Sideways To The Top Insights for leaders

Macfarlan Lane has recently published a book Sideways To The Top – 10 Stories of Successful Women That Will Change Your Thinking About Careers Forever (published by Melbourne Books). The book captures the career decisions and choices made by a number of successful and high achieving women. Their stories are illustrative of non-linear and unpredictable pathways to career success, where women have effectively challenged the status quo and sidestepped more traditional career advancement models. This is also a book of conversations that challenge conventional thinking about how to break through the “glass ceiling”. These stories and conversations generate fresh career thinking about what career success means for women and how it can be achieved.
