  1. Tom Peters2002WOMEN RULE!

  2. I. Born to Lead!

  3. “AS LEADERS, WOMEN RULE: New Studies find that female managers outshine their male counterparts in almost every measure”Title, Special Report, Business Week, 11.20.00

  4. The New Economy …Shout goodbye to “command and control”!Shout goodbye to hierarchy!Shout goodbye to “knowing one’s place”!

  5. “Guys want to put everybody in their hierarchical place. Like, should I have more respect for you, or are you somebody that’s south of me?”Paul Biondi, Mercer Consultants [from It’s Not Business, It’s Personal, Ronna Lichtenberg]

  6. Women’s Strengths Match New Economy Imperatives: Link [rather than rank] workers; favor interactive-collaborative leadership style [empowerment beats top-down decision making]; sustain fruitful collaborations; comfortable with sharing information; see redistribution of power as victory, not surrender; favor multi-dimensional feedback; value technical & interpersonal skills, individual & group contributions equally; readily accept ambiguity; honor intuition as well as pure “rationality”; inherently flexible; appreciate cultural diversity.Source: Judy B. Rosener, America’s Competitive Secret

  7. “On average, women and men possess a number of different innate skills. And current trends suggest that many sectors of the twenty-first-century economic community are going to need the natural talents of women.”Helen Fisher, The First Sex: The Natural Talents of Women and How They Are Changing the World

  8. “American women possess leadership abilities that are particularly effective in today’s organizations, yet their abilities remain undervalued and underutilized. In the future, what will distinguish one organization and one country from another will be its use of human resources. Today human resource utilization is not only a matter of social justice but a bottom-line issue.”Judy Rosener, America’s Competitive Secret

  9. “TAKE THIS QUICK QUIZ: Who manages more things at once? Who puts more effort into their appearance? Who usually takes care of the details? Who finds it easier to meet new people? Who asks more questions in a conversation? Who is a better listener? Who has more interest in communication skills? Who is more inclined to get involved? Who encourages harmony and agreement? Who has better intuition? Who works with a longer ‘to do’ list? Who enjoys a recap to the day’s events? Who is better at keeping in touch with others?”Source: Selling Is a Woman’s Game: 15 Powerful Reasons Why Women Can Outsell Men, Nicki Joy & Susan Kane-Benson

  10. “Investors are looking more and more for a relationship with their financial advisers. They want someone they can trust, someone who listens. In my experience, in general, women may be better at these relationship-building skills than are men.”Hardwick Simmons, CEO, Prudential Securities

  11. “Thank you”17 Men: 84 Women: 19

  12. Ass Of The Year2002 (?): Maurice Greenberg, A.I.G., on the Company’s New (All Male) Leadership Team“In a lot of countries of the world, it would be very difficult for a woman to be a good CEO. … I have a responsibility to do the best we can for shareholders.” * ***Source: New York Times/05.05.02**Wouldn’t you love to watch him tell that … face-to-face … to Margaret Thatcher or Carly Fiorina? (I would.)

  19. “Deloitte was doing a great job of hiring high-performing women; in fact, women often earned higher performance ratings than men in their first years with the firm. Yet the percentage of women decreased with step up the career ladder. … Most women weren’t leaving to raise families; they had weighed their options in Deloitte’s male-dominated culture and found them wanting. Many, dissatisfied with a culture they perceived as endemic to professional service firms, switched professions.”Douglas McCracken, “Winning the Talent War for Women” [HBR]

  20. “The process of assigning plum accounts was largely unexamined. … Male partners made assumptions:‘I wouldn’t put her on that kind of company because it’s a tough manufacturing environment.’ ‘That client is difficult to deal with.’ ‘Travel puts too much pressure on women.’ ”Douglas McCracken, “Winning the Talent War for Women” [HBR]

  41. “Men seem like loose cannons. Men always move faster through a store’s aisles. Men spend less time looking. They usually don’t like asking where things are. You’ll see a man move impatiently through a store to the section he wants, pick something up, and then, almost abruptly he’s ready to buy. For a man, ignoring the price tag is almost a sign of virility.”Paco Underhill, Why We Buy*(*Buy this book!)

  46. Read This:Barbara & Allan Pease’s Why Men Don’t Listen & Women Can’t Read Maps

  47. “It is obvious to a woman when another woman is upset, while a man generally has to physically witness tears or a temper tantrum or be slapped in the face before he even has a clue that anything is going on. Like most female mammals, women are equipped with far more finely tuned sensory skills than men.” Barbara & Allan Pease, Why Men Don’t Listen & Women Can’t Read Maps

  48. “Resting” State: 30%, 90%: “A woman knows her children’s friends, hopes, dreams, romances, secret fears, what they are thinking, how they are feeling. Men are vaguely aware of some short people also living in the house.”Barbara & Allan Pease, Why Men Don’t Listen & Women Can’t Read Maps

  49. “As a hunter, a man needed vision that would allow him to zero in on targets in the distance … whereas a woman needed eyes to allow a wide arc of vision so that she could monitor any predators sneaking up on the nest. This is why modern men can find their way effortlessly to a distant pub, but can never find things in fridges, cupboards or drawers.”Barbara & Allan Pease, Why Men Don’t Listen & Women Can’t Read Maps

  50. “Female hearing advantage contributes significantly to what is called ‘women’s intuition’ and is one of the reasons why a woman can read between the lines of what people say. Men, however, shouldn’t despair. They are excellent at imitating animal sounds.”Barbara & Allan Pease, Why Men Don’t Listen & Women Can’t Read Maps
