Women and the Leadership Q A Breakthrough System for Achieving Influence and Power Shoya Zichy "I believe every successful person has had setbacks—it is the way they use obstacles that determines their ultimate achievement." --Kay Bailey Hutchison U.S. Senator, Texas It’s no secret that the key to long-term success lies in melding your entire personality, both strengths and weaknesses, into a consistent, effective leadership style. Women and the Leadership Q is a hands-on, compelling method for discovering basic leadership personality styles, observing them in action—and building from them to identify and make the best use of your own leadership skills. Author Shoya Zichy interviews leading women from all walks of life—government, business, entertainment—who share your innate leadership personality. She then helps you to uncover and understand your own leadership dynamic—and use that dynamic as the key to your success. "Sometimes, people will call me brusque and determined … what it actually means is that I’m independent and focused." --Christie Todd Whitman Governor, New Jersey To achieve success you must first embrace your own individuality. Women and the Leadership Q—based upon the groundbreaking work of Carl Jung and world-famous personality tests—is nothing less than a step-by-step guidebook for self-discovery and success. As we cross into the 21st century it has become clear that, while every effective leader is dynamic in her own way, there exist distinct and identifiable leadership styles. Women and the Leadership Q clearly defines those styles, shows you how to determine your own place within the style continuum, and helps you gauge yourself against accomplished women with similar personality types—enhancing your leadership capabilities in all areas of life.
