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. Girls are protected from overcoming many barriers, like failure, and consequently there is a kind of emotional stunting that we turn a blind eye to and justify through the idea of inherent gender characteristics. Yet fear of being an imposition, lack of social connections and inadequate networks cause women not to seek and build mentorship during their careers.

As soon as you enter the world of business, it’s time to check that little girl inside you at the door. If it's the latter, that's just wildly unprofessional and nobody should ever do that, but if it's the former, I'm a little confused as to how I should actually sit, then. The now-retired author Lois P Frankel, is a psychotherapist, consultant, executive coach and keynote speaker with over twenty-five years experience in career coaching. Another mistake women make is that when they do play the game, they do so safely and within the boundaries. One of the books I read and I would like to share my thoughts on is “Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office by Lois P.She spoke with a delicate Southern accent and had an alluring way of cocking her head and smiling when listening to others.

Sometimes she has a truly valuable nugget for you, but most of the time, it's safe (and maybe better) to ignore. I need to let my confidence come across so that the people I am speaking with know I mean what I say and they'll stop questioning or undermining me.

As a young feminist who is just starting out in her career, I was relatively certain that the professional world would have changed since Frankel wrote her book and that acting in a professional (yet reserved) fashion would be sufficient in today's workplace. Too many occassions of being told how dumb my opinion/thought/comment/question was has made me incredibly wary of ever opening my mouth, even if I know that I'm right. Because we've been so conditioned to be pleasing to others, accusing a woman of behaving in an unpleasing manner is like an automatic shut off button that manipulative people use against us. 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.

All of our books are 100% brand new, unread and purchased directly from the publishers in bulk allowing us to pass the huge savings on to you! Each of these questions relates to one of seven categories: 1) how you act 2) think 3) work 4) play 5) look 6) sound 7) market. For years, I have been trying to avoid the politics because I thought I was above it, and I thought it was the "right" thing to do.Always think that you're EQUAL to the other person (someone may be of higher rank, but that doesn't make them better--hard habit to break from a military background, though). My lowest scores were in act, play, and market, but I think my worst drawback is my soft soprano voice.
