In the late 80s, Helgesen reported on her now-classic findings about the unique nature of female leadership. She identified many leadership methods that she believed were pioneered by women, among them: inclusive organizational forms that celebrate points of contact among people from all levels and specializations; communications methods that are driven by personality, not only by mission; and recognition of employee relationships as familial more than hierarchical. In this book, she focuses on the strategies and organization theories of four successful leaders: Frances Hesselbein, then the National Director of the Girl Scouts, and now the Executive Director of the Peter Drucker Institute; Barbara Grogan, President of Western Industrial Contractors; Nancy Badore, Director of Ford Motor Company's Executive Development Center; and Dorothy Brunson, President of minority-owned Brunson Communications. includes a new introduction as well as a user's guide to help people apply these ideas in their lives.
