Nice Girls Don't Get The Corner Office: 101 unconscious mistakes women make...
About this deal
This BS that is mascaraed as coaching is nothing more than an attempt to push women shift their behavior because men aren’t willing to shift their own. By informing others you show respect for their need to know, but without *your* action being contingent upon *their* approval.
I think it's fine when you're trying to decide where to meet for dinner or what to wear, but professionally, it shows that you can't make a decision. Be one of the first few people to speak up at a meeting--you never want to be the last person to speak.
Use them as an opportunity to showcase a skill or knowledge you have(not note-taking or coffee making).
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. Use time management tricks like keeping a pile of papers on extra, not putting your pencil down when someone walks into your office and hanging a ‘Please Don’t Disturb’ sign on your door. This brilliant book is packed with more than 100 mistakes women make at work and the practical ways to stop doing the things that really hold them back.
This is a used book - there is no escaping the fact it has been read by someone else and it will show signs of wear and previous use.

And it's great for those who earn a good income and are choosing between having a holiday or depositing savings, but what about those who are barely making rent every month, for whatever reason? I think my opinion isn't valid, so I try to talk (on the rare occasions that I *do* talk) as quickly as possible so that someone else with a better opinion can speak. Things I already know: I act nice to get people on my side, meanwhile, forgetting about my own needs because I want everyone to like me. Yet the longer they wait to speak the higher the chances someone will say what they are thinking and get credit for it.Frankel first has the reader take a 49 question quiz, which is able to determine which of the eight areas are both your strong and weak points.
