Product Description

Parsons’ research-based book, Fresh Insights to END the Glass Ceiling, reveals the true reasons why the glass ceiling exists and it is not what most people think. That is why today’s solutions are not working. Equipped with the new insights in this book, we can at last make the glass ceiling a thing of the past.

Most companies have positive intent and are making significant investments in initiatives to accelerate promotional opportunities for women. Yet, progress has stalled. Even though it has been nearly four decades since the Pregnancy Act of 1978 went into effect, only 5.8% of CEOs of Fortune 500s are women and only about 14% serve as corporate executives. Meanwhile, nearly 60% of today’s college graduates are women. These numbers simply do not add up. Parsons explains in this new book that if we stay on the current trajectory, it will take over 400 years for women to attain just 50% of the CEO positions of Fortune 500s. Clearly, this is not acceptable.

From a bottom line perspective, a study conducted by the Peterson Institute for Global Economics of 22,000 organizations found that companies that had at least 30% of senior leaders as women had 15% increased profitability. So, the need to bring the glass ceiling down swiftly is more than a gender issue, it is a bottom line business success issue.

Fresh Insights to End the Glass Ceiling answers these elusive questions:

  • Are there real gender differences in leadership traits?
  • What are the real root causes of the glass ceiling?
  • How have some women made it to the top?
  • Who owns the problem?
  • What are the solutions?
  • What actions should organizations and women take to end the glass ceiling phenomena?

With quizzes to test knowledge about the glass ceiling, and an eye toward breaking the long-held myths about women in leadership, Parsons shares both new research and new solutions. It includes action plans for c-suite/executives, interest groups, talent-development professionals and individuals (both women and men) so that the glass ceiling may be shattered once and for all.

Product Description
The author, an alcoholic in recovery for the past 34 years, recounts her life growing up in a family of alcoholics, her two marriages to alcoholics and then succumbing herself to the lure of alcohol. Her work demonstrates how alcohol wreaks its devastation on the lives of everyone surrounding the alcoholic. Nancy A. Parsons speaks from her own point of view from a small child growing to adulthood, her married life with her alcoholic husbands, her own life as an alcoholic and finally, her escape, with God’s very real grace and the help of Alcoholics Anonymous. "I wrote this book to give someone on path of the trials and tribulations of an alcoholic destruction the courage and strength to turn aside from that path to healing and wholeness. Life becomes difficult, or even impossible in some cases. You have to swallow your pride and go for help. We are in a drug oriented world today. Our children are affected by our behavior, and by our choices. If you need help or love an alcoholic and just do not know where to turn, there is help out there."

What Your Car Color Says About You

What your car color says about you. Does your car “color” your personality. Car color can act as a psychological shortcut that expresses how we want the world to think about us. Gender and age influence choices, along with what colors are available on the lot. “Color preferences change throughout time and may differ by region or vehicle type,” says Nancy Lockhart, a color marketing manager with Axalta Coating Systems (formerly DuPont), a global car-coating business in Detroit. The vehicle style, design and branding can influence color choices. “A luxury sedan is more popular in black and white colors, but a small and sporty version is widely associated with red and colorful shades. You can take these observations with a grain of salt, but here is what our experts say your car’s color says about you. The rankings in this story are based on the Axalta Automotive Color Popularity Report for 2013. White. White suggests that you have taste and elegance, says Marcie Cooperman, a professor of color theory at Parsons The New School for Design in New York City. Or, it could be that you live in a desert climate and white doesn’t absorb heat like black, and you want a car that won’t bake you like a human Pop-Tart. “However, white can be hard to keep clean in some regions,” Cooperman says. “It’s a high-maintenance color. “Black became the number one color for luxury,” Lockhart says. According to Axalta report of 2013, black was the most popular color for luxury vehicles. Black is the sophisticate’s color, Augustin says. Just think of the little black dress and black-tie dinners. You’ll see diplomats (or rather, their drivers) maneuvering stately black town cars through the urban landscape, and royalty riding through the night in midnight-toned limousines. “Black is a power color, for sure,” Cooperman says. It’s the color of security and style, Cooperman says. A silver car color indicates that you’re a high-class lady or gentleman with an eye on the upscale, Augustin says. Your status is higher in the world, and you’re not afraid to show it. “As a fallback color, it’s nice,” Cooperman says, because it doesn’t get as dirty. Source: chimeramotors
