Leading From The Outside With Stacey Abrams

| Ally Cummings

Whether you’re interested in women’s leadership, want to run for office, know a woman who should run, or just want to be in a group of supportive women–our virtual book club is the place for you. Our most recent read is the New York Times Best Seller, Lead from the Outside: How to Build Your Future and Make Real Change by Stacey Abrams.

National leader Stacey Abrams has written the go-to guide for harnessing the strengths of not fitting the expected mold of a leader but finding the ability to succeed anyway.

“Leadership is hard. Convincing others―and yourself―that you are capable of taking charge and achieving more requires insight and courage. Lead from the Outside is the handbook for outsiders, written with an eye toward the challenges that hinder women, people of color, the working class, members of the LGBTQ community, and millennials ready to make a change. Stacey uses her hard-won insights to break down how ambition, fear, money, and failure function in leadership, and she includes practical exercises to help you realize your own ambition and hone your skills. Lead from the Outside discusses candidly what Stacey has learned over the course of her impressive career in politics, business and the nonprofit world: that differences in race, gender, and class provide vital strength, which we can employ to rise to the top and create real and lasting change.”

She Should Run had the opportunity to ask Stacey Abrams some questions and she was kind enough to provide the answers. Check out these clips below to hear from the best-selling author herself:
