Join HBA OC's virtual book club, where we will discuss the best-selling book, The Power of Perception: Leadership, Emotional Intelligence, and the Gender Divide with the author—Dr. Shawn Andrews.
The Power of Perception serves as a practical guide to educate women, men and organizations on the barriers that keep women from fully contributing in the workplace. These include differences in leadership style and emotional intelligence, gender bias and stereotypes, breadwinner and caregiver responsibilities, and differences in gender culture, which show up every day at work and home. It also explores significant changes in global demographic trends and how our youngest generations are impacting the workplace.
The book illustrates the reasons that we don’t see more women leading our global businesses. It has nothing to do with women’s skills and competencies and everything to do with perceptions of women as leaders, as workers, as mothers, and as wives. These perceptions have a significant impact on promotion for many women. Perception is reality―and it’s powerful.
The Power of Perception provides personal stories of women’s journeys, real-world examples, and is based on the author’s own research as well as that of many others. Every chapter includes practical, easy-to-apply strategies, summary points, and reflection questions to empower women, men, and organizations to fully leverage talent and diversity.
No matter what your age, reading helps keep your brain sharp and provides essential information to help boost your career. Discuss what you’ve read with other intelligent folks to challenge your understanding, learn new things, boost creativity, relieve stress, and create a social connection.
