00:45 Kalika is joined today by Marshall Goldsmith and Sally Helgesen, authors of How Women Rise: Break the 12 Habits Holding You Back from Your Next Raise.
01:10 Marshall's friend pitched the idea to do a more female-focused version of his bestselling book, What Got You Here Won't Get You There: How Successful People Become Even More Successful, which in turn became the inspiration to publish How Women Rise.
02:30 Women are much more harder on themselves than men, which perpetuates the concept of The Perfection Trap.
03:46 Women can rise by identifying and acting on their greatest strengths, and which behaviors that have been previously effective but can now hinder you from becoming more successful.
04:20 One of the behaviors that could hinder women from having a more successful career is the concept of really letting your job get ahead of your career, sacrificing long-term success for having a stable job.
08:15 Based on Sally's observation among her speaking and coaching tours in the US, women usually expect others to spontaneously notice and value your contribution.
12:40 The book highlights that there are behaviors that are not necessarily bad that were good to have for now, but not good when you get promoted.
16:12 The book is dedicated to Frances Hesselbein, one of the best examples of a great woman leader.
