Women and power do not go well together? What rubbish! Here Eva Kirchesch and Adriana Olivotti prove that women crave power as much as men. Their theory: women are as power–hungry as men but –– for many reasons –– cannot handle power structures as well as their male colleagues. Men, on the other hand, often do not recognize power play at work for what it is. And they often do not understand why women have such difficulties with power. It is not only men's fault, nor not only women's fault that there are so few women in powerful positions. The main reasons are to be found in their socialization and the subsequent behavior types and understanding of roles.
However, we are currently experiencing a transformation: women such as Angela Merkel or Hillary Clinton pursue power in a self–confident and feminine way. With their way of working and thinking, women are an essential factor for future success. The authors' advice for women is to find their own path and not copy male careers, because this does not work long–term. If you want to change something, do it now. The time is ripe.
The authors carried out numerous interviews with well–known and interesting German women, who hold are have held powerful positions and describe noticeably similar thoughts and experiences, despite leading very different lives and careers. Yet men are also able to voice an opinion (the HR manager of a large German company as well as a representative of male research and male labor), and they, too, describe their experiences and views. Making the book equally interesting and enlightening for both men and women.
