Over the years and across a few generations, I have had the privilege of participating in American public life in so many ways-as a daughter, a wife, a mother, and a grandmother, as well as a government servant at the highest levels, a business executive with a seat on high-profile corporate boards, and as a bestselling author and arbiter of manners. I was often the only woman in the room; this didn’t change much as my achievements grew, as our education levels increased, and the years passed. Even now, women aren’t well-represented in top positions. Thank goodness for Break Your Own Rules. This is the first book that lets us re-imagine leadership — and I mean really re-imagine leadership — by showing exactly how smart, skilled, and ambitious women can navigate the hurdles and reach their full potential. Don’t wait to read this important book. You’ll see leadership, and yourself, in a new and limitless way.
