Summary
Business leaders are being lost - in a business world that so desperately needs leadership today. Although women now represent half of all managers, they hold less than 10 percent of the top positions in U.S. corporations. Somehow, women are being lost on their way up. Much has been written about women leaders; rarely do we hear them speak. The Lost Leaders presents, in their own voices, the personal stories of women who achieved success in corporate leadership but have chosen to abandon their corporate careers. Readers will hear their own triumphs and struggles in the stories these women tell. When taken together, these stories provide a fascinating glimpse of the culture that exists in the contemporary corporation. The Lost Leaders examines what happened - and what is still happening - to women who could be leaders but have chosen instead to leave corporate environments. Heppner shows us that, though there have been tremendous changes since the careers depicted here began, the environment that led these women to leave is still prevalent. Grounded firmly in academic research, Heppner writes in an accessible style that is of interest to business professionals, students, and researchers alike, capturing a unique time in our cultural history and illuminating today's workplace
