Women Lead the Way: Your Guide to Stepping Up to Leadership and Changing the World
Linda Tarr-Whelan, chair of Pax World's Women's Advisory Council, recently published a book titled "Women Lead the Way: Your Guide to Stepping Up to Leadership and Changing the World." The book discusses why women's full participation in leadership leads to stronger organizations and can also lead to transformational changes.
About the Book
Linda Tarr-Whelan marshals eye-opening facts and figures to decisively dispel the myths that still hold women back and shows women how to build their confidence and skills to pioneer a distinctive approach to leadership, one that emphasizes collaboration, communication and consensus. She demonstrates that when women's representation in the upper echelons of leadership reaches the critical tipping point of 30%, real changes start to happen. Drawing on her extraordinarily diverse background as a mother, consultant, organizer and diplomat, Tarr-Whelan offers a women-led strategy for change and a complete set of practical road-tested tools readers can use to become powerful partners in creating a better future in a rapidly changing world.
What People are Saying
"Powerful insights from a powerful human being. Linda Tarr-Whelan has made an invaluable contribution to understanding and celebrating the often unrecognized achievements of women and even more importantly she lays out common sense approaches for all of us to step forward and realize their leadership potential in the future. A good read. An important and well told story." – By William Keyserling, September 10, 2009
