Book Description

Oct. 13 1995
Fifteen women CEOs and presidents of companies with annual revenues of $10 million or more tell how they got to the top -- on their terms. Through personal interviews and striking photographs these business leaders reveal how they broke through the gender barrier to acheive top executive positions, and how they learned to balance family needs with work responsiblities.

In On Our Own Terms, these innovative women give candid, down-to-earth advice on issues ranging from employee communications to child day care. They offer useful advice on:
- Career planning,
- Customer service,
- Growing a business,
- Managing work and family life, and more.

The women selected represent a cross-section of American women in ethnicity, age, geography, and business experience. On Our Own Terms explores the struggles, sacrifices, challenges and triumphs they have experienced on their way to success.

Product Description

From Library Journal

The 15 women executives profiled here are intended as role models, so they are seen primarily through their own eyes. About half of each entry consists of direct quotes from the profilee. These are interspersed with comments by the authors (Enkelis is a photographer, Olsen an art director, Lewenstein an editor), with flattering photographs taken by Enkelis. Some names, such as Wilma Mankiller, principal chief of the Cherokee Nation, may be familiar from the news, but most will not. These women have encountered problems such as divorce, difficulty in obtaining financing, or being discounted due to their gender, but the emphasis is on success and what they have done right. Coverage spans a variety of industries, including nonprofit. The graphics quality is noteworthy. Recommended to fill a gap in business collections because there is a relative dearth of literature providing positive portraits of women business leaders.?Sue McKimm, Cuyahoga Cty. P.L., Parma, Ohio

From Booklist

Unusual, candid, and unconventional role models--all CEOs of corporations with annual revenues exceeding $10 million--offer a fresh look at women in business in their own words. From Josie Natori of a Manhattan-based women's apparel manufacturer to the Minyard sisters of the eponymous Dallas^-Fort Worth food stores, each corporate head speaks frankly about her background, education, obstacles, philosophy, and life balance. It is clear in these eloquent portraits that anyone can choose to lead (and succeed) despite color, race, gender, or ethnicity. Barbara Jacobs
