Dozens of trailblazing executive women who broke the corporate glass ceiling offer inspiring and unconventional insights and lessons.
"More than fifty trailblazing executive women who broke the corporate glass ceiling offer inspiring and surprising insights and lessons in this essential, in-the-trenches career guide from Joann S. Lublin, a Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist and management news editor for The Wall Street Journal. Among the first female reporters at The Wall Street Journal, Joann S. Lublin faced a number of uphill battles in her career. She became deputy bureau chief of the Journal's important London bureau, its first run by women. Now, she and dozens of other women who successfully navigated the corporate battlefield share their valuable leadership lessons. Lublin combines her fascinating story with insightful tales from more than fifty women who reached the highest rungs of the corporate ladder--most of whom became chief executives of public companies--in industries as diverse as retailing, manufacturing, finance, high technology, publishing, advertising, automobiles, and pharmaceuticals. Earning It reveals the obstacles faced by leaders like Carly Fiorina, former CEO of Hewlett-Packard; Mary Barra, CEO of General Motors; and Brenda Barnes, former CEO of Sara Lee; the choices they made, and the battles they won--and lost--as they fought to make their mark. The extraordinary trailblazers you meet in the pages of Earning It and the hard-won lessons they share provide a compelling career compass that will help you reach your highest potential without forgoing a meaningful personal life."--Jacket.
