The author proposes that the language of women leaders is shaped by the type of corporation they work for. Based on the latest research, three types of 'gendered corporation' appear to affect the way women interact with colleagues: the male-dominated, the gender-divided and the gender-multiple. Senior women have to carry out extra 'linguistic work' to make their mark in the boardroom. In male-dominated and gender-divided corporations, women must develop an extraordinary linguistic expertise just to survive. In gender-multiple corporations, this linguistic expertise helps them to be highly regarded and effective leaders."--BOOK JACKET.
