I really enjoyed this book. Jackie Glenn's "gems" are a reminder for us to stay true to our values as we move up in corporate America. I was inspired by Ms. Glenn's work style- women leaders CAN be both nurturing and tough, contrary to the feedback I've been given in my career as a Black female professional. I also enjoyed reading the stories from other leaders reinforcing the gems listed in the book.
This book is a must reference book for every leader's library!
