Remember when women were supposed to behave like men in business? Fortunately everyone now knows better, and the number of women heading companies or serving on boards has increased. Here Werhane (business ethics, DePaul U.) and her co-authors report on their interviews with 22 top women executives, detailing their commitment and perseverance in the face of what must have seemed at the time to be insurmountable odds. The subjects address such issues as developing an empowering leadership model, growing the values-based enterprise, harnessing the power of coaching, leading through workplace engagement or through values-based teams, balancing family and firm, breaking down barriers in executive searches, building a culture of trust and communication and leading a learning organization. Both the interviewers and the interviewed firmly avoid clichés and stereotypes, making this lively and deeply informative. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
