[Book Synopsis only] How Women Rise—Break the 12 Habits
Holding You Back from Your Next Raise, Promotion, Job 

by Sally Helgesen and Marshall Goldsmith, Hachette, April 2018

Sally Helgesen is widely regarded as a gold standard author and speaker for women in leadership. Her first book The Female Advantage: Women’s Ways of Leading has been continuously in print for almost 30 years. Marshall Goldsmith is a world-renown executive coach whose book, What Got You Here Won’t Get You There, focused on helping men overcome the distinctive behaviors that hold them back or even derail their careers. Friends over twenty-five years, Sally and Marshall have now teamed up to publish How Women Rise, combining Sally’s experience and insights with women in leadership together with Marshall’s framework for identifying and overcoming personal, self-limiting behaviors. Both believe that though women and men do share some challenges in common—given basic gender distinctions and proven cultural realities—the thinking and behaviors that commonly hold back women in their careers are distinct from those that block the progress of their male co-workers. This is a book that is full of remarkable insights for men but, it is focused entirely on providing women with world-class coaching for reaching their full potential in 21st Century business and non-profit enterprises. The fact that both authors are executive coaches fills the book with deep insight, compassionate awareness, and keenly practical advice for stepping toward personal transformation.
