Format: Hardcover
As I read this book co-authored by Joanna Barsh and Susie Cranston, with substantial assistance provided by Geoffrey Lewis, I realized that remarkable men lead others in much the same way that, as Barsh and Cranston explain, remarkable women do: by leveraging their talent, desire to lead, and tolerance for change within all areas of their lives. Barsh and Cranston characterize this as "Centered Leadership" within five separate but interdependent dimensions: Meaning, Framing, Connecting, Engaging, and Energizing. They devote a separate chapter to each of the five. However they are named and defined, these are areas in which aspiring leaders are challenged to attract the support of others. The greater challenge is to sustain that support. What Barsh and Cranston share in this book is what they learned from five years of rigorous and extensive research that involved hundreds of remarkable women in all manner of leadership positions.

What they call "the journey to the center" is one of the most important themes in their narrative, strikingly similar to what Bill George and Peter Sims describe in True North: a three-phase "journey to authentic leadership" which begins with character formation and culminates (not concludes) with full development of authentic leadership within five separate but related dimensions: pursuing purpose with passion, practicing purpose with passion, practicing solid values, leading with heart, establishing connected relationships, and demonstrating self-discipline. Hundreds (thousands?) of self-help books on leadership also invoke the "journey" metaphor while suggesting all manner of "phases," "stages," "dimensions," etc. What sets these two books (i.e.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. Written in plain simple language. Not only must any woman aspiring to leadership read this book, men must also read it to get a better understanding of what drives women leaders.

Format: Hardcover
This book does what it says in the title, tells you how remarkable women lead. Great stories and these are truly remarkable women. I did feel for them a bit being so busy being dynamic and successful and I would have liked to understand more about how they managed their personal lives in order to dedicate so much energy to their public success. Surely they have a small domestic staff? Quite inspiring all round, certainly wish I'd read it 20 years ago when starting out.
