Take Advantage of Meetings 
Business meetings often present opportunities for individuals to stand out in a positive way, says Susan Butler, author of "Become the CEO of You, Inc." (Paribus Press , 2006). Prepare smart questions for the presenter in advance or take notes while he or she is speaking to help you think of something to ask. Pose your query while standing to grab the attention of everyone in attendance, and if you're not among all peers, be sure to first introduce yourself. The effort will show you're confident and care about the company's well-being, she says. (July 14, 2008)  Career Tip of the Week, The Wall Street Journal 

Women Leaders: Breaking Through by Chris Petersen
For years, women in business have agonized over the prospect of hitting the glass ceiling, the invisible barrier that keeps them from achieving the same levels of success as their male counterparts. It has long been assumed that the reason this glass ceiling exists is because of institutionalized sexism within most companies, a holdover from the days before the equal rights movement. (April 2008)  U.S. Business Review

 "Retired corporate executive Susan Bulkeley Butler shares the most important lessons she learned in her 30-year climb up the ladder of success.  She includes the strategies that enabled her to become Accenture's first female partner and ultimately the managing partner of that corporation's office of the CEO.  Butler offers a "make it happen" model derived from her consulting experiences with Fortune 500 companies. And she explains how to set a clear vision for "You, Inc.," build a board of directors, develop a plan to make change happen and navigate the day-to-day journey.”
