RETAILOBSERVER.COM JUNE 2015 14 B O O K R E V I E W T here has never been a better time to be a woman. The number of female-owned businesses in the United States is rising. Women's natural skill set is increasingly valued in the global economy, perfectly positioning women to become today's and tomorrow's leaders. The percentage of women who are household breadwinners is growing. And education has never been more accessible to females. Yet in other ways, women's relationship with power is often fraught with insecurity. We want it but are unsure of how to get it—and we're reluctant to admit that we seek it. When we do have it, we disguise or hide it. And yes, in many arenas we still struggle for recognition and equality. Enter Leading Women: 20 Influential Women Share Their Secrets to Leadership, Business, and Life, a book co-written by Dr. Nancy D. O'Reilly and 19 other wise, accomplished women— including the New York Times and Amazon best-selling authors, corporate coaches, an Emmy Award- winning television host, and more. Within this book, readers will find expert real-life advice for breaking free of women's traditional limitations in work and community. Leading Women includes strategies for: • Going beyond your comfort zone • Holding your own in a male-dominated environment • Harnessing the power of traditionally feminine "soft" skills • Creating and maintaining professional and personal balance • Understanding and supporting women's equality • Connecting and collaborating with other women to affect change • …and much more Leading Women is an invaluable resource for any woman seeking to take her power at work, in the community, and in her personal life. It will also provide male readers with a valuable perspective on both the challenges women face, and on the many skills and strengths they have to offer. LEADING WOMEN: 20 Influential Women Share Their Secrets to Leadership, Business, and Life Author: Nancy D. O'Reilly, PsyD, is a clinical psychologist, motivational speaker, and women empowerment expert.
