Work or family. Today or tomorrow. Service to self or others. Intrinsic versus extrinsic motivation. These seemingly everyday challenges women business leaders face are often presented and perceived as “either/or” scenarios.

In their newly released book, “Both/And Thinking: Embracing Creative Tensions to Solve Your Toughest Problems”, co-authors Marianne Lewis and Wendy Smith offer a solution to those very challenges: a reframing of those “either/or” scenarios as something completely different — and, potentially, transformative.

Join us in a webinar as Marianne Lewis, dean and professor of management in the University of Cincinnati’s Carl H. Lindner College of Business and Wendy Smith, Dana J. Johnson Professor of Management in the University of Delaware’s Alfred Lerner College of Business and Economics talk with 4 successful female leaders about how they navigate both/and solutions to enable more female leadership and diversity in governance.

“Both/And Thinking” has received attention from national media outlets such as Newsweek, MarketWatch and Fast Company. It has been named to The Next Big Idea Club’s list of “most promising, must-read nonfiction titles” released in August 2022. Adam Grant, a New York Times bestselling author and host of the TED podcast “WorkLife,” put “Both/And Thinking” on his list of “The 10 New Books to Enrich Your Thinking.”
