Women on Top: What's Keeping You From Executive Leadership?

Deb Boelkes

2022 FAPA President's Book Award: Silver: Business It’s a pivotal time for women leaders. On one hand, studies show women are woefully underrepresented in the highest echelons of corporate leadership. On the other, we’ve made huge strides in the political arena, while the global business world increasingly values the “soft skills” we’re naturally good at. So, what does all of this mean for women who aspire to the C-suite? Deb Boelkes has a simple message: Go for it. Conditions have never been more favorable. In Women on Top: What’s Keeping You From Executive Leadership?—the third in a four-book series—Boelkes lays out a blueprint for getting out of your own way so you can make real progress. She tackles big roadblocks like fear, impostor syndrome, gender bias, and victimhood and offers advice on overcoming them. She masterfully weaves her own story together with been-there-done-that advice from seven high-level women from various industries.
