We expect our leaders to be a certain type of person - a tough, heterosexual male. Drawing on interviews with senior executives, male and female, she shows convincingly why our faith in this traditional style is so strong - and so misplaced." "Doing Leadership Differently will be essential reading for both established and aspiring executives and managers. It offers a challenging and original analysis of why the traditional style of leadership has failed us; how men as well as women can benefit from understanding how gender shapes leadership style; how to put power and sexuality at the heart of effective leadership; and ways of widening the pool of Australian leadership talent."--Jacket." ;
