Build circles of influence - Seize opportunities they normally avoid - Leverage and promote their skills - Cultivate executive presence - Use data compellingly - Bounce back from setbacks - And more

With this powerful new book, women everywhere will find the confidence they need to step off the sidelines onto the playing field--and claim the success they deserve.

From the Inside Flap:

Even if you’re great at your job, delivering quality work, meeting deadlines, and working well with colleagues—when promotions are discussed, chances are your name never comes up . . . .

No, there’s nothing fair about it. But getting passed over is a problem with a solution. Grace Killelea, an expert in women’s leadership, sees confidence as the main roadblock holding women back. We’ve been socialized to wait to be noticed. We’re reluctant to speak up, take risks, and project an image that is as capable and strong as the work we produce.

The Confidence Effect shatters this “good girl” conditioning, and provides the practical tools you need to showcase your qualities and skills—without being cocky or annoying. Instead, you’ll draw from your core of competence to build a professional brand that attracts attention, resources, and promotions.

Packed with personal stories and lessons learned, key findings from the new science of confidence, and interviews with a diverse group of high-profile women, The Confidence Effect breaks down this elusive quality into a set of concrete, easy-to-practice skills—the Four R’s of Success:

1. Relationships: Build a supportive network of managers, peers, mentors, advocates, and others—and help each other achieve personal and career growth.

2. Reputation: Cultivate a reputation as a dependable, trustworthy person with whom others want to work—and repair any dents in your brand.

3. Results: Deliver the stellar results that fuel your confidence—and avoid empty promises and underwhelming outcomes.

4. Resilience: Overcome obstacles, process disappointment, adapt to change—and put learning from challenges at the heart of your leadership.

Confidence is the X Factor in career decisions and job offers. You have the power to change the way others perceive you. The Confidence Effect helps you stand out as both competent and confident, and assume the leadership positions you deserve.

Grace Killelea is founder and CEO of Half The Sky Women’s Leadership Institute, principal of Grace Killelea Consulting, and a sought-after speaker on leadership, personal branding, and professional development, who coaches women to help them achieve sustained professional and personal success. Previously, she spent 35 years in human resources and talent development, including executive roles with Comcast Cable Corporation, Lifetime TV, and other organizations. Grace is a certified Birkman Consultant and holds a master’s degree in human resources from American University’s Kogod School of Business and Public Affairs.
