Women in Leadership: Contextual Dynamics and Boundaries

Front Cover
Emerald Group Publishing Limited, Apr 27, 2011 - Business & Economics - 350 pages
Women leaders in many parts of the world have leadership opportunities that never existed before as a result of technology, globalization, and demographic shifts that have produced more female graduates than in the past and created a workforce which consists almost 50% of women. At the same time, objectifying women in contexts such as sports and the media or the patriarchal ideology that permeates contexts such as the military and the church have changed very little. This book acknowledges and discusses the belief that the context in which women exercise leadership is critically important in shaping their leadership style. Each chapter opens with a vignette of an extraordinary women leader representing the context, including Angela Merkel, Carly Fiorina, Condoleezza Rice, and Marie Curie. What is the future of women's leadership in the global environment characterized by ambiguity, uncertainty, increasing interdependence and interconnectivity? Find out in 'Women in Leadership', the new book from award-winning author Karin Klenke.
