No Ceiling, No Walls

No Ceiling, No Walls

"We read books to find out who we are. What other people, real
or imaginary, do and think and feel is an essential guide to our
understanding of what we ourselves are and may become."


This book is for you if you...

Believe that the playing field has been leveled and women are as likely to advance as men.
Need a mid-course correction because your career has stalled.
Take leadership development courses from your organization and expect them to help you climb the corporate ladder.
Wonder why a man got the job you thought you were perfect for.
Can't believe that your excellent interpersonal skills haven't propelled you up the organization.
Believe in the idea that leadership is different than management - and think it will help you succeed.
Can't read a financial report...and don't think it really matters.
Think that the path upward is deeper professional expertise.
Think that you are paid to do your job.
Think that what you say is more important than how you say it.
Are at career-start and want to get off on the right foot.
Need to know what it means to lead at the middle- or senior-management level.
Wonder what it takes to succeed at the executive level.
Hope to serve on not-for-profit or for-profit boards.
In other words, if you have unrealized career goals, within these pages you'll gain insights that will help you reframe your thinking and move beyond obstacles in order to achieve your goals.
Succeeding "Outside the Box"

To become the best leader you can be, you will have to succeed outside the box that we've been told constrains women. Since the mid-'80s we've heard about the glass ceiling that holds women down. In the early '90s, we were introduced to the concept of maternal walls that fence us in with negative stereotypes about mothers' lack of commitment to careers (and appropriateness in the workplace). And we've learned about the sticky floor - that collection of personal weaknesses that can hold women at the bottom. In other words, we're described as boxed in - ceiling, walls and floor.

Don't misunderstand. I acknowledge the reality of the barriers. Some of our own attitudes and behaviors impede our aspirations (sticky floor); many of us encounter stereotypes that get in the way of career progress and wage equity (glass ceiling); and some women work in mother-hostile organizational cultures that block advancement (maternal wall).

But I'm sure you'd agree that being "boxed in" doesn't describe the career that you want. You might see obstacles, but you don't want to give them power. While you might temporarily feel discouraged by a bump in the road, you want to use your purpose, power and presence to overcome it. You're on a career path, and you want to take the next step.

But to take that next step, there are some things you need to know. First, any step up the ladder will depend solely on your leadership abilities. Second, that next step can seem so daunting, and perhaps even unattainable, because of the important things about leadership that you - and other women like you - haven't been told.
What Women Haven't Been Told...

In 1999, I was called back to an early interest - to focus on powering the success of women by helping them become more effective leaders. Knowing that women are consistently viewed as outperforming men in most skills and attributes traditionally associated with leadershi
