Leadership expert Sally Helgesen and bestselling leadership coach Marshall Goldsmith have trained thousands of high achievers--men and women--to reach even greater heights. Again and again, they see that women face specific and different roadblocks from men as they advance in the workplace.

Simply put, what got you here won't get you there ... and you might not even realize your blind spots until it's too late. Are you great with the details? To rise, you need to do less and delegate more. Are you a team player? To advance, you need to take credit as easily as you share it. Are you a star networker? Leaders know a network is no good unless you know how to use it. Sally and Marshall identify the 12 habits that hold women back as they seek to advance, showing them why what worked for them in the past might actually be sabotaging their future success. Building on Marshall's classic best seller What Got You Here Won't Get You There, their new book How women rise is essential reading for any woman who is ready to advance to the next level.

Publisher's Weekly Review

Goldsmith (What Got You Here Won't Get You There) and Helgesen, a women's leadership coach and former CEO of the Girl Scouts of the U.S.A., deliver a tiresomely downbeat guide to everything women are doing wrong in the workplace. In this diluted rehash of Goldsmith's previous book, which highlighted mistakes people make at work, he and Helgesen attempt to outline the habits that keep women from reaching their goals. All the usual suspects appear, such as women being reluctant to claim achievements, expecting achievements to be noticed spontaneously, overvaluing expertise, failing to make early alliances, and expecting perfection of themselves. There's little new in the book, and the presentation is unpleasantly scolding; the authors focus heavily on the tired trope that in order to be more successful, women should behave more like men. In a particularly clumsy move, the book relies heavily on examples that relate to diets and clothes. Women readers looking for ways to succeed and thrive in the workplace are unlikely to find much of value here. (Apr.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.


Library Journal Review

Leadership expert Helgesen (The Female Advantage) and executive coach Goldsmith (What Got You Here Won't Get You There) join forces to identify the unique advantages women have in the workplace plus 12 habits that keep them from rising to their goals. Through case studies and research, the authors recognize differences between men and women (and even among women) that hold women back in their careers. For example, women tend to value the enjoyment of their work (in addition to position title and salary most often prized by men) but generally undervalue themselves by failing to take credit for their achievements. Examples of other limiting behaviors include "Failing to enlist allies from Day 1" (yes, even before we 100 percent understand our jobs) and suffering from the "Disease to please" (never saying no). For every habit, the authors define the issue, provide scenarios, examples, and a fix. What makes this book helpful is Helgesen's knowledge of women in leadership paired with -Goldsmith's leadership expertise. Women in the workforce will surely identify with at least one of the suggested habits and benefit from the solid career guidance. VERDICT Recommended advice for women who have been "leaning in" but still feel stuck.-Jennifer Clifton, Indiana State Lib., Indianapolis © Copyright 2018.
