The business world is mostly made up of women, and the majority of students in business schools are women. Young women today are receiving the training they need to be successful business leaders, and they will be in high demand. But most top corporate leadership posts are still occupied by men, and women still make up no more than a small minority in the most senior roles and on corporate boards. How can women who want to lead achieve the success their qualifications merit? In DARE, trailblazing executive Becky Blalock show women how to find the savvy and courage to take risks, and ultimately achieve—and succeed in—positions of leadership.DARE draws on Blalock’s own personal story; during a 33 year career, she rose to serve as CIO at Southern Company, a Fortune 500 utility firm. The book also features interviews Blalock has conducted with powerful executive women, including: Ursula Burns (former CEO, Xerox); Meg Whitman (CEO, HP), Kim Cambell (former prime minster of Canada) , Gini Rometty (CEO, IBM), and Hala Moddelmog (CEO, Arby’s). Throughout, Blalock offers practical advice for aspiring women leaders, such as:How self-confidence, the key attitude for success in business, can—and must—be learnedThe importance of finding—and later becoming—a sponsor and a mentor, and how to do itWhy relationships are the foundation of success, and the often-overlooked imperative to develop strong bonds with peers and vendors.DARE is intended to take women firmly by the hand and nudge them gently in the shoulder, showing the way forward and upward. Becky Blalock empowers women to succeed with practical strategies that build relationships, promote potential, and ultimately create the opportunities on which great careers are founded, nurtured, and grown.
