About the Book

“In today’s increasingly complex world of work, we need the leadership attributes and change intelligence that women possess in order to find powerful solutions to the challenges we face.

The case studies are powerful and Debora’s storytelling is engaging with a renegade edge.”

Barbara A. Trautlein, Ph.D, Author of Change Intelligence

Sometimes the best man for the job…isn’t.

There’s never been a better time to be a woman in the business world. But just because you’re on the rungs of leadership doesn’t mean you have to be one of the boys. Not only is it a lot more fun to stand tall in your Jimmy Choo’s than to squeeze your feet into wingtips – it’s also a lot smarter. The leadership paradigm is changing, and companies are hungry for smart, passionate women who embrace their unique female leadership advantage and lead them into the future. Packed with practical advice and stories from top female CEOs, this book will show you how to tap into your female DNA, embrace your inner renegade, climb to the top of the ladder – and avoid breaking a heel along the way. ICF Certified Executive Coach Debora McLaughlin works with executives, CEO’s, and business owners to tap into their inner Renegade Leader, create high-performing cultures, increase profits, and gain market presence. Now, she’s helping women leaders elevate their stature in a fun and practical book designed to give you the right shoes to pave the road ahead. You’ll learn:
