The New Advantage

Women want to lead.

Their companies want that, too. Companies with more women in leadership have been shown to do better, and women who take the lead in their careers reach new levels of personal and professional success. The good news is women are in the position to empower themselves to advance as leaders. We'll show you how.

Saly Glassman,
Managing Director – Wealth Management, Merrill Lynch

“The New Advantage offers compelling real-world guidance for women seeking to strengthen themselves as leaders while creating more satisfying and sustainable careers. Howard and Joelle have provided an invaluable service, not just to women but the organizations and to the world. Great stuff!”

Sally Helgesen,
author, The Female Advantage: Women’s Ways of Leadership and The Female Vision: Women’s Real Power at Work

“We are in the midst of a transformation – one in which business leaders understand the advantages of women in leadership and are committed to improving their company’s value by balancing their leadership teams. Lean In gave us the “why” and the “what.” The New Advantage gives us the how. This a book that should be on every aspiring woman’s shelf!”

Sharon Meers,
Former Head of Strategic Partnerships, eBay Enterprise and Author (with Joanna Strober) of Getting to 50/50: How Working Parents Can Have It All

“Leaders still have a long way to go in understanding how to interact, understand, listen, and hire/promote female talent. It also requires a dedicated partnership between men and women. The corporation has to have a real strategy in place as part of its culture to get it right. The New Advantage provides that strategy.”

Tony Nugent,
Executive Vice President, MetLife

"Success in my job means maintaining such a high level of commitment that it’s easy to let it consume me. After hours, on the weekend, and on vacation, if I’m not careful. I don’t get to enjoy my success, and I want to. The 100 Secrets of High-Performing Women reminds me of what I want to remember – the good feelings that come from enjoying a job well done, the encouragement to keep stretching for the next big thing. I love hearing about what other women are saying about ourselves and remembering that we’re in this together."

Jennifer Nixon
President and CEO
