Description

The powers that be will want to do everything to keep you happy due to the value you bring to the company. It would be nice if someday, we, as a society, ever get to a time when men aren't advantaged in business by their sex and women didn't have to make themselves over just to get ahead. For example, over-accessorizing can distract people from listening to your message; instead, they might focus on the dangling bracelet around your wrist.

Most glaryingly obvious is her consistent comparison of men vs women, then stating how the presumed reader is not a man and should act like a woman, but not too much. I almost didn't make the purchase because I pretty much hate the color pink (it's been forced on me all my life) and I didn't like the title. Everything from the way we carry ourselves to the way we speak and even the way we look (makeup, hair, etc. As a woman in the workplace, it can be difficult to overcome the pressures and teachings of society, parents and peers to be a "good girl" by going with the flow and not being assertive to get needs met. I would absolutely listen to this again because its chalked full of tips and advice that apply to so many different situations a woman finds herself in at work.

Frankel reveals a distinctive set of behaviors--over 130 in all--that women learn in girlhood that ultimately sabotage them as adults. I like to think that I'm building my career in a modern work environment where gender equality is assumed and diversity is abundant. There's some moderately useful gender-blind advice for how to handle sticky situations at work (conflict resolution, discussing promotions, not unduly taking blame, etc. As we change and grow our areas that we reference to in this book will also change, and I would like to have the ability to take and retake the questionnaire, that guides you through the book, as often as I like. For every professional woman who wants to get ahead - but feels she is at an impasse - NICE GIRLS DON'T GET THE CORNER OFFICE comes to the rescue.

You need to define what you have to offer to another person and what you need/want from the other person. In the bestselling tradition of PLAY LIKE A MAN, WIN LIKE A WOMAN, comes this groundbreaking book offering advice everyone woman needs to know to stop sabotaging her own career - and get ahead in the workplace. Of course, I can only speak about the experiences I had, articles I read and characteristics I see in people I admire; actually that is the whole point of reading these books, to learn more about behaviors that might be holding me and women back and get better at identifying and modifying them. Just because you can do something, doesn't mean you should do it: I think only this year I learned multitasking is not such a positive thing, before would have been the top answer to “Share with me your 3 top strengths”. Consenting to these technologies will allow us to process data such as browsing behavior or unique IDs on this site.Things I already know: I act nice to get people on my side, meanwhile, forgetting about my own needs because I want everyone to like me. There is an expectation from colleagues, friends and children that a woman can drop all she is doing to pay attention to someone else. And while apologizing is used to simply ease the tension and avoid conflict, it erodes both a woman’s self-confidence and the confidence others have in her. From one sentence to the next, I alternated between feeling like I learned something noteworthy and just thinking she was crazy and very anti-women. I think this was written before the female empowerment movement, because the content about women supporting women is on the low end.
