"How Remarkable Women Lead"

The Women in Law Committee has begun a Leadership Training program.  The program has reading, writing, mentoring and JRCLS event sponsoring components.  We are test-running it on our Committee members.  We'll work out the kinks and then open it up to any of you who might be interested in participating.

The required reading component for our test run is the book, "How Remarkable Women Lead".  It was written by Joanna Barsh and Susan Cranston.

A brief description of the book follows:

"How Remarkable Women Lead presents unique ideas about successful leadership. Based on 5 years of proprietary research, this book raises provocative issues such as whether feminine leadership traits (for women and men) are better suited for our fast-changing, hyper-competitive and increasingly complex world.
"Through personal stories, the authors, McKinsey consultants Joanna Barsh and Susie Cranston, establish the links between joy, happiness, and distinctive performance with the groundbreaking model of Centered Leadership. The book's personal stories and related insights show how success leads from combining the five elements of Centered Leadership: meaning, framing, connecting, engaging, and energizing."
The McKinsey & Company web site goes on to state:
"How Remarkable Women Lead is at once moving and practical. Through lessons and insights based on the stories of successful leaders, this book provides a practical plan for breaking through at both work and in life."
