Author: Sally Helgesen

Format: Paperback USED
ISBN: 0385419112

In the five years since Sally Helgesen released her now-classic findings about the unique nature of female leadership, business men and women have come to adopt many leadership methods pioneered by women:

• inclusive organizational forms that celebrate points of contact among people from all organizational levels and specializations

• communications methods that are driven by personality, not only by mission

• recognition of employee relationships as familial more than hierarchical

These "female" strengths that Helgesen names and analyzes have become the hallmark of key leaders.

Sally Helgesen focuses on the strategies and organization theories of four successful leaders: Frances Hesselbein, then National Executive Director of the Girl Scouts and now Executive Director of the the Peter Drucker Institute; Barbara Grogan, President of Western Industrial Contractors; Nancy Badore, Director of Ford Motor Company's Executive Development Center; and Dorothy Brunson, President of minority-owned Brunson Communications. Through direct observation of how they solve big and small tasks, she has chronicled their meetings, listened to their phone calls and conferences, read their correspondence. Out of this direct observation, she has created "diary studies" that show how these leaders make decisions, schedule their days, gather and disperse information, structure their companies, hire, fire. She has investigated how their experiences as women - wives, mothers, friends, sisters, daughters - contribute to their leadership styles and help build powerful organizations.
