Women and leadership


There’s been a lot of discussion about the new book Lean In by Facebook COO Sherly Sandberg. It’s part memoir and part self-help book with posits about women and leadership.

Dr. Dan Gottlieb and his guests advance the conversation about how women lead, what propels women or holds them back, and what leadership is. Dan’s joined by Bonnie St. John, Donna De Carolis, Beth Weinstock, and Autumn Bayles.

Bonnie St. John is the co-author of How Great Women Lead: A Mother-Daughter Adventure into the Lives of Women Shaping The World, which she wrote with her daughter Darcy Deane. In the Clinton Administration, she served as a Director for the National Economic Council. She is the first African-American to win a medal in The Paralympic Games as a ski racer and is CEO of Courageous Spirit, Inc.

Donna De Carolis, Ph.D. is the founding Dean of the Charles D. Close School of Entrepreneurship at Drexel University.

Beth Weinstock is a Leadership Coach and Clinical Psychologist. She is part of the Resilience Group in Narberth.
