Finally, An Actionable Guideline for EVERY woman! 18 Sept. 2009
By Donna Klein - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Women Lead the Way is a powerful analysis of the status of women in the world. But it is truly groundbreaking in one way that many previous books of its type are not:
it provides a concrete guideline as to how EVERY women, regardless of where you are in your life - student, homemaker, career woman, or retiree - can impact the status quo and contribute to the advancement of women. Each reader should pay special attention to the "This Week I Will..." boxes. Easy tips on how each of us can make a difference.

"Women Lead the Way" - We need women's leadership and we need it now 7 Nov. 2009
By Sharin Between - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Thank you Linda for this incredible book. The conversation about why we need women has shifted dramatically of late, and your book summarizes all the reasons for it. Adding women is no longer just the 'right thing to do', but rather there is clear evidence that it is in everyone's self interest as it is a key to economic growth and prosperity for all. We are not fully utilizing the skills, wisdom and resources of one half of the world's population, and it is this recognition and this shift that will change the direction of our collective future for the better. It is about "critical mass" and we all have to embrace the strategies that will get us there. What is great about your book is you give everyone something to do. As an individual we can both know and use our power to address minor inequities that we face every day, and as a CEO we can choose to have a minimum of 30% women on our board of directors. Progress has been slow and that may be because we have not seen the need to change. Don't we see it now? We had a financial crisis and are still in the midst of an economic crisis, and by the way much of the rest of the world has always been facing crisis of violence and poverty. This is a book for everyone. Young, old, men and women.... buy many copies and give it to everyone and change the world. ( JZ )

A framework for my future 11 Oct. 2009
By Catherine Kennedy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
As a young professional, this book gives me a framework for my future with concrete steps and helpful resources that I can go back to. I am inspired by Tarr-Whelan's approach to adjusting the current expectations around how a leader should lead including her 30% solution. I can't wait to get started on Monday!

Women Lead the Way: Your Guide to Stepping Up to Leadership and Changing the World 10 Sept. 2009
By William Keyserling - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Powerful insights from a powerful human being. Linda Tarr-Whelan has made an invaluable contibution 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.

Women Lead the Way Your Guide to Stepping Up to Leadership and CHanging the World 14 Oct. 2009
By Steve - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A journey always begins with the first step and, all too often, womens' participation in the social, political and business arenas has been hampered by how, when and why to take that first step.

Tarr-Whelan's book provides such guidance in clearly understood language. Her examples of the successes of women in all walks of life provide support for those considering taking on the "status quo" to bring about change. Her strategies for goal accomplishment are readily customized to individual situations, from modest undertaking to major enterprise.

The book is a practical, easy to follow progression of ideas and subsequent actions that also helps build a woman's confidence in her own judgment and ability to make a difference.

The perfect gift for every woman on every occasion!
