This book looks at women as leaders at all levels within organisations and in all aspects of their lives as a result of taking control of their destiny and making conscious and purposeful decisions rather than adopting a supporting role. In particular the author focuses upon women creating their own style of leadership, employing different skills to men in leadership and drawing upon inner strength and emotion. The book contains many compelling examples and case studies.
