whether feminine leadership traits (for women and men) are better suited for our fast-changing, hyper-competitive, and increasingly complex world. The authors, McKinsey & Company consultants Joanna Barsh and Susie Cranston, establish the links between joy, happiness, and distinctive performance with the groundbreaking model of Centered Leadership. The book's personal stories and related insights show you the magic that happens when you put the five elements of Centered Leadership-meaning, framing, connecting, engaging, and energizing-to work. They include: How Alondra de la Parra built on her strengths and passions to infuse her life with meaning and make her way in the male-dominated world of orchestra conducting How Andrea Jung, the CEO of Avon, avoided a downward spiral when the company turned down by ""firing herself"" on Friday and re-emerging on Monday as the ""new"" turnaround CEO How Ruth Porat's sponsors at Morgan Stanley

Barsh interviewed several women leaders in true McKinely analytical fashion and identified trends that helped women leaders get to where they are. This is full of stories and examples of how you can improve your own leadership skills.
