“Winning the highest job requires a journey with more twists and turns.”

– JoAnn Lublin, author of a new book “Earning It: Hard-won Lessons from Trailblazing Women at the Top of the Business World.”

The book is the subject of an article titled “Five Common Traits of Women Who Reach the C-Suite” by Stephanie Vozza on fastcompany.com.

The book includes insights from leaders such as Diane Bryant, Intel; Penny Herscher, former CEO of FirstRain; Ann Mulcahey, former Xerox CEO; and Ellen Kullman, former CEO of DuPont.

The article outlines several steps that have helped these successful women and others “blaze a trail that can be followed.” These include:

    • Have a background in Technology, math or engineering
    • Gain extensive line management experience
    • Don’t be afraid to raise your hand
    • Be willing to take risks
    • Find a sponsor
