Speak up.
Don’t take it so personally.
Just make a decision already.
Every day, whether they’re competing in the business world or serving in a nonprofit, women hear that they’re not enough. They’re too emotional to lead, and the way they act, speak, and even think is detrimental to success.

But in Lead Like a Woman, former Fortune 500 executive Deborah Smith Pegues shows that your uniquely female qualities can position you for success—if you know how to use them. She’ll teach you to embrace 12 traits that can help you excel as a leader, and she’ll also help you eliminate 12 tendencies that could be hindering your progress.

You will discover how to…

  • develop confidence while sharpening your professional and relational skills
  • let go of unproductive thoughts and habits that sabotage your success
  • create a transformative, participative, and inclusive organization

Whether at work or in your community, Lead Like a Woman will empower you to walk boldly down your path of leadership and find fulfillment in the journey.
