Sheryl Sandberg, of Facebook and Lean In fame, pens a foreword to this memoir and leadership book from advertising executive Feldheim. Readers will be hooked from the start by Feldheim's intensely personal story of her life both in business and at home: episodes from Procter & Gamble, where she worked for 17 years, along with the ups and downs of parenthood. Some topics will be familiar to readers of other how-to-be-a-leader books, like adopting the insights of compassion, overcoming fear and anxiety, and refuting harmful perceptions of so-called bossy traits attributed to women. Feldheim excels at providing roadmaps, such as a manager toolkit about psychological safety, introspective self-care exercises, and end-of-chapter activities that not only identify potential issues and benefits but also reveal hidden individual merits. A few example activities: values alignment in a relationship, work-life balance coping strategies, feedback samples, 10 tips to manage highly political environments, and gratitude exercises. An incredibly forward-looking and positive example of how to be and how to work in today’s world.— Booklist
In Dare to Lead Like a Girl, Dalia Feldheim shares her wit, wisdom, and worldliness. By combining storytelling and scientific research, she provides clear and accessible advice for women (and men) who strive for a meaningful, purposeful, and successful life.— Tal Ben-Shahar, NYT best-selling author of "Happier"
I’ve always believed that instead of trying to ‘fix’ women, we should learn from them. I had the pleasure of awarding Dalia the P&G Europe diversity award in 2003 for her internal maternity guide ‘Mom’ and am excited she is bringing all her knowledge to a broader audience. Dalia’s book Dare to Lead Like a Girl is brilliantly crafted, combining her personal experience as a senior leader, her vast academic knowledge, and practical advice for what leaders can do to allow women and men to lead from their heart—a must read for all managers aspiring to become inspirational leaders—women and especially men!— Paul Polman, cofounder and chair, IMAGINE
Dalia Feldheim captures in concrete, easily understood, yet fresh terms the qualities of outstanding leadership. She shows how to take advantage of natural attributes particularly possessed by women—empathy, nurturing, intuition—and encourages women to take advantage of their natural strengths, to recognize their purpose, and take strength from their passion. She has, I think, very effectively encouraged men like me to do the same.— John Pepper, retired CEO/Chairman, Procter & Gamble
This important book will help awaken humanity to the fact that the answer to most of our problems – planetary, societal, business – are right in front of us: the long-overdue elevation and celebration of the feminine energy that is our most distinguishing quality as humans. That energy is available to men and women alike. We must recognize it, cherish it and harness it.— Raj Sisodia, co-founder, Conscious Capitalism Inc.
