Lauren shares her practices for creating opportunities, such as communicating your value, to intentionally owning your goals. So many of us float between jobs rather than understand our strengths to use them to our advantage. Lauren is an amazing role model for this to us. She shares every step of the way how her story has unfolded (and continues to unfold) and how we can readily incorporate the skills, tips, and tricks for our own use.
I especially loved the idea of the power fund which helps us view ourselves as our biggest asset and to invest in ourselves. “My power fund gives me the money to make decisions from a position of power instead of one where I have to take a job or do something that doesn’t align with my values out of sheer financial necessity.” This is a must for all of us – to recognize that we all bring so much value to the table and, by investing in ourselves, we can decide which table we sit at.
“The Develop[HER] Playbook is an entertaining, personal, and practical skills book that will appeal to all readers. I’ll be sharing it with many of my colleagues so they, too, can be reminded of exactly how valuable each and every one of us is and our obligation to ourselves and others to find the right seat at the table.
For a woman in technology reading this review (the intended audience of the book) – please read further if you seek: inspiration, empowerment, sage advice on networking, and a bit of courage to speak up and stand out – all in service of taking charge of your career!
With one part business savvy, one part patient persistence, and a bunch of “been-there-done-that” perspective as a woman in tech, Lauren guides you: to stand out, create your own opportunities, and learn how to communicate your value. If you practice as Lauren describes, you’ll have great success with interviews, presentations, and networking/social events -- especially when you can demonstrate proof points from an At-A-Girl Journal, seek dialog through an ask & offer approach, and/or show how you’ve intentionally added a new skill to your toolkit. Lauren’s micro-commitments for networking – awesome for any introvert! Lauren’s LinkedIn tips – priceless! Finally: prioritizing yourself (career, personal health, etc.) is never a bad investment. Chapter 8 has some brilliant recommendations on how to take advantage of professional help, communities, and women-centric organizations.
Lauren what an outstanding accomplishment! You’ve come a long way – and you’re only just beginning. I love the way you think. Keep up the great work and thank you for your thought leadership!
