This is a book I truly enjoyed and definitely needed. This book, The Little Black Book of Success: Law of Leadership for Black Women (TLBBOS) was a gift given to me ~10years ago by my mentor while I was in the officer ranks of the military. I used my original book so much....it got to the point that I needed to purchase another one. My mentor knew, as a young inner city black, smart, no non-sense Philadelphian, I needed help with my sharp tongue. It was very apparent to her I was never given professional survival skills or the "right" tools to use as a black female in the leadership world ( not all tools are in place for the black women to use) and most importantly, in the work environment leading other than black subordinates. I learned so much from this book; it gave me Pearls of Wisdom (POW) I still use and live by as a professional today.
The book nickname is TLBBOS. For me and for many of my mentees, TLBBOS will always be a great reference that is easily retrieved, understood and believed. I am now a mentor to a group of professionals and this is the book I have purchased for each mentee and we have all agreed this book will be our "Bible" to use as Black and Educated (BAEs) professional in the challenging work force of today's America.
In addition to traditional prayer, we also look to use this book as our guidance as we discuss some of our unique and challenging experiences as BAE professionals. We are so thankful to the three dynamic women who realized black women are natural leaders but quit often they are not aware and even more of a problem, many of their employers and colleagues are not willing to accept them in the leadership equation. With TLBBOS black women will be cradled, awakened, groomed and guided using unique and personal tools by the three phenomenal authors on how to play the game in the work force and WIN.
Different perspectives, especially explaining how we can merge these ideals with our faith. The more you read this book the more my skills are sharpened . The mama-isms hit home. I felt this book was a combonatinn of what the woman in my family were trying to teach me. I’m
Purchasing the workbook next and I’ll continue to read this book over and over . It’s just that good !
