Tales from the Glass Ceiling by Jo Haigh
Book Description12-14% of UK businesses are majority owned by women, a statistic that shows both the great strides women have made in business in the past two decades and how many obstacles still remain in a culture where 90% of the top roles are held by men. Jo Haigh has worked for many years in corporate finance, and has experienced these obstacles, and overcome them. In Tales from the Glass Ceiling, she offers women an inspirational guide to success in the male-dominated business world - a goal, that does not mean losing your identity. Haigh offers stories of success from many different areas of business, giving advice on how to reconcile an open, emotional disposition with an executive level's occasionally brutal atmosphere; how to spot the right training and development opportunities (and get them funded); how to overcome resistance to female leadership and how to build, manage and maintain your professional network. Based on Haigh's own experience as an executive and entrepreneur, and bolstered by the experiences and stories of other top women in their fields, Tales from the Glass Ceiling is an indispensable resource for all women in business.
