Professor Jeremy Sanders FRS Deputy Vice-Chancellor & Head of the School of Physical Sciences, University of Cambridge

Fleur Bothwick Director of Diversity & Inclusiveness, EMEIA, Ernst & Young LLP

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I recently started a new job and was having difficultly navigating the politics and personalities in my new environment. After a particularly challenging week, I picked up this book and immediately found it helpful. The book helped me realize how I was subtly but surely sabotaging myself. I appreciated that the author translated the concepts into actionable steps. The information in the book is useful not only for women who work in male-dominated industries, but for all women who want to improve their performance at work.

There are so few books on this topic. If you don't have a woman role model or a mentor, you can easily feel lost. Of course the concepts in the book are as much applicable to men but its nice to get advice for women from women.
