Bookmark: The Athena Doctrine: How Women (and the Men Who Think Like Them) Will Rule the Future by John Gerzema and Michael D’ Antonio
Good news awaits the reader of the extraordinary and inspiring stories in The Athena Doctrine by John Gerzema and Michael D’ Antonio. The authors describe women and men who lead innovative organizations with the skills, values, and attributes usually associated with women.
The results of quantitative research compiled from 64,000 people surveyed in 13 nations provide conclusive evidence why collaboration, empathy, and listening qualities are what the world needs now. In a time when interdependence and transparency rank high as qualities necessary for success, the attributes of a “zero-sum game” leadership style is no longer an option.
The authors explain that, “This shift toward the feminine does not portend the ‘end of men,’ but it does suggest a natural balancing that vastly increases the capacity of both men and women to solve problems and create a good life.”
