Description

"Why doesn't anyone ever talk about this topic in this way?"

It is the question on most women's minds when they first discover the instinctive, evolutionary, biological factors that prevent women from reaching the pinnacles of success in most male-designed (and therefore male-dominated) workplaces.

Women graduate from universities, law schools, film schools and MBA programs at the same rate as men, but ten years later, are woefully under-represented in the upper ranks of their professions. And it's not the "mommy-track" that's holding them back! It's that the behavior most highly rewarded in corporate environments not only goes against their instincts, but also goes against what gets the best outcomes for the organization!

This book takes an honest, unapologetic approach to examining how entrenched systems of networking, negotiation and advancement work against "female brains," and how women can compete on a playing field designed by men to reward their own achievements.

It covers how to:

• Make decisions quickly and proceed confidently, even with incomplete information

• Announce that what you're about to say has value, every time you speak up

• Own your place in the hierarchy, and stop doing the "work favors" that don't advance your career

• Mentor, sponsor and amplify other women, and much more...

Companies will also discover why they keep losing top female performers and what they must do to recruit, reward and - most importantly - retain them.

This eye-opening book tackles a difficult subject with candor, humor and confidence - and draws the roadmap for when each of those traits helps you get ahead in the workplace.
