The book looks at some of the mistakes women make when conducting themselves in the business world. I've been reading through all of the coaching tips presented in this book for the last two weeks and I can't seem to put the book on the shelf and deem it as a book I've finished reading.
Frankel tells readers that business is a game that they can win it if they play it right. She is a business coach that helps women recognize and work through some of their faux pas.
"The areas in which women often aren't quite as skilled as men are knowing where the imaginary boundaries are and understanding the unspoken rules. Many of the suggestions are counter to everything we learned growing up," writes Frankel.
Some of the chapter names include:
- How You Play the Game
- How You Act
- How You Think
- How You Sound
- How You Look
- How You Respond
After detailing what many women do for each category, Frankel then provides coaching tips to correct the actions. It is just a really no nonsense book with great information and meaningful coaching tips. I have found myself in so many of the mistakes and found great comfort in learning how to correct my own actions.
It is well written and makes for a great professional reference guide for professional women.
