Notes:

"Many lament the dearth of women in senior leadership positions. Madsen's research on women university presidents provides practical insights into how they evolved into those roles. More important, this provides a remarkable blueprint for any woman who aspires to follow in their tracks. This combination of clinical and empirical research makes a valued contribution to the literature of leadership." -- Jack Zenger, CEO, Zenger-Folkman and coauthor, The Extraordinary Leader: Turning Good Managers into Great Leaders
