The Confidence Effect: Every Woman's Guide to the Attitude That Attracts Success

By Grace Killelea
In the twenty-first-century workplace, women are encouraged to step up, lean in, take charge, go for it . . . yet how much has actually changed regarding the makeup of leadership when it comes to adding women's voices? While it's easy to still blame a corporate culture that favors men, seasoned executive Grace Killelea identifies another culprit: a surprising disparity in confidence--with men typically prone to overestimate their abilities, and women too often selling themselves short. For real change to take place within the workforce when it comes to adding more women's voices within leadership, we must get beyond knowing that we simply have the ability as women to speak out, take risks, and fill leadership positions; we must become more confident that we can do those things with excellence!The Confidence Effect moves beyond research, statistics, and cheerleading, and focuses on what's really important: how women can become more confident, one step at a time. While developing the four Rs of Success--relationships, reputation, results, and resilience--women will learn how best to: - Build circles of influence- Seize opportunities they normally avoid- Leverage and promote their skills- Cultivate executive presence- Bounce back from setbacks- And moreYou've been encouraged to get in the game your entire life, yet you remain on the sidelines. Why? Become more confident in who you are and what you can do, and claim the success you deserve!
