Summary

A New York Times best seller on how women can make it to the top by adopting the new rules of leadership. 

Women hold just 11 percent of the most senior-level leadership positions in US corporations - a number that hasn't changed in over 30 years. How can more women break through? Break Your Own Rules distills the six faulty assumptions (or "rules") most women follow that get in the way, then delivers the correlating new rules that promise to clear a path. 

For example, the old rule of "Focus on Others" must be replaced by "Take Center Stage"; "Hard Work Will Get You There" must yield to "Be Politically Savvy". "Play It Safe" must give way to "Play to Win". "Ask Permission" must be replaced by "Proceed Until Apprehended". This book:  

  • Features the results of over 1,700 interviews with executives in Fortune 1000 companies, as well as the authors' new research and ongoing work with over 5,000 professional women 
  • Showcases previously untold stories from high-profile women, including Ann Moore (CEO, Time Inc.); Susan Ivey (CEO, Reynolds American); Cathy Bessant (Global Executive for Technology and Operations for Bank of America); Lynn Ford (CEO, ING Solutions); and more 
  • Reveals what it really takes for any woman to succeed at the highest levels 

This hands-on guide is for women who are ready to transform their assumptions and join the senior ranks of American business. 

Foreword by Sharon Allen, former Chairman of Deloitte. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.
