Developing Leadership is a groundbreaking book that focuses on the lifetime development of ten strong, competent, and fascinating women governors. This one of a kind book shares the commonalities and perspectives of ten women on their own personal journeys in developing leadership throughout childhood, youth, young adulthood, and adulthood. These ten women reflect a journey shared, in part, by all leaders. Based on years of research, Developing Leadership provides a profile of each governor and then an analysis of the data gathered from extensive interviews with each of these women. It shows how they were able to develop the skills and abilities throughout their lives to become the leaders they became. If we are truly interested in figuring out how to develop strong, competent leaders for the future, then we must look at those who have succeeded in the past and those who are succeeding now. This book provides a blueprint for any woman who wants to learn to lead.

LAS 222: Leadership in a Diverse Society @ Iowa State University I read this book in a leadership class that I am taking at college, and I really enjoyed it because It provides real stories of real people that I have never met before but I feel that I can relate to the things they have gone through in their life experiences of being a leader. Although I never could see myself as a women governor or have any interest in being in politics, I think anyone can gain knowledge about being a leader from the interviews and research that is presented in this book. Each chapter is a life summary of ten woman governors in the US, and they talk about their life stories and lessons that have influenced who they are today. The whole time I thought about if I had a life story in this book what it would be like, and could compare the things to my life especially as a college student. If your inspired to learn more about being a leader and learning from the experiences of other leaders than this is definitely a book to look into because it give the perspectives of ten completely different, yet similar women leaders.
Review:This book have interview from 10 different women governors about how they became the governors. The goal of book is give us some kind of imformation about each governors. They have different leadership style. I read this book very interestingly because this book have very good advices for us. And if you are very intereste with politics as a women, this book will give you great information to you. I strongly recommed this book to young people who want to be a leader, manager, and governors.
