9783639087871: Breaking through the Brass Ceiling: Strategies of Success for Elite Military Women

Women in the U.S. military have found the road to the top positions to be a very long and slow process. This book is the result of a study on the small group of military women who have broken through the "brass ceiling" of the military to become General and Flag officers, and their strategies for career success. These strategies include, but are not limited to, decisions about career versus family, leadership style, behavior in the workplace, mentoring relationships, and response to career and personal challenges. While some recent research has focused on executive women in the civilian workplace, there is little to no similar research on executive military women. This research fills the gap in knowledge about women in the elite echelons of the military, and finds that they can have both a satisfying and successful military career, as well as a nurturing home life.
