Description

Its also common knowledge the office space is heavily geared toward men, so is the rest of the world. Of course, inequality still exists and begins as soon as women graduate college and enter the workforce. Frankel reveals a distinctive set of behaviors--over 130 in all--that women learn in girlhood that ultimately sabotage them as adults.

It was a bit eye-opening on female behaviors that I've always known, but never really put in the forefront of my subconscious. TL;DR - be confident, play to your strengths, read the room (or office in this case), use critical thinking, maintain professionalism and be goal oriented. For a start she has you take a 49 question quiz, which can determine which of the eight areas are your strong and weak points. Therefore, when you fail to secure one, you are severely hindering yourself and, ultimately, sabotaging your career. By asking for help with the tasks they do not have to do, they can lessen their workload and improve on quality.Maybe this book and this attitude works in some corporations, but I believe you can be a successful woman without completely erasing your feminine personality to act more like a man. Her management and peers all commented on how Susan was a delight to work with but no one seriously considered her for more serious positions or highly-influential projects.

While some of this is applicable and helpful, I don't see it being the book that is going to make or break the difference in my career. What we don't need in 2017 is a corporate, literary version of Cosmopolitan magazine, telling women how to comply with men's expectations of women at work. And "It's true I don't have all the qualifications listed, but what makes me a viable candidate is my depth of hands-on experience. I first felt like giving up reading the book from its first chapters but I continued to read it all by seeing it as a historical curiosity and laughing at the outdated stuff. I was always taught that it's better to not say anything and have people think you're dumb than to open your mouth and have it confirmed, but I do know that such thinking is wrong.The text employs a critical tone throughout (here's everything you are doing wrong wrong wrong you silly girl *eyeroll*) that is not the most constructive investment of your time. Some of the advice assumes the reader is a relatively high earner and some is so painfully obvious that it's insulting. Freelancers, arbeiders, creatieven, onderwijzers, verpleegsters, you name it: driekwart van dit boek is nutteloos voor jullie. My lowest scores were in act, play, and market, but I think my worst drawback is my soft soprano voice. This is important because it shows how she can view situations objectively-which adds to her credibility.
