Leading with Care

Author: Mary Cantando

In Leading with Care, management expert Mary Cantando examines the stories of trailblazing women in the developing world who, with help from the nonprofit organization CARE, have capitalized on personal and professional opportunities on the road to establishing self-sufficiency. As their stories reveal, through CARE, women around the world have overcome adversity to build new businesses, improve their health, prioritize education, and foster change in their communities.

But adversity can be found in every area of the world, and the book also includes the unique stories of top female executives who have similarly taken control of their lives, risen above their hardscrabble beginnings, and sought to give back locally and globally. Featuring new interviews from leaders at major global organizations, this book offers a look at how women around the world are not only inspiring but creating change. Cantando then maps out how readers can apply the lessons and best practices of these women in their own companies, whether they're C-suite executives at multinational corporations or run part-time businesses out of their home.
