"This book is timely and valuable. Its global range alone makes it worth the attention of managers and researchers – women and men alike – who need to understand the role women can and should play in developed and developing economies. In exploring the cultural images of managers in numerous countries, and testing these against the realities of what actually constitutes leadership in the global economy, the book breaks new ground." Rosabeth Moss Kanter, Harvard Business School
"If you are concerned about your company's success in global competition – and I don't know any executive who isn't – this book is a must–read for you." James E. Preston, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Avon Products Inc.
"It is about managing human assets in a boundaryless, borderless world. Adler and Izraeli dare to link global competitive advantage of organizations with greater numbers of women in senior management roles. This is a book to be read by all global managers on the cutting edge of their industry. It will definitely open some eyes!" Mary Ann Von Glinow, President–Elect, Academy of Management, Professor of Management and International Business, Florida International University
The Human Resource field recognizes that achieving on edge in a very competitive global environment is dependent upon the ability to attract, retain and utilize the best talent available. This book goes beyond other publications in exposing the myths which have prevented many companies from fully utilizing talented women in their global workforce."
