Overview
Women are told to step up and lean in...but how?

Every day, talented, hardworking women are passed over for promotions. While it's easy to blame a corporate culture that favors men, seasoned executive Grace Killelea identifies another culprit: a surprising disparity in confidence. Men are prone to overestimate their abilities, while women too often sell themselves short.

The Confidence Effect helps women speak out, take risks, and assume leadership positions with assurance. The book moves beyond research and statistics to focus on what's really important: how women can become more confident, one step at a time.

Practical strategies show how to turn job competency into the kind of authentic confidence that gets noticed. Women learn to practice the Four Rs of Success--relationships, reputation, results, and resilience--dipping in for tips and tools on how to:

Build circles of influence - Seize opportunities they normally avoid - Leverage and promote their skills - Cultivate executive presence - Use data compellingly - Bounce back from setbacks - And more

With this powerful new book, women everywhere will find the confidence they need to step off the sidelines onto the playing field--and claim the success they deserve.

Killelea, a leadership coach and former SVP of Comcast, indulges in a lot of shiny inspiration talk without a fresh perspective or new information to back it up. Citing a dispiriting disconnect between the competence of the high-performing women around her and the low levels of confidence they display, she asks what would happen if she could draw a connecting line between the two and help women achieve both success and happiness. Its a truism, verging on cliché, that women often feel like they can never measure up to expectations. To correct this tendency, Killelea presents stories from successful women and tips for developing levels of confidence that more accurately reflect ones level of talent and aptitude for hard work. She covers the high points of networking, delegation, coaching and mentoring, reputation building, and accountability; these are all worthwhile subjects, but ones that have been discussed ad nauseam in a host of previous books. Readers will find little of substance here. Agent: Leticia Gomez, Savvy Literary Services. (Jan.)
