How to Break Through Self-Sabotage, Embrace Your Power, and Create Your Success

A disruptive guide to help women reject societal double standards and succeed by showing up as their authentic, vulnerable, powerful selves.

We’ve all heard of the “glass ceiling” for women. Yet even for women who break through the societal barriers to success, there’s another danger: the glass ledge. “When the very qualities that help us achieve greatness turn into self-defeating behaviors, that’s when we trip over the glass ledge,” teaches Iman Oubou.

With The Glass Ledge, Oubou offers a disruptive guide that explores the ten most common themes around which women tend to derail themselves. Each chapter focuses on one of these self-sabotaging themes, incorporating counterintuitive and eye-opening information, as well as anecdotes from the author’s personal journey, stories from other high-profile, successful women, and scientific research about why we act the way we do. This is a practical and inspired call for any woman who wants to rewrite the narrative of success—and pay her efforts forward into the world.
