TheNew York Timesbestseller, which for 10 years has been a must-have for women in business, is now completely revised and updated. In this new edition, internationally recognized executive coach Lois P. Frankel reveals a distinctive set of behaviors-over 130 in all-that women learn in girlhood that ultimately sabotage them as adults. She teaches you how to eliminate these unconscious mistakes that could be holding you back and offers invaluable coaching tips that can easily be incorporated into your social and business skills. The results for hundreds of thousands of women have been career opportunities they never thought possible-at every stage of their career, from entry-level to the corner office! Stop making "nice girl" errors that can become career pitfalls, such as:

  • Mistake #13: Avoiding office politics. If you don't play the game, you can't possibly win.
  • Mistake #21: Multi-tasking.Just because youcando something, doesn't mean youshoulddo it.
  • Mistake #54: Failure to negotiate.Don't equate negotiation with confrontation.
  • Mistake #70: Inappropriate use of social media.Once it's out there,it's hard to put the toothpaste back in the tube.
  • Mistake #82: Asking permission.Children, not adults, ask for approval. Be direct, be confident.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great tips for women *Pros*: Great tips, good reminders, some eye-opening ideas that will make you think about your attitude and behavior at work. *Cons*: it's just extensive. You'll have to plan out how to pick which ones to focus on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Opened my mind! As a "nice girl" I was a little bit apprehensive about a lot of suggestions in this book, and quite frankly much of it wasn't relevant to me (at least yet -- I'm a young professional, just starting out). That being said, what did apply from this book applied in a BIG way. It's changed how I communicate and portray myself. I keep her lessons in the back of my mind at every meeting or professional event I'm at and I do find that I have become more confident as a result. Her aggressive writing style can seem kind of intimidated while reading it, I actually felt embarrassed reading some of it at some points, but she certainly gets her point across. It's not really a fun read, but it's worth the read. I've recommended this book to friends of mine who are also starting out and they've felt the same way about it.
