Women and the Leadership Q reveals what many men have known all along: successful leaders come in all different shapes and sizes. The key isn't in gender, but learning how to leverage one's own style. To do this, women must accept, both intellectually and emotionally, their innate potential brilliance and blind spots of their own style.
Featuring Leadership Q-a 38-item, self-scoring, gender-neutral test, developed by Shoya Zichy and based upon the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator-women can identify which of the four profile groups best matches their personalities and then go on to explore which of the eight subsets, or specific leadership styles, applies to them. Bringing together a powerhouse team of leading Myers-Briggs test experts, Women and the Leadership Q includes exercises that help readers further refine their styles, build upon their strengths, and minimize their weaknesses. In addition, interviews and profiles of more than forty internationally well-known women illustrate the different groups and their leadership styles. Profiles include: Oprah Winfrey, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Margaret Thatcher, Madeleine Albright, Elizabeth Dole, Gloria Steinem, and many others.
