    schema:description ""This thought-provoking work examines the traits and stories of influential women throughout history to the present day in order to make the case that women continue to evolve leadership practices for the better. How Women Are Transforming Leadership: Four Key Traits Powering Success delves into the precise skills, characteristics, social programming, and biological designs that make women leadership naturals. Distinguished leadership author Mary Lou Décosterd identifies four key traits that enable women to excel in even the most challenging of leadership roles, and offers detailed tools and techniques for all leaders—men and women alike—to hone these same traits in themselves. This book explores the idea that a specific set of feminine engendered skills—intuitive orientation, directive force, empowering intent, and assimilative nature—creates leaders with the greater breadth and depth of skills needed for our complex, global, and virtual times. With more than 100 of the world's most powerful women cited, readers will learn precisely what enabled these women to become major players on the world's stage. Interviews with four leadership development experts add power to the book's voice and message. Features: Reveals the four feminine-based skills that promote success; Features tools and techniques for developing leadership acumen; Studies important women across history, industries, nationalities, and ethnicities; Includes interviews, quotes, illustrative vignettes, and speaking excerpts that show leadership skills in action.
