With the right leadership skills, the highest levels of career success are well within a woman's reach. Unfortunately, conventional wisdom about leadership takes women only so far. Much of it is outdated, incomplete and ineffective.


No Ceiling, No Walls takes a fresh, unblinking look at leadership. It identifies the vital missing piece of the leadership and career success equations for women - the Missing 33%â%.

You'll learn why lipstick, diamonds and Gucci aren't enough and why interpersonal and professional skills are necessary, but insufficient.
You'll learn to:

1. Develop 3 crucial skills seldom taught in leadership programs.

2. Focus on hitting outcomes rather than just doing your job.

3. Speak the Language of Powerâ„¢ without losing your voice.

4. Cultivate your own greatness while engaging it in others.

5. Create your own career path with help from trailblazing role models and mentors.


In this ASK Leading Womenâ„¢ book you'll find inspiring and practical solutions, cutting-edge content, ready-to-apply tools and insights from self-assessments all designed to help you create the career you deserve - a career with no ceiling and no walls.

About the Author:

Susan L. Colantuono is the CEO and Founder of Leading Women, founder of the Women's Institute for Leadership at Bryant University and author of No Ceiling, No Walls: What women haven't been told about leadership.


For over 20 years, she has specialized in leadership development solutions for leaders at all levels. Through coaching for leadership excellence, leadership team building and leadership development programs, Susan's clients have enhanced their business analysis, strategic thinking, visionary leadership and interpersonal skills and produced high impact results. Susan was recognized for her contributions in this area when Providence Business News named her Business Woman Ally/Mentor of the Year.

When asked what leadership is, Susan replies, "Leadership is about using the greatness in you to achieve and sustain extraordinary outcomes by engaging the greatness in others."
She has advised women leaders in organizations such as Amgen, MetLife, SAIC, the US Bureau of Land Management, Pfizer, Fidelity, Dow Chemical, CVS/Caremark and Marriott International how to use their strengths to leverage relationships, achieve strategic goals and lead for value creation. Her proprietary leadership framework and coaching process produce extraordinary outcomes. Her clients describe her as intuitive, practical, inspiring, trustworthy, creative and quick to understand organizational issues and opportunities.


Susan brings a unique blend of business savvy, creativity, experience and strategic thinking to her work. Susan has consulted to organizations and/or coached leaders in the manufacturing, petrochemical, hospitality, financial, telecommunications, high tech, professional services, higher education, not for profit, and healthcare sectors in addition to local, state and federal government agencies.
Susan is an engaging, dynamic and warm speaker who draws on her many years as a consultant to create unique and motivating speak-inarsTM -- a powerful blend of shared knowledge, wisdom and experience combined with illuminating interactive activities. She has presented before groups including the eScription Users Group, New England Human Resource Association, Central Rhode Island Chamber of Commerce, the OD Network, Bryant University Women s Summit, Y Me? Breast Cancer Symposium at Yale University, Danbury Business Women s Forum, Westerly Hospital s WomenWise Conference CareLink Professional Development Series, the Executive s Group, Women in Construction, Brown University's Women in Academic Medicine, and the Hartford Insurance Group s Drive to Succeed Conference.
Susan's former positions include Founding Partner of The DELTECH Group, VP of Media Education for Markus Communications, Partner in The Consulting Group of Washington and Founding Partner in DCG, Inc. She has played an active role as a volunteer leader for the Society for Human Resource Management where she has served as the State Director for the Rhode Island State Council of SHRM and as Director for Professional Development.

Susan is the author of two other books. Build Your Career -- a guide for using the job you have to get the job you want -- was featured in Money magazine and hailed as "a comprehensive guide for charting your career". Her Make Room for JOY! has been described as "heartware and software for the soul".
Susan works, writes, rides, practices yoga and raised her son on the Rhode Island shore. She loves her family, the South of France, horse camping in Yellowstone and Lindt Excellence 85% chocolate - not necessarily in that order.
