From the Back Cover:

How did 'Paramount Pictures' Sherry Lansing, Ogilvy and Mather's Shelly Lazarus, and Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor make it to the top? Not by "playing like a man"! As you'll discover in Dancing on the Glass Ceiling, mimicking the macho leadership styles of successful businessmen may help you climb your way to the middle, but if you want to soar into the stratosphere of upper management, you have to play like a woman.

This comprehensive workshop-in-a-book shows you how successful women have reached their lifelong goals by relying on inherent, feminine-based strengths to distinguish themselves as leaders. Here you will find practical techniques for maximizing your feminine skills, including communication, team- and relationship- building, intuition, and the supportive mind-set that nurtures both companies and employees.

Authors Candy Deemer and Nancy Fredericks use real-life stories and advice from highly successful women and in-depth research to illustrate the effectiveness of this more natural feminine pathway to success. The book's insights, exercises, and techniques will help you strengthen and refine your innate feminine-based skills. You'll learn how to:

  • Develop the confidence to be yourself as you pursue and achieve your true goals
  • Identify your strengths and weaknesses through self-discovery exercises and introspection
  • Work effectively with the less-than-perfect boss
  • Match a company's corporate culture with your own personality
  • Maximize the right brain, feminine skills that make you a dynamic leader
  • Transform even the most mundane position into a fulfilling job
  • Reinvent your skills as you move to higher management positions
  • Bring more harmony into your career and your personal life

Why try to beat men at their own game when you can succeed so brilliantly by playing like a woman? Read and experience Dancing on the Glass Ceiling; learn to celebrate the powers you already possess and use them to make your dreams come true.

Go against the grain--and win--with the acclaimed wisdom of Dancing on the Glass Ceiling

"The authors have written a wonderful, insightful book to guide women to the top of the pyramid and to their fullest potential as leaders and women in the fullest sense of both terms."
--Mark Bryan, author of The Artists' Way at Work

"Freeing, insightful, validating, and, best of all, practical. Any woman who reads this book will be forever changed by it."
--Patricia Aburdene, author of Megatrends for Women

"Dancing On the Glass Ceiling shatters the old paradigms about women not being able to truly thrive in the male dominated corporate hierarchy.  This book will help career women design the work life they want and better yet, it will show them how to succeed at it.  Dancing On the Glass Ceiling is not about male-bashing; rather, it's about female empowerment.  Congrats on a refreshing approach to success by showing that women can be women in business...you go girls!"
--Neale S. Godfrey, author of  New York Times #1 bestseller, Money Doesn't Grow On Trees: A Parent's Guide To Raising Financially Responsible Children and Mom, Inc.: Taking Your Work Skills Home and Making Change--a woman's guide to designing her financial future
