Leadership Test: Surviving Adversity With Dignity, Grace and Integrity

Thursday, July 19, 2012 @ 5:56 AM

How about this for a women's leadership book topic -- Surviving Adversity With Dignity, Grace & Integrity. The first person I'd interview would be University of Virginia President Terry Sullivan who was just re-instated after faculty and students reacted with outrage over her ouster by the Board.

What a fiasco -- but what lessons learned President Sullivan could share.  Hope she writes her own book one day.  She's a brilliant and terrific leader -- and a tough Texan who cut her academic teeth in Texas before becoming Provost at the University of Michigan.  I met her during her years in Michigan and interviewed her for my book, POWERING UP!  

Here's more from the Boston Globe on the leadership fiasco perpetrated by the Board of the University of Virginia -- they now have egg all over their faces and Sullivan has been re-instated.

100 Top Websites for Women

Wednesday, July 04, 2012 @ 12:44 PM

Here are two great sources of excellent information for aspiring women (and men interested in what we're up to!) who want to make a difference in the world.  Forbeswoman, where I am a contributing blogger, just published its "100 "Top 100 Websites for Women," including 85Broads and several other favorites of mine.  

And the League of Extraordinary Women is a treasure trove of fantastic, women- led organizations committed to helping to lift the human family.  Here's Fast Company's list of the Best. 

Enjoy.

Nobel Peace Prize Winner Tells Women, "It is Time to Stop Being Politely Angry."

Monday, March 12, 2012 @ 2:26 PM

When Liberian leader Leymah Gbowee, winner of the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize, speaks people listen.  And wait till you hear the challenge she issued to the women gathered at the 2012 Women in the World Summit last week in New York.  

I was there for every riveting moment.  Here's the column I just wrote about the event for Forbeswoman.

Is This A Hillary Moment?

Tuesday, November 22, 2011 @ 6:38 AM

With our presidential election less than one year away and our nation dismayed with the leadership deadlock in Washington, D.C. the drumbeat is growing for a Hillary Clinton presidency.  I don't expect it to happen, but when the Wall Street Journal publishes a major Op Ed advocating her election, you know we've come a long way toward being ready to elect our first woman president.  Click here for the WSJ commentary.

Michelle Obama Steps Up to New Role: Energizer in Chief

Saturday, November 19, 2011 @ 9:31 AM

Great to see Michelle Obama stepping up again after three years keeping a low profile. White House strategist David Alelrod told the New York Times, "Her mission is to energize folks and give them encouragement to go out and do the work." Now that's leadership! And a skill that tends to be a natural strength of women. Power On, Michelle!  Great piece in today's NY Times.

WHO SAYS WAR AND PEACE ARE MEN'S DOMAIN?

Sunday, October 16, 2011 @ 10:18 AM

I've just started watching the bold, powerful PBS 5-part series, WOMEN, WAR & PEACE.   It is airing every Tuesday night through Nov. 8th -- 10 p.m. EST in Detroit, check your local listings.   It challenges the conventional wisdom that war and peace are the domain of men, brings you up close to the impact of war on women and girls in Bosnia, Liberia, Afghanistan, Columbia -- and how they are standing up and Powering UP!  to not just survive as victims but to lead the way to new solutions to one of the world's oldest horrors.  

Here's the trailer and more:  Women, War & Peace.

Princeton Releases Disturbing Report on Lack of Female Student Leaders

Sunday, April 10, 2011 @ 10:47 AM

About a year ago, Princeton University President Shirley Tilghman ordered a study of why the cream-of-the-crop female students admitted to this prestigious university lag their male peers in aspiring to and achieving student leadership roles.  This is exactly the challenge I tackle in my new book, Powering Up! How America's Women Achievers Become Leaders.

The results of the study, which was just released, paint an alarming picture about what's happening with the next generation of educated, skilled women. 

The paths to achievement that they have encountered so far were paved decades ago, so they have never leared how to fight for opportunity.  And the conundrum of balancing "being an attractive female" with a person with power appears to be as complex as ever.  Here's a summary of the findings and a link to the full Princeton report.

Anne Doyle Comments on Powering Up! New Book on Women's Leadership

Thursday, March 31, 2011 @ 2:40 PM

Earlier this month, business consultant and former NAWBO California president Patty DeDominic, co-founder of the California Women's Festival invited me to be the opening speaker for her fantastic, annual, Santa Barbara gathering of over 1,000 women.  While I was there, she also insisted that I let photographer Deb Halberstadt videotape and producer a short video of me introducing my just-published book,Powering Up!   Deb and Rich Tamayo of TVP Studios did a beautiful job.  Here's my "elevator speech" on how Powering Up! will help you answer the call to leadership. 

 

Autoline Detroit's John McElroy Seeks "Aha Moment" Stories

Thursday, March 31, 2011 @ 2:37 PM

John McElroy, host of Autoline Detroit, the most-watched TV show for automotive insiders, and one of the most respected journalists covering the indsutry, invited me to his studios recently for a new series he's starting.  He's asking senior women in the industry to share the insights they learned from one of their most important professional "Aha Moments."  Mine is about dealing with workplace enemies.
