7 Deadly Sins of Women in Leadership
For the first time in modern history, women are making their way into strategic positions of influence and leadership within the church, public, corporate, charity and voluntary sectors, in unprecedented numbers. Women are called by God to flourish in these arenas. However, there are significant external and internal issues that hinder women in leadership in unique ways.
But if you think this book is only for women, you are gravely mistaken. While women's entry onto the leadership arena may have been the catalyst to uncover deep-seated issues in leadership culture, the challenges addressed here are not unique to women in leadership alone.
In 7 Deadly Sins of Women in Leadership, Kate Coleman considers what lies at the root of the many challenges facing today's leaders--women and men--and proposes ways of dealing with them. Effective leadership starts with you and, based on her 35 years of leadership experience, Kate explains how you can:
- Overcome limiting self-perceptions
- Establish boundaries
- Develop a tailor-made personal vision
- Cultivate a healthy work/life rhythm
- Stop being a people-pleaser
- Learn to confront not collude
- Be intentional with your inner circle
Written for every leader from any sector, this proven and practical book will enable you to identify and overcome self-defeating patterns of behavior, in ways that will radically transform your leadership.
