The Collective Wisdom of High-Performing Women:
Leadership Lessons from The Judy Project
This important new book for businesswomen looks at the 10 key characteristics of today’s winning leaders. These characteristics — like compassion, honesty, and authenticity — were once seen as feminine weaknesses in business. But today they define the leader who strengthens organizations rather than undermines them.
This book comes from the voices of experience, powerful executives such as Kathleen Taylor, the Royal Bank’s chair of the board; Shelly Lazarus, chair emeritus of Ogilvy and Mather; and Annette Verschuren, former president of Home Depot Canada. They’re among the 70 women who tell compelling, first-person stories about ambition, courage, and the hard choices they’ve made to manage personal and professional lives in the real world of business. It’s sage advice for young women about how they can move up in organizations while remaining true to themselves and to their families.

Reviewer Candy Palmater says: “I would give this as a gift to any women I know of any age. You realize how many women are sitting at big, big tables — the CEO of Dentons Canada, high-ranking bankers, high-ranking IT people, each one telling personal stories of the challenges of their own lives and relaying that as advice to other women. I thought it was really compelling."
Editor Colleen Moorehead is hosting more than a dozen events this fall to talk about Collective Wisdom.
In the past two weeks:
- 200 women turned out at an OpenText event in Waterloo.
- 50 women came to the first of three panel discussions about women leadership at Verity, the women’s club.
- A dozen other events are scheduled this fall.
