Picking up the women and success conversation where Sheryl Sandberg left off, Krawcheck shows women how to take their careers to the next level….by playing by a new set of rules that build on their natural strengths.
 
So much advice for women talks about how to succeed in the static business world of yesterday and today. But that world is rapidly changing, and these changes are empowering women in unprecedented ways. Because in the increasingly complex, connected, and technology-driven world of tomorrow where communication and collaboration rule the day  the skills and qualities needed for success are ones that women inherently possess: in spades. 
 
By owning those qualities – qualities that make women amazing collaborators, extraordinary leaders and invaluable assets in the business world -  you have more power and potential than you realize. 
 
Here Krawcheck draws on her experiences at the highest levels of business, both as one of the lone women at the top rungs of the biggest boys club in the world, and as an entrepreneur, to show how women can tap into these skills – and their enormous economic power – to elevate their careers: everything from getting the raise, to new takes on networking and mentoring, to navigating career breaks and curveballs and forging non-traditional career paths, to how to initiate the “courageous conversations” about true flexibility and diversity in the workplace. We can have a more significant role than ever in shaping our companies – and building new companies – into places we want to work.  
 
Lighting the path to complete the revolution ignited by Gloria Steinem, Krawcheck shows how each one of us can leverage our growing power to own our careers and our futures.

From the Hardcover edition.

Praise

“It’s no secret the business world is in a time of transformation, largely driven by technology. Increased automation means that skills like collaboration, creativity and relationship-building are even more valuable. As Sallie Krawcheck shows, women are uniquely positioned to succeed by tapping into the power they already possess. “Own It” is a manual for how women can both thrive and accelerate these changes — which will benefit both men and women”. –Arianna Huffington
 
 
“Young women are raised to think they don't have the natural skills to succeed in a “man’s world”. In this inspiring book, Krawcheck shows why stereotypically "female" qualities are actually a source of power.  This book fills me with hope that our next generation of young women will grow up believing they are brave and capable of changing the world. “
-Reshma Saujani, Founder and CEO, Girls Who Code
