How can women become effective leaders in large organizations without sacrificing who they are, as women and as mothers? This book answers the question: They should live out the 10 characteristics of today's winning leaders. These characteristics — compassion, honesty, and authenticity, for example — were once seen as feminine weaknesses in the command-and-control corporate world. But today, in an inclusive and connected world, they define the leader who strengthens organizations rather than undermines them. This book comes from the voices of experience: over 70 women who have participated in The Judy Project, a 16-year-old leadership forum for women leaders who are aiming for the top.
