In the latest of our ‘Top Reads’ ahead of the Women in Leadership Forum in Barcelona on 5 October, Bonnie Marcus examines how women can take control of their own ambition. Marcus believes that these tips can help all of us to avoid the ‘societal norms and expectations around gender’ which often hold women back.

Along with standard advice such as creating a strategic career plan, Marcus notes that women have to let go of the idea that work performance alone will get you ahead. She provides seven thought-provoking tips for women to boost their own ambition.
