The Power of Women United
by Tina Dezsi & Lia Bandola
Published August 2009
First, we are cast by society in roles for which we are unprepared and perhaps ill-suited. We play by rules we didn't write. Then we are chastised for not succeeding in those roles or for failing to follow 'the rules'. The unrealistic expectations imposed by those roles and rules steal our confidence, damage our self-esteem, and mask our true identity. The Power of Women United explores the triumphs and tragedies of 22 amazing women who each forged their own path to success. They starred in roles they sought, and wrote their own rules.
Once upon a lifetime, I was a bank executive. During that time I attended what felt like every seminar every created that dealt with success and how to achieve it, time management and how to maximize it, efficiency in the workplace and how to increase it. You get the picture. So when I picked up the book The Power of Women United, I was expecting to read through pages filled with words I'd already heard before with somebody else's opinion on how I could become flushed with my own success. I typically cringe at self-help, can you tell?
Fortunately, this book is not written as an instruction manual or from the perspective of one person. On the contrary, authors Tina Dezsi and Lia Bandola have compiled 22 essays by 22 different women. These women have vastly different backgrounds and have found success in professions that are just as diverse. The book confronts the unique challenges women face in their professional and personal lives and offers advise on everything from public speaking to of course, networking (the authors are founders of the Power of Women Exchange).
This is a great book for entrepreneurial-minded women and those looking for a source of inspiration, motivation and encouragement to capitalize on your own value.
