Overview
The book would consist of an Introduction and 3 sections:
discusses the purpose of the book, its value at this point in time, who is the audience for this book and the pros and cons of addressing the issue of developing women's leadership
contains practical suggestions on what male and female bosses can do to help develop women leaders, what women can do to develop themselves and other women leaders, and what organizations can do to retain and develop their talented women
Research results from interviews conducted by the author with top executive women and men on the important actions women can take to achieve success in today's organizations will be woven through this section along with highlights from other pertinent research on the topic of gender and leadership
contains first-hand accounts from highly-successful women of the experience of various leadership development initiatives that have contributed the most to their success, such as leadership programs, mentoring, and executive coaching
A final chapter discusses future directions for further work in this area, particularly as it relates to the changing demographics of a global workforce. ..
The first several chapters address the issue of why there is a special focus on developing women leaders, the need for a practical guide for use by management people in organizations and for women (women may feel less equipped to compete with larger numbers of males, they have had few role models from whom they can learn what leadership looks like, they have experienced gender differences in socialization practices, there may be fewer numbers and greater isolation of women in their organizations, there may have been a history of perceived lack of support from the organization and/or difficulties finding mentors)
will also address how leadership development may be defined, the benefits of developing talented women for both the individual and the organization, situations which benefit from leadership development (changes in the nature and scope of work, high-potentials, its use in conjunction with executive education, women on stretch assignments, use at differing levels in the organization), and what can be gained by organizations in developing their women leaders..
The chapters in this section will offer practical suggestions for the target audience based on the professional knowledge base of I/O Psychology and the results of the author's interviews and will include suggested actions that can be taken by managers, talented women, and organizations
Interspersed in this section will be the findings from interviews with top executive women and men in Fortune 500 companies and universities
The topic areas discussed in the interviews are: the competencies needed for success in today's business world, what these highly successful executives have had to learn in order to succeed, what have been their key experiences in their development as executives, what they have found to be helpful in developing their female executives, their views of what managers and organizations can do to develop talented women, and other relevant issues
Also woven into this section containing practical suggestions will be support from other relevant research areas, such as the impact of gender on leadership, learning, and development...
will contain case studies that are brief (2 to 5 pages), first-hand accounts from several high-achieving women describing their own experiences of being involved in leadership development initiatives such as leadersh
