The future of business communications is a fully interconnected world where every employee will access, create and use content from anywhere. At the same time, companies want to keep their employees connected anytime or anywhere. Employees are no longer tied to their desktops, and they want the same communications options on the road or from home that they have in the office. Face-to-face communication is quickly becoming a lost art in this age of e-mail, texting and voicemail. But ultimately, when it comes to engaging an audience or making a compelling sales presentation, business is still driven by personal communication. High technology sets the stage, but speaking face-to-face seals the deal. Lack of communicative ability plagues many corporations, and the professionals that rise to the top are overwhelming those that develop communication approaches that achieve results. But, communicating with influence takes work and requires constant attention. This text will assist you in understanding types of communication, explain how successful communication takes place, and suggest ways of improving communication.

Women and Leadership around the World is the third volume in a new series of books (Women and Leadership: Research, Theory, and Practice) that will is now being published to inform leadership scholars and practitioners. The purpose of this volume is to explore areas of women’s leadership in four regions around the world: the Middle East, Europe, North America, and Asia Pacific. Hence, we have included 14 chapters that cover a wide range of important topics relevant to women and leadership within specific contexts around the world. Our goal for this volume is to provide readers with explorations of women’s experiences as leaders, including recent research studies, analysis and interpretation of statistics unpacking the status of women in various sectors and countries, stories of influential women leaders with national or local spheres of influence, and including recommendations for positive change to increase women’s access to positions of authority. The volume contributors use various theories and conceptualizations to problematize, historicize, and analyze women’s limited access to power, and their agency as leaders from the grassroots to the national scene, from education to nonprofits and business organizations. Overall, the book contributes interpretations of the status of women in various countries, presenting the stories behind the numbers and statistics and uncovering not only challenges but also opportunities for resiliency and effectiveness as leaders. The authors offer recommendations for change that cross national boundaries, such as structural changes in organizations that would open the door for more women to access positions of authority and be effective as leaders. It is rare to find a book with such a diverse array of topics and countries, making this a timely contribution to the literature on women and leadership. The authors remind us to continue to expand the literature base on women and leadership, drawing from both qualitative and quantitative studies as well as conceptual explorations of women as leaders in different countries, regions, indigenous communities, and across different sectors. The more we know, the better informed will be our efforts to create appropriate leadership development activities and experiences for emerging women leaders and girls around the world. This book contributes significantly to that very effort.
