Selena Rezvani-Pushback: How Smart Women Ask and Stand Up for What They Want

This on demand audio series is a part of the Executive Girlfriends Group Vignette Series. Chicke Fitzgerald interviews Selena Rezvani. The original live interview was 5/17/12. In Pushback: How Smart Women Ask and Stand Up for What They Want, top leadership consultant Selena Rezvani argues that self-advocacy is critical to success. Yet women initiate negotiations four times less often than men, resulting in getting less of what they want—promotion opportunities, plum assignments, and higher pay. This book shines a light on the real rules of holding your own and pushing back for what is rightfully yours. Drawing on interviews with high-level leaders, Rezvani offers readers in the first half of their career the unedited truth about how women have asked their way to the top and triumphed—and how you can too. Selena Rezvani is a recognized author, speaker, and consultant on women and leadership. She is the founder and president of Women’s Roadmap, a consulting firm whose goal is to propel more women into leadership positions and to help companies position an inclusive workplace as a competitive advantage. Selena received her Bachelor of Science and Master of Social Work degrees from New York University, and has an MBA from Johns Hopkins, where she graduated first in her class.

Linda Hill- Collective Genius: The Art and Practice of Leading Innovation

Collective Genius: The Art and Practice of Leading Innovation by Linda HillThis on demand audio series is a part of the Executive Girlfriends Group Vignette Series. Chicke Fitzgerald interviews Linda Hill. The original live interview was 4/10/15.At the heart of innovation is a paradox: you have to unleash the talents and passions of many people, yet you have to harness them into a work that is actually useful. Management professor Linda Hill offers three keys to overcoming this paradox and building a truly innovative organization. If you want a more innovative organization, you may need to change the way you lead.Great leaders of innovation don’t fit the conventional mold of “good” leadership. They’re not visionaries who set direction and inspire others to follow. Instead, they create the context in which others are both willing and able to innovate. As one leader said, “My job is to set the stage, not to perform on it.”This is the key insight gleaned by the authors of Collective Genius who, led by Harvard leadership scholar Linda Hill, spent a decade studying leaders of innovative firms in the US, Europe, India, and Asia, including such companies as Pixar, Google, Volkswagen, HCL Technologies, IBM, and the Sungjoo Group.The website is http://collectivegeniusbook.com/To order the book click HERE                  For more information about the Executive Girlfriends' Group see: http://www.executivegirlfriendsgroup.com
