Useful Leadership Lessons

We started this blog, Escape From Corporate America, because so many women are fed up with Corporate America.  Yet, many women decide to stay in Corporate America by choice because whatever the setbacks in their careers, these challenges often provide useful leadership lessons that help propel their ascent and success.  That's the case with a new book by Joann S. Lublin.

Pulitzer prize-winning journalist Joann S. Lublin, author of the new book, Earning It:  Hard-Won Lessons from Trailblazing Women at the Top of the Business World, shares many real-life and compelling stories about workplace experiences and moving up advice from more than 50 corporate female leaders.  Some of the inspirational leaders featured in the book include Mary Dillon, CEO of Ultra, Virginia Rometty, CEO of IBM, and Mary Barra, CEO of General Motors, to name just a few.

Whether you are an entrepreneur or corporate executive and you want to know what to do or what not  to do when you confront the challenges of the workplace, this book offers great practical advice in every chapter that will help you navigate the business world.  You can be smart about good choices and you can be candid about mistakes -- but the point is you must willing to put yourself out there, be courageous, take chances, and earn what you deserve.    

And for my men readers, please read this book.  We need you to help us succeed in business and in the executive suite.  Your mothers, wives, daughters, nieces and granddaughters will applaud you for your effort and support.  I will too.
