Transcending the “Invisible Rules” That Create Barriers for Women Advancing Women Podcast

    • Self-Improvement

This week I talk with Dr. Holly Catalfamo who shares her findings about her book The invisible rules: What's really holding women back in business and how to fix it (by Holly Catalfamo and Paul Harrietha).


We discuss why the advice so often given to women to get ahead doesn’t work. We expose the inequitable hidden rules and discuss how to transcend, and advance based on the authors research findings from intensive interviews with 50 executive women. We’ll share the best practice learning from women who have achieved professional success at the highest level.


“Like it or not. There are two sets of rules that govern corporate employment practices, one set for men, and one set for women. One set that continues to preserve a long-standing male power structure by assuring that a disproportionate number of men achieve senior leadership status and the big paychecks that go with those positions and a second set of powerful, deeply rooted, and largely imperceptible rules that make the pursuit of senior leadership far more demanding - and uncertain - for aspiring women”. (Invisible Rules, p. 3).


If you are truly committed to gender equity and if transcending barriers is a top priority, then awareness followed by bold action is the answer. Bold actions create momentum, and we need that momentum to fix this deeply broken leadership pipeline that relegates far too many talented, highly qualified women to the sidelines.
