This is one of the first books written by a man in which a male senior executive speaks directly to other men in the C-suites about the business imperative of sharing leadership with women, and shows how to get it done. In Make Way for Women, business veteran/leadership expert John Keyser profiles 45 respected male and female business leaders who verify the financial and culture gains that women are bringing to U.S. companies. The research, case studies and anecdotes in this book clearly show how capturing the combined strengths of men and women in executive leadership inspires culture, retains talent and drives profit.
