Developing Leadership: Learning from the Experiences of Women Governors
Developing Leadership is a groundbreaking book that focuses on the lifetime development of ten strong, competent, and fascinating women governors. This one of a kind book shares the commonalities and perspectives of ten women on their own personal journeys in developing leadership throughout childhood, youth, young adulthood, and adulthood. These ten women reflect a journey shared, in part, by all leaders. Based on years of research, Developing Leadership provides a profile of each governor and then an analysis of the data gathered from extensive interviews with each of these women. It shows how they were able to develop the skills and abilities throughout their lives to become the leaders they became. If we are truly interested in figuring out how to develop strong, competent leaders for the future, then we must look at those who have succeeded in the past and those who are succeeding now. This book provides a blueprint for any woman who wants to learn to lead.
