Lynn Harris answers the question of why there are so few women in positions of senior leadership, and provides pragmatic advice and professional development for women leaders. Clearly written and convincingly told, Unwritten Rules explodes the leadership myths prevalent in the workplace today, and provides women with essential information to make informed choices about their careers and how to lead. Based on the most recent research, Unwritten Rules explores the specific challenges faced by women leaders and what it takes for them to succeed within the current leadership model.

Unwritten Rules provides pragmatic professional development advice for all women leaders. How to strategically influence in a way that minimizes gender stereotyping. How to conduct due diligence on an organization to ensure it provides an environment in which women can succeed. How to build strategic professional relationships and why mentoring and coaching is so important. And, most important, how women can lead authentically and be true to themselves within the context of the Unwritten Rules.

Book Reviews

Lynn Harris has demystified the challenges facing women who aspire to corner offices in large organizations. Her book is structurally sound, clear and rational. It’s also teeming with examples from people’s personal experiences that bring life to the book. This is a roadmap for corporations that wish to mine the wealth of talented women within their organizations and a first-time look at “corporate refugees”, women who find success on their own terms. This is an important and valuable resource for the development of women leaders. It is a stellar achievement.

Lynn Harris demystifies the structural arches that still support the enduring “glass ceiling” and provides a coherent and functional framework of the thinking and behaviors that foster success for women aspiring to leadership roles in today’s organizations. This book provides a core of understanding, in the form of practical contexts and language that stimulates confidence and managerial courage, regardless of gender. An energizing read and indispensable as a management and leadership reference tool.
