Getting to the top can seem like an impossible mission to those in junior and middle manager ranks. Sometimes it can feel like top leadership is an exclusively male club, only accessible to those already highly networked via family and private schooling.

Stepping Up debunks the notion of what a typical leader should look like, or where they are from. Leadership is an option for anyone with leadership ambition. Forget climbing the corporate ladder, nowadays success is more about criss-crossing across multiple roles and companies, and possessing a continuous learning appetite for new opportunities and welcoming new responsibilities.

Follow the practical five-point framework on how to step up and get to the top:
  • Vision: How to set out a clear and compelling vision of the future of the organisation;
  • Votes: How to create networks of followership, and alliances of equals, so that others rise with you and shore up a consensus/buy-in to your vision;
  • Victories: How to establish a track record of wins with your teams to demonstrate success;
  • Values: How to be authentic, how to bring out your key talents and strengths for benefit of all; and
  • Velocity: How to bring energy to every situation, and how to energise and enthuse those around you.
"Sarah is one of the most inspiring leaders I know; anyone wanting to become one too should read this book."
Baroness Martha Lane Fox, Founder,
