This alternative leadership model presented in the handbook responds to the need for leaders who aspire to create egalitarian, democratic, and pluralistic societies based on collaborative decision-making, coalition-building, and gender equality. Leading to Choices features a contextual chapter, twelve interactive workshop sessions, and an appendix containing culture-specific scenarios relevant to the cultivation of effective leadership skills. The workshop sessions, based on real stories of individuals and organizations, progress from strategies for enhancing personal leadership potential and communication skills to collaboratively creating and strengthening learning organizations and societies that promote a participatory and dialogical leadership style. The handbook's flexible curriculum may be adapted and customized to suit the diverse cultural, political, and socio-economic needs of women and men around the world. Leading to Choices is currently being used in women's leadership training workshops in Afghanistan, Cameroon, India, Jordan, Kyrgyzstan, Lebanon, Malaysia, Morocco, Nigeria, Pakistan, Palestine, Tanzania, Turkey, Uzbekistan, and Zimbabwe. The Arabic-Maghreby and French editions of the handbook were tested and adapted by L'Association Démocratique des Femmes du Maroc, WLP's partner organization in Morocco. Culture-specific editions of Leading to Choices in Arabic-Shamy, Hausa, Persian, Russian, and Uzbek are currently being reviewed and will be published in the near future.
