Developing Women Leaders in Corporate America: Balancing Competing Demands, Transcending Traditional Boundaries by Alan Belasen. Women who aspire to leadership roles in their fields should check out this book, says Michael Letizia, president of Letizia HR Solutions. In theory, people would judge corporate leaders by their companies’ performance, but too often, women are held to what is often a no-win double standard: They’re expected to be nice without being pushovers, Letizia says. Some women find their willingness to extend second chances abused.

Developing Women Leaders in Corporate America : Balancing Competing Demands, Transcending Traditional Boundaries. There is abundant proof that women in senior positions can make boardrooms "smarter" and companies more successful. And with a mastery of transformational and transactional roles, women possess a far larger behavioral repertoire to deal with stress than men-an advantage in any crisis situation.

This book provides research-based evidence within the Competing Values Framework to examine women's leadership styles, demonstrate their suitability for senior management positions, and show how employers must embrace women in leadership roles in order for their companies to be diversified and globalized.

Required book for grad school, so not a choice on buying it one way or the other. Written by a professor who works at SUNY Albany.

Found it very informative, and of course you can't go wrong with the prices on here as compared to buying it from school. Interesting read for all people studying business. Found it especially interesting being a young women in the business world. A book that I didn't sell back and intend to keep for reference in the future.

Alan Belasen has written an accessible, thought-provoking and highly original book on the reasons why, despite record numbers of women graduating from professional schools and occupying managerial positions, there are so few women actually leading organizations in corporate America. It is depressing news in itself that this question still needs to be asked in 2012, and Belasen paints a sobering portrait of what the remaining cultural and social barriers are that continue to prevent women from reaching these top positions. His research, which is both empirically based and theoretically grounded, draws heavily on the specific theoretical model of the Competing Values Framework. The "CVF" framework allows Belasen to skillfully analyze the competing values that guide human action within organizations, and in particular, the competing demands placed on women managers, which can create a situation where they feel they must be "hypereffective," which in turn, leads to the classic scenario of burn-out. Though all managers have to deal with the problem of "constrained optimization," or competing demands on their energy and time, women managers are often caught in a particular bind, given societal expectations and gender stereotypes of how women should behave. Also drawing on feminist theory of why it is that women face continuing discrimination in the boardroom, Belasen ultimately provides the reader with a hopeful scenario of potential change that can occur within these organizations. Based on case studies, he demonstrates how women leaders can assume a "transformational" role within their companies. Offering the reader both scholarly research and helpful real-world examples, and written in a non-jargon laden style, this book would be ideally suited not only for MBA and undergraduate courses in cultural diversity in the workplace and management studies, but would also be a helpful addition to introductory women's studies and organizational behavior and managerial communication courses.

The author hits a home run with this business book centered around women in the corporate world. Combining evidence from various media (interviews, magazines and more) Belasen makes a solid case for the better boardroom and how that can create a better company. His insightful examples reveal many positive characteristics attributed to America's most successful business women who are still a minority among men.

Great read for men and women both inside and outside of the corporate world.
