Overview

Women's Ways of Leading invites the reader into a journey of self-discovery informed by a fresh definition of leadership that transcends position, role and hierarchy and proposes leadership as reciprocal learning in purposeful communities. Lambert and Gardner argue convincingly that this century needs women leaders who commit to values, are conscious of their evolving selves,
invoke passion and courage, arouse the imagination, create community and mentor the next generation. Based on the findings of a series of studies examining women leaders across multiple fields of endeavors, the latest findings in brain research and psychology, and case studies from the lives of some of the world's most remarkable women leaders, Women's Ways of Leading sets forth provocative possibilities for a world led equally by enlightened women and men.

For two decades, Linda Lambert and Mary Gardner have worked together as colleagues, friends and co-authors on two best-selling books on leadership, The Constructivist Leader (1995, 2002). They served in top-level leadership positions, engaged in research on women and leadership, consulted internationally, and mentored the next generation of women leaders.

Dr. Lambert is also lead author of Who Will Save Our Schools?, three books on leadership capacity and dozens of articles. She worked to set up community schools for girls in Egypt and advised organizations in Canada, England, Malaysia, Thailand, Australia, Mexico, and throughout the United States. A former social worker, school principal and university professor, Lambert is the president of Lambert Leadership Development, The Sea Ranch, California.

Gardner is the former superintendent of the Saratoga, California, school district, a visiting practitioner at Harvard University, and a professor of educational leadership. She consults with non-profit organizations and has served on five boards of directors.
