9780066619866: Why The Best Man For The Job Is A Woman: The Unique Female Qualities of Leadership

Playing With The Boys--And Beating
Them At Their Own Game!

With revolutionary changes in corporate structures, a new leadership style is emerging, and that style is uniquely female. Gone are the days when men called the shots. Women are rising in the ranks of dozens of industries that have not been traditionally welcoming or supportive of females--telecommunications, computing, e-commerce, advertising, consulting, and information technology. More and more women have replaced men or excelled over rivals in male-dominated industries because they possess the qualities of leadership that top firms are seeking today.

But what are these qualities?

In this incisive and engaging book, Esther Wachs Book reveals the seven key uniquely female qualities of leadership that are turning the entire world around and allowing more women to achieve success in arenas that once were not open to them. These new paradigm leaders

  • Are able to sell the vision.
  • Are unafraid of reinventing the rules.
  • Possess a laser focus to achieve. Exhibit courage under fire.
  • Can turn challenges into opportunities.
  • Are keenly aware of customer preferences.
  • Maximize high touch in an era of high tech.

From Meg Whitman of eBay to Marcy Carsey of Carsey-Werner and Oxygen Media, from Martha Ingram of Ingram Industries to Shelly Lazarus of Ogilvy & Mather Worldwide, this book is filled with compelling insights gleaned from the country's highest-ranking businesswomen. Why the Best Man for the Job Is a Woman reveals how these new paradigm leaders excelled and introduces the world to a new breed of leader--The Female Leader--and captures her strategies for success.
