I always enjoy books written by women; they always bring an interesting perspective to break the tendency of a patriarchal and overly masculine world. 

In my opinion, the book "Winning at Leading: Women in Leadership" by Ronica Watkins seems to be one of those works that brings a unique perspective on leadership. With her background, she seems like a competent figure suited to bring about this concept of change. 

In the process of reading this book, I am reminded of the many revolutionary changes that can be brought about by more egalitarian and humanistic leadership. The author conveys that leadership isn't a destination; it's a journey related to growth, adaptation, and self-discovery. Healthy leadership is about bringing everyone along to develop and become the best versions of themselves. 

Many practical steps are given to fellow women by the author, conveyed simply and easily. As women leaders, it's important for us to advocate for each other, mentor each other, and dare to fight for our own rights and those of others.

The struggle to create a better environment for women is not the struggle of one person but is achieved through a collective movement where everyone can be a catalyst for change for those around them. 

I rate this book 4 out of 5 because I like the concept of the leadership approach it teaches, which is based on a humane and collaborative approach. Mentorship, advocacy, and women supporting women are narratives she often emphasizes in the book. The book's easy-to-understand writing, flawless editing, and good storytelling are also reasons for my similar rating.

The author emphasizes key points she wants to convey well, provides descriptive examples, and gives summaries so readers can understand the author's intentions again.

As a downside to this book, some points feel repeated in several parts. I think the author's intention to emphasize key points is good. Emphasizing points repeatedly could be done with diversified ideas or the giving of personal stories that can strengthen the idea in the reader's mind. Thus, the reason for deducting a star. 

I recommend this book for women change agents, businesswomen, and those who want to implement healthier leadership in their organizations.

A very good review! Repeating facts in a book is a negative aspect which makes readers lose interest in the book.

Since male-written publications are frequently unrelatable to women living in patriarchal societies, I greatly enjoy the books that teach you how to hone your leadership abilities from the viewpoint of a successful woman. Although I think this book is quite interesting, I'm not sure if I should read it because of its repetitive nature.

I find it cool that Ms. Watkins earned a Ph.D. And brought that level of education into researching and writing this book. Sounds like with some light editing to reduce repetition, it could be a 5!

Thank you for your review! I also like books written by women but repeating a point too many times can make me lose interest, however I would still like to give the book a try.

Not many women can succeed in the current business world because it's a world that is built by men for men. Yet, there are examples of women who succeeded and that did it in a way that is more caring and less cutthroat.

The approach to leadership from the author’s perspective is fresh and pleasing. The idea of developing and growing together to achieve success is wonderful. Women need to look out for each other because, in many places, gender bias still acts as a hurdle to success. Repetition impedes my enjoyment of a book. It's a bit sad that this book repeats several points. I really liked your review, which brought all the relevant aspects of the book together.

This is a good review that briefly summarises what the book is about. From what's written in the book, the author is trying to change or improve how leadership is done, and also provides insights into some things the reader might have not been aware of.
