Kicking Ass in a Corset
Kicking Ass in a Corset: Jane Austen's 6 Principles for Living and Leading from the Inside Out | Andrea Kayne
5 posts | 2 read | 1 to read
"What can organizational leaders in business, education, government, and most any enterprise learn from an unemployed, unmarried woman who lived in patriarchal, misogynistic rural England more than 200 years ago? As it turns out, a great deal. In identifying the core virtues of Austen's heroines-confidence, integrity, humility, playfulness, pragmatism, and diligence-Andrea Kayne uncovers the six principles of internally referenced leadership. Utilizing practical exercises, real-life case studies, and literary and leadership scholarship, Kicking Ass in a Corset is a road map for effective leadership that teaches readers of any age or profession how to tune out the external noise and listen to themselves"--

I started this book months ago & then got busy & never finished it. Finally, this week I got my long overdue book review up on my blog. While somewhat a “niche” business book in that it is targeted to younger women & to those who are at least familiar with Austen‘s 6 main heroines, I found it an engaging & interesting look at how the characteristics & traits from Jane Austen‘s 6 main characters can build a balanced leader.

This was a short but very insightful read!

Basically, this book uses 6 Austen heroines to display 6 different leadership principles and explains how to incorporate them into your day to day life.

The book had a slightly academic tone and structure since it is published by a university, but it still flowed well.

#Bookmail from this weekend. I‘m not sure how well Jane Austen will work in a business book, but I asked the book tour organizers I work with to sign me up for any & all Austen-related books & I have a book tour for this one in early October. It looks like a quick read & should be interesting/entertaining.
